Welcome to the forums dragco.

There could be several things going wrong here. The first thing we need to ask is what format are your movies in right now? Are they already dvd-video? Or did you burn avi or mp4 or some other format to the discs?

Does your dvd player have support for formats other than dvd-video? You might look in the dvd player manual and see if it mentions avi divx files, or others.

Download a program called MediaInfo. http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en
This program comes with optional crapware/adware in the installer. DO NOT install the crapware that is offered with it. You can opt out of them during install.

Open MediaInfo and then open your original media file with it. Use the Tree view within MediaInfo and then export as a text file. Edit the text file and remove the name of the video.

You should be seeing something like this example:

This file I’m using as an example is an mpeg2 file, but yours may be something else.

Once we know what you have, we should be able to help you a lot better. If your file is an ISO file, you might have to mount it in a virtual drive before examining it with MediaInfo.
