    OK recently I found out that I didn't have a DVD burner installed on my computer Acer\Aspire 3680 running Windows\Vista Home Basic, so I went out and bought a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A USB Device, I intalled the device and the software which installed Nero 7, I burned 2 movies with this thing but when I load them into my home DVD player Magnavox DVD Player/Recorder, they don't play. I can load the DVD into my computer and they play fine. Will someone please give me an Idea as to what the possible problem may be? Perhaps the format?

    Hey Rotary, Thanks for replying so fast. I don't quite understand what you meant, I'm new to this DVD burning stuff. Here's what I do, I open Nero 7, open the DVD option, open file I'm I'm trying to burn, hit burn option. The program says "Burn Complete. I put it in my Home DVD Player, says loading but when I push play, nothing happens, put in in my computer it plays just fine.
