My player will play anything I burn (video, JPG, etc) but will not play movie dvd's that we purchased. We have tried about 20 of them older and new and it sticks on load for awhile then goes to unknown disc. Also, we can no longer play anything on video 1 but must use video too.

I looked up your DVD player's model number online. It is not equiped to read picture files (.jpg, .bmp, etc.) You have to be carefull when you transfer pictures to a DVD on your computer. If you just burn them to the disc, most DVD players wont be able to read the information. Frequently you have to use a program like Microsoft Movie Maker to get them in the right format.
You may have to start over and use a DVD making program to make them a video and not just picture files.
Are you trying to play a burned DVD or a purchased/rented DVD? If so, the movie files will be in a different format. (e.g. .avi or .mpg versus VOB files). Some dvd players will play burned dvds, the key is to look the acronym DIVX. This ensures that the dvd player will play .avi and .mpg files.
It looks to me like a DVD file... What I mean by a DVD file is its come from a DVD disc you might have used on your PC and it can be anything like a text file, a language pack, a picture file itself but certainly not a video.
When Video DVDs are burnt, there are multiple files other than the video itself that show the movie menu screen on a DVD player such as "Play Movie", "Behind the scenes" etc. or a pack of different languages for a movie or something else. Such files mostly have a name that starts with VTS.
Are you using DVD+R or DVD-R to burn the movies to? DVD+R is what you want to burn movies to for best quality and DVD-Rs are for like pictures and documents etc (even though you can also burn those to a DVD+R). Secondly, most movies that burn are played back in MP3 format, make sure your dvd playing is capable of playing MP3s.
What exactally do you mean by you bought 2 different types of blank videos?
It could be the codec u use to encode the movie,
secondly could be a firm ware problem of your dvd player.
Other than this I can't think of any other reason. or just may be the type of recoreder u use or the recoding programe. If u had check these, then get another player
Sorry, this is all I can think of.
PS. the player firmware is the main reason to me.
I always use Aimersoft DVD Creator, it can easily convert all popular video formats (AVI, MP4, MPG, MPEG, 3GP, WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB, DAT, MOV, FLV, etc) to DVD and burn DVD movie played on portable and home DVD players, that's very good, you can check it out here for free: http://www.aimersoft.com/dvd-creator.html
