Burning DVDs

Specs: Windows xp pro. SP2, P-4 2.4 GHz/ 512 ram
I'm trying to burn a DVD and when I go to play it in my DVD player it comes up unknown disc.
i have burnt a disc and there was no audio on it but it did play in my DVD player.
Also. If my device is open and I go into My Computer under Removable Storage Devices it says my device is a DVD-RW. When I close my device and close My Computer then re-open it, it says my device under Removable storage Device is a CD drive. Is this normal/ If not, what can I do to fix this, OR can I? Do I need a dual layer? All I'd like to do is burn a DVD and not have to throw out the disc because its un-usable.
Is it better to use DVD-RW OR DVD+ R to burn DVDs?

London ON.

when you burnt the DVD, did you finalize it? If not, that could be why it doesn't play in a standalone DVD player.

Also, is your DVD software set up for the correct region?

I personally use DVD+R discs, I find them more compatable with different players

If you want to burn videos to DVD, there is an easy way, you can try DVD Creator, it can create standard video DVD, it can directly convert and burn any videos to DVD(DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-DL, DVD+DL, etc), such as AVI to DVD, etc.

Work well on my computer, i like it, and i believe that once you try it, you will like it too. Following is a step by step guide:
Hope it can help you.
