    I have downloaded some movies from the bit torrents site. My problem is I put the movies on a portable hard drive and watch them on a "SMart Samsung TV", which works fine, Once I have copied the movie to a DVD, however once done the movie will not work in any of my DVD players.. What is changing?
    The portable HD plugs into my Samsung DVD player via a USB cable,,If it plays just fine thru the DVD player why does the DVD not work thru the same player? The DVD will play on my computer,, I have made back up copies of other movies and they work fine in the DVD player, I would like some help in determining what I need to do. Thanks very much.

    Are these torrents in DVD movie format or are they avi or mp4 files?

    I am not sure what format is being used, I put the dvd in the drive, and checked the properties screen, could not find any ifno on what format is being used,, I am pretty much a senior retired newbie,, How else can I look for the formatting info? and thank you very much for responding.

    Right click on the actual file - many torrents have names that end in .mp4 or .avi or .mkv and select 'Properties'.

    Thus:
