How to burn a dvd that works on a dvd player?

Right ... I downloaded Shutter Island to watch and thought it was really good so I want my mum and dad to watch it too...I burned onto a empty dvd disc but when I put it into my dvd player it came up with a menu with a file to click on so I pressed enter and it came up with this /..

I clicked again because I thought you'd have to enter some files to get to the actual video file....

It doesn't work seriously you will just sit there pressing enter a thousand times and end up still staring at the same screen.

I need a really pc geek to help me here....

The dvd works on my pc and my laptop on windows media but it won't on my dvd player....my 360 is broke so i don't know if that works and my ps3 is away for repair so again I can't try that I need some help to be able to play the dvd on a big screen (well a bigger screen than my laptop and pc monitor...) any help would be apprieciated =)

    Well, I know the reason why you can't play your burned dvd on your DVD player, because you just burned a data dvd(directly burn your downloaded movie onto dvd disc without convert to right format), so you can play it on laptop and windows media player, but can't play it on your DVD player, you should note, most DVD players only recognize standard video DVD well, so if you want to play the burned dvd on your DVD player, you have to use a right software to convert and burn your downloaded movie to a standard video DVD, you can follow me to use RZ DVD Creator, it can convert any movies to standard video dvd and burn to any dvd disc(DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, etc), easy to use, insert a DVD disc into your computer dvd burner drive, run RZ DVD Creator, select your dvd burner drive as target folder, then drag and drop your movies into the software, at last press START button, you will get a standard video DVD from your movies, and you can play the burned standard video DVD well on your DVD player, and watch on your bigscreen TV with your mum and dad. You can yahoo or google search and download RZ DVD Creator, hope it can help you too.

    DVD format is VOB. It contains two folders Video_TS and Audio_TS, you have to convert your video to DVD compatible video at first, otherwise regular DVD player can not read and play it. If you don't know how to burn a playable DVD, I think this DVD Creator would help you a lot. I always use it to convert and burn movie to DVD to play on my home TV, it's easy to use and works pretty well, if you are interested in it, here is a step by step guide about how to use it.

    Regular DVD players are finicky about playing originally black discs sometimes. You might be better off plugging your laptop into your TV if you can.

    You need a video converter software, not free . An excellent option is ConvertXtoDVD ($50.00)

    http://www.vso-software.fr/products/convert_x_to_d...

    Other option is to connect your PC to the TV, using it as a secondary display
