No, that's not about to work. You wanna a DVD-VIDEO compliant disc - this requires a special title set/structure and content in mpeg2 with specific bitrates & resolutions!!
Max. res is different for PAL and NTSC, max. bitrate is ca. 9800 mbps.
You should check out all dvd guides and info on: videohelp.com
I made such series on DVD by myself, eg. with ENTERPRISE.
Source was xvid with mp3, no dvd compliant res.
I used virtualDub/nandub to edit & fix the source & decompress it.
Then I used a calculator to calc the max. possible bitrate for 8 eps on a SL DVD.
Then used TMPGEnc to TRANSCODE to 352x288 mpeg2 with high bitrate & very good quality.
Then I've used TMPGDVDAuthor to create menus n stuff and make a correct DVD structure.
After that: burning time! >>> watching >>>
