my homemade DVD's will only play on my computer

I made the wrong selection on a pop up and now when I want to make a copy of one of my homemade DVD's they will only play on my computer. They won't play on any of my DVD players. Can you please give me step by step instructions on how to correct my mistake? Thanks for your help!

The popup may have asked about PAL or NTSC. If you're in the US you want to pick NTSC. I would suggest starting over and making a note of the messages and then asking for help. Also, consider reading some of these guides They'll give you a little more control over making your dvds than dvdxcopy does.

Re: my homemade DVD's will only play on my computer

using DVDxcopy to produce "home made DVDs" seems rather strange.
It looks more if you are copying DVDs and probably your home player has some kind of copyprotection mechanism that prevents your discs to play.
