Windows DVD Maker: DVD Player Reads "No Disc"

Windows DVD Maker: DVD Player Reads "No Disc"

This is my first time making/burning a DVD

I'm trying to make a DVD of my friend's favorite Saturday Mornin
Cartoons from the 80's. I've downloaded all the clips from variou
internet sites (YouTube, Veoh, etc). With most of the clips I have ha
to convert them into an AVI or WMV file (using an online media converte
site). Once downloaded, I then edited the project with Windows Movi
Maker. Then I published it to a brand new blank Memorex brand DVD+R

I had no problems in making the DVD. No errors. Windows DVD Maker too
an *** amount of time to finish encoding the DVD (I fell asleep)
but all ran smoothly.... until I tried to play the finished DVD in m
home DVD player. It reads "NO DISC" on any DVD player I've tried (
have 3 DVD players). The ONLY place the DVD will actually play is on m
PC, where I created it. I'm fine with watching it on my PC, but I'
prefer to be able to watch on my TV in my living room on the sofa

HELP! Is there something else I need to know? Am I not using the righ
DVD-formated disc to play in a home DVD player? (although, the spec
from Memorex say it should be compatible) Is there an advantage to usin
perhaps DVD-RW instead

1. DVD RW not reading blank DVD disks, thinks no disk is in the drive

2. WINDOWS XP Pro SP 3 cannot read CD or DVD-RW disks on DVD-RW drive

The problem I have is nearly identical to what is captured in Windows
article 899527. but that was for WIN XP computers with SP 2 installed. Not
clear if this was fixed in SP3 or still applicable. Have two ATAPI DVD- RW
drives (TDK 440N and a Sony DRU-810A) properly installed as a master/slave
configuration. After loading my software CDs in either drive, WIndows fails
to read them. Light on the drive comes on for a moment but autorun file
fails to run. Looking at the drive on My Computer shows the dirive to be
empty. Clicking on the drive icon results in a message to insert a disk.
Same thing for DVDs previously writtenby these drives. Any suggestions?

3. Buy DVD Online | Best Portable DVD Player | Buy Sony Portable DVD Player

4. DVD-RAM drive can read dvds, read cds, write cds, but cant write dvds

5. ASUS DVD/CDROM player (E616P) cannot read disks on limited account in Windows XP Home SP2

6. put powerpoint slides on cd/dvd disk to play in TV cd/dvd player .

7. Dual disk dvd player not seeing dvd in drive

8. What's the difference between DVD+Ram, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW

9. Windows DVD Maker wont burn dvd

10. Unable to burn DVDs using Windows DVD Maker

11. DVDs burned with Windows DVD Maker (Vista) play fine, but then

12. Windows DVD Maker doesn't recognize my DVD Burner

13. Windows DVD Maker -- DVD Menu Playing Time
