:whistling: Having copied a short film from a friends DVD to 'My Documents' I then burnt this onto a DVD-R disc using 'Cyberlink Power2 to Go', and also Nero software. The problem I am having is trying to play the DVD-R disc on my DVD Player although it plays well on my PC. I have even tried playing it on a friends DVD Player which is multi region with no success. Any help would be appreciated if not to technical. Thanks.

Thanks for quick reply officialblueboys. I am fairly new to this side of the PC world, so I believe it could quite well be a data DVD, because when I tried to use video in 'Power 2 GO' and it asked for the filename which I gave there was no response when clicking on the open box, so I suppose it did not reconize it.

You need to buy software that can convert to DVD-Video MPEG2 format if you want to play it on any standalone DVD player (and the region code is irrelevant -- home-made DVDs don't have one unless they are illegal straight copies of commercial dvd-videos).
