Wont start the movie
With the large variety of video formats available nowadays it's difficult to find a unit that plays them all. Chances are you want to play a movie you burned yourself, and though it plays on your PC, it will not play on the DVD player.
Try playing the disc on your PC, and then try different DVD units, perhaps pretending you're shopping for one and want to try your own movie. Chances are these new units may NOT play it either, perhaps because you're using DivX or Xvid two video format contenders on the PC because their codecs offer great compression and very good quality (small file size and even HD video).
If it works on your PC it's because you may have the latests codecs (codifier / decodifier) installed, since some of them may have installed themselves as plugins for your browser, or come as part of a DVD viewing program you may have installed, like WinDVD.
For the time being, watch the DVD on your PC and upgrade your player, if it's more than 2 yrs. old.
