Look, he(she) made a mistake. I thought we were here to help newbies, not make them feel stupid. Maybe its not the program, some dvd players don't play burned dvds or vcds. Explain a little more in detail what you're doing, also what programs are you using. here are some suggestions: if the movie is an avi, i use vsodivxtodvd to convert to dvd. The program will create the folders you need to burn to dvd. If the movies are mpgs and you want to burn vcds, one of the easiest i've ever used is vcdeasy. It can be as simple as drap and drop the mpgs, it will convert and burn for you. The later versions aren't free though. The program i use now is svcd2dvd because it will put several movies on one dvd, though again its not free. What i would do is try to get the free versions of vsodivxtodvd and vcdeasy and play with them, they are very easy to use. Here's some links: http://www.svcd2dvdmpg.com/ http://www.vso-software.fr/divxtodvd/divxtodvd.htm http://www.vcdeasy.org/index.php If you can't find the free versions let me know, and i'll do what i can as far as getting them to you.
