    Please, can anyone help?

    I've tried more times than I can count...

    I have videos on my hard drive that I'd like to burn to a stand-alone DVD PLAYER. I can't seem to do it.

    My current project has me burning either
    A) a .mov that I exported from PowerPoint
    B) if not, then individual .wmv video clips to be played on a DVD PLAYER

    Here's what I've got: iDVD 6, iMovie 6, Visual Hub, DVD Creator, MPEG Streamclip, Burn by Sourceforge, ffmpegX, mac the ripper, VLC (and I tried iVCD but it wouldn't play in the DVD player...). Running a G4 10.4, using Memorex DVD-R for my PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-105. (I previously was using Sony DVD-RWs but they never seemed to work, either...)

    I'm not against buying a good piece of software if it in fact will do the job.


    EDIT: OK, I've gotten as close as creating an ISO file and burning it to a DVD through Disk Utility. It works on my mac, but not on my DVD player, though.

    Anyone have experience with this?

    I'm beginning to think it has something to do with the DVD players themselves. I have two older Toshibas: a 5-disk, and a TV/DVD combo. Both *claim* to play DVD-R. I have suspicions.

    I'll have to try on a newer DVD player.
