    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
    or
    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.

    Help!!!

    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.

    UPDATE:

    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.
