how would i burn a movie from the media player to dvd and format it to play on my home dvd player
There is no way to even begin to answer a question like this. We don’t even know what kind of file it is. It sounds as though you’ve downloaded a movie onto your hd and want to create a copy…maybe I’m wrong, but that’s the inference I’ve drawn. You need the original disc (movie). I would encourage you to read the forum rules, the “For Help” sticky (above) and then post this question in the appropriate forum.
