Here is the situation:

Well basically I am trying to zero in on a particular problem related to dvd burning.

I have tried to burn a movie on a cd-wr as a cd video, but afterwords it wouldn't even open up on my Daytek DVD player. I thought at first it might be the disc which has been used quite a few times, so I burned some jpegs on a CD-R, but only two of the photos turned up on the menu of my Daytek Player.

But when I return both discs to my Windows XP Pro "D" drive and open them all the data is definitely there, the movie on one and all 39 pics on the CD-R.

So I am trying to zero in on the problem here, is it the discs, is it the fact that I burned a movie on a CD, as opposed to a DVD-R or DVD-RW, or can the problem be with the burner itself.

I hope this helps.

Video CDs are not liked by some DVD players. Many DVD players made before 2003-2004 cannot read recordable (CD-R) media or make heavy weather of them, therefore support for VCDs is available, but its quality is often worse than standard video cassette quality.
