Solved Any DVD I create plays only on the computer.

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, 3 GHz / 1919 MB

I create a DVD from mp4 digital downloads. They play on the computer but not on a stand alone DVD player. The DVD I do create, contain two folders named Audio_TS and Video_TS. Only the Video_TS contains any data, the Audio_TS folder is empty. Some of the digital videos are in two parts. I edit them a bit and then join them together before burning them. I suspect I need some kind of autorun scripts installed also that will start the DVD automatically.
Will anybody recommend, preferably. a freeware program that will do the job?
Incidentally, I am burnig to DVD+RW disks

Often DVD+RW and DVD-RW disks will not to play on a stand alone DVD player.
Try burning them to DVD+R or DVD-R instead.

Check the DVD player owner's manual to find the types of disks
it will play. The manual for a low-price unit I've seen lists more
disk types that it *won't* play than types it *will* play.

Re #3
The poster is asking about mp4's (Video) not mp3's (audio). There is also mention of a Video_TS folder and a Audio_TS folder which is standard Video structure. The requirement was to play these videos on a stand alone DVD player.

As you probably know, it is not that unusual to have an empty Audio_TS folder - the sound runs directly from the video.

Could you also elaborate on what happens when you try to play it, IE. does it try to load the disc, does it play but distorted, etc?
