DVD burning

I have burned over 50 DVD slide shows and movies.
So far they seem to work on just about anything.
I have used + and - DVD media.

I ran across one piece of software (DVD X Copy) that would not work on a Toshiba or Sony DVD set-top player. I downloaded an update and then it worked OK.

You first need to know if the DVD media is the problem or your player is the problem.

Try the DVD on a computer DVD reader.
Try the DVD on a friends set-top DVD player.
