DVD-Rs have higher compatibility. Also use a good brand like Maxell.

Also, make sure you finalize the DVD.

I'm attempting to burn a video i created on windows movie maker to a DVD+R 4.7 GB/Go, 1-16x disc. I've attempted burning it straight from the option in windows movie maker, and now I just attempted to use...

If the DVD is unreadable by several devices then the DVD disk was burned wrong and is nothing more than you can do.
Assure that you have a region set on your DVD players and a certified DVD playback software on PC. Windows Media Player 10 should be enough if the disk is still unreadable will remain unreadable and ony speciall software with raw access will read it but this is not a solution for you.
I use Nero 7 for burning CDs and DVDs and never had a problem. Maybe when you burned the DVD you set a wrong regional code or you choosed a wrong DVD format that is unknown to your DVD players.

DVD+RW Formats

What Operating System do you have?
What you need is a DVD authoring program. You have a plethora of programs for Linux (K3b, DVDAuthor...) and for Windows, it depends on the Version (XP: Windows Movie Maker, Vista: Windows DVD Maker).
Just open the concerned program, create a new project, add your movie and burn your DVD!

in order for you dvd play to recognize them they have to be coded right and to make photos coded write you need to use a program that makes them into a movie and easy one to use is windows movie maker. and then you can code it to a dvd from another program just look for an dvd burner program and it will most likely code it for you after asking a couple of nessesary questions. hope this helps
