    The person you have created the DVD for may have an older player which is more fussy when playing recordable DVD's.

    In most cases burning the DVD at a slower speed i.e. 2x will solve the problem.

    You could also try burning +r or -r DVD's to see if a particular format of DVD is more compatible.

    THere are also some good and not so good DVD's. In some cases it's a case of buy and try and may take a bit of testing to find a decent recordable DVD. However try burning at a slower speed. This should hopefully solve your problem.

    Yes, ripping the MPEG-2 file onto the PC and then burning to another DVD should work. I would suggest trying the origional DVD on your system first though just to check that it is playable. If you get the same problems as your friend then you may well need to start again from scratch as that would indicate that there is a problem with the files on the disc.
    I would aslo suggest trying the MPEG conversion within MovieFactory to see if that give better PQ as some encoders are better than others. Of course to do this you will need a fair bit of spare disc space as you will end up with another AVI file.
