    I'm sorry, I'm lost--what happened? Did the disc eject? A dialog box opened saying the media wasn't supported? Saying that the project was too long?

    Or did it burn/verify successfully, but it won't play on your tabletop/stand alone DVD player?

    Not sure I understand your problem/question, but you should burn to DVD-R for wider compatibility.

    Yeah, what MrSmith said--+R is a fussy medium for tabletop DVD players. Some accept it, others do not. I think the older the DVD player, the more problems you're going to have. Reburn to a -R disc. I've never had problems with -R in the hundreds of discs I've burned.

    Now, if it's a +R DL, there's a problem because I don't think the Macbook writes to -R DL.

    Mine says:

    DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL


    But if your project is ~90min in length, it shouldn't need the DL.
