[I am assuming that the recorded disc was not made using the DVD recorder]. It's most likely that the video portion of the file is encoded in a format that is not supported by the DVD recorder. The player only supports DivX, JPEG, and MP3 formats. So try transferring the file on the disc to a computer and encoding in a supported format. You can use free online services such as http://media-convert.com/ or http://www.zamzar.com/ to encode media files into different formats.
