Shows unkown disc when i put in a burned dvd-r but it will play a store boughten disc what disc format is compadible with yhis unit

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

Where to find a CD-R longer than 80 minutea and way to burn it

You can't, that is the maximum for a CD-R or a CD+R = approx 700Mb capacity.
DVD-R and DVD+R have a capacity of 4.5Gb
Depending upon the type of data files you want to burn, there are compression techniques you and apply and then burn them to a CD.
For example you can convert CDs to mp3 music files and burn them onto a CD-+R disk. You can fit 12 to 16 CDs albums in mp3 format on a single CD-+R disc, but your CD player needs to be a MP3 player to play these music files.

I Have a Memorex MVD 2047 DVD Player thats supposed to read DVD RW disks but it doesnt read them help?

Like you said the unit is capable of playing DVD RW and DVD-RW. However, some discs may not be compatible due to format of the files on the discs, software used and laser pickup. Some technologies used to record on discs can prevent optimal playback of the files by changing them which affects the ability of the player to read the file.<br /><br />If you are burning the discs, I would suggest you different software, make sure the video/audio files are being converted to a DVD format that can be played on stand alone players. <!-- from fixya rte -->

Lg cd/dvd rw will not play or record. but will play mp-3

It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.

You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.
