Disc burning

Can someone tell me why when I burn a disc will it  only play on my laptop.  When I try to play it on a DVD player, it won't read it.  Please help!!!

Re: Disc burning

To clarify...

-what is on the disk? Movies? JPG's? Word documents? Executables?
-what software did you use to Burn it? Is it authored? What speed? Is the disc closed?
-can your DVD player play just movies? Can it handle data disks?

DVD players only read data discs that have media files on them and they have to be created using certain parameters that make the disc readable to the player's operating system. Also, not all DVD players can read recordable discs though newer ones certainly can.
