Can't get my dvd's to play on dvd player



i have been downloading files to burn to dvd. they will play on my laptop but not my dvd player. i live in belize were all movies are copies off the internet. so i know my dvd player will play copies. i just can’t get it to play the ones i burn. what am i doing wrong.

is this just to complex for a non techie to do?


i tried searching this topic and couldn’t find anything. maybe i just didn’t put in the right words.

no that i have seen other postings i still dont understand. some of the things you guys are talking about are over my head. i didn’t realize this was so complicated.


Is it a avi file? If so you may have to convert it to DVD format for most DVD players.
