Can't get bin/cue to work

Ok, so I have a .bin and a .cue file, and I’ve checked what the .cue has in it to make sure everything is typed out properly in there. It all checks out. I’ve tried using Nero and CDRWin to burn the image but neither work. I want it to play on a DVD player. Do I have to use a DVD-/+R? When I have one of those in it says the CD isn’t supported. I managed to get it to burn to a CD on CDRWin but then when I put the finished product in my DVD player it just said “VCD 1.1” up at the top, then nothing. No movie, no messages, just sat there on the main screen. Please help.
