Check here for what your DVD player is capable of playing back:

Most standalone DVD players can only play certain formats like VCD (MPEG1), SVCD (MPEG2), DVD (MPEG2), and there’s no way to upgrade, as you can’t just installed codecs or software.

A computer can playback just about any format. However you can only play back the different formats providing you install the correct codec/software. That’s the dofference between the PC and the DVD player.

In essence, you need to convert the format you have on the PC to something that the DVD player can playback. reply

I’ll try that again - too many typos:

I have the same issue but am totally lost as to what I actually need to do in lamen’s terms (lol). I burn a dvd. It will pay on my computer but not on my tv. States that the disc is not compatible and when using a -R disc as opposed to a +RW which when I try to play back on tv requests going to dvd management to 'format' the disc. What the heck is going on? Is there something I need to do to prepare the disc prior to recording on it such as formatting it? I am sooooooooooooo lost and am not a 'techie' so please.......take it easy on me (wink) reply
