First thing is that you need to write it as a DVD-Video not as a data one, and there is no "track at once", so there won't be finalization problems...

Try Nero, if you don't have it already, it work's fine for me and my friends.

How to Burn MP4 to DVD?


It is not difficult actually.
If you're a Windows user, Windows Media Player will not be a stranger to you. It's the Window's defaulted media player which also provides the facility to burn CDs and data DVDs with your DVD burner drive. You can use Windows Media Player to copy music, pictures, and videos on your computer to a blank CD or DVD.

Apple actually offers several apps for its users to edit videos and burn videos to DVD on Mac, like iMovie, iDVD, Final Cut series, etc. iMovie and Final Cut series are used for video editing, while iDVD is a specialized video to DVD bunring program for all Mac computers.

While Windows Media Player only creates data DVD disc from MP4 files and iDVD may fail to recognize your MP4 video source, Leawo DVD Creator successfully avoids these shortcomings and becomes the best choice for you to burn MP4 to DVD on Mac and PC. officially known as Leawo Blu-ray Creator, you can easily convert and burn AVCHD to playable DVD disc for playback on your home Blu-ray Disc Player or PS3.
Here is the detailed tutorial on how to burn MP4 to DVD on Mac and PC with Leawo DVD Creator.

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

Dvd-audio cd burning issue


If you are burning a "Data Disc" (the burning software should tell you or have you select it) then music will NOT work on a CD-player. It will only work in another PC.

Data disc is for files, pictures, videos, music that you want other COMPUTERS to be able to read and play.

If you want a music CD to work in a car or something like that it NEEDS to be burned as a music disc, not data.

Hope that helps.

When i try to burn a video file onto a dvd disc it says at the end that theres not enough room on disk, i use nero ultra, and 4.7 gb 120 mins disks


The file must be bigger than 4.7gb!

Use Nero Vison to create a DVD video, it gives you the option to make it fit the discs you are using. It will do all the converting required to play the disc in a consumer DVD player.

Nero Vision provides step by step instructions on how to do it.

The problem you are having is the DVD player. Not all DVD players will play a burned DVD. Some set top DVD players are know for being very picky about what type of DVD's they will play, and Phillips is very bad about this.

If you have the owners manual for the DVD player, look inside and see what type of disc's are playable. if it should play them DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R. DVD+RW should all be listed.

Right now about 80% of DVD players do not play burned DVD's

In time they all will play them, but for some unknownn reason, some are still made without this ability.

Also, not all DVD-R's are created equal.

The best quality of DVD's to buy for burning are Taiyo Yuden. But Sony, memorex, and Maxell are also pretty good.

One way to be certain about the quality of the burned DVD's is to take one to a friends house or anybody you know who has a set top DVD player and see if it plays in their DVD player.

That will at least tell you if the DVD's you are burning are at fault or not. But my guess is that you r Phillips is the culprit here.

I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating would really be appreciated.

I have been buring DVD's since they started selling them for the PC. compatibility has been the only problem I have had.
My sony DVD player plays everything I throw at it.
