    Finalising is only necessary when recording on set top boxes. Unfortunately discs will not play on all players, older ones especially may not accept home made DVD-Rs.

    DVD-Rs (whether made on a PC or on a standalone), just like CD-Rs, need to be finalised before used on a player. When you burnt the disk did you check the 'finalise disk' option. If not put the disk back in and tick the finalise option.
