My grandma recieved a DVD-R of a slide show. It wont work in any DVD Player. It wouldnt work on her computer but that'c because she has an old computer and it wont read DVD's. SO I took it to my computer and converted it to a CD-R and it kinda works. But I was thinking, if it says DVD-R on it shouldnt it work in a DVD Player. I made a project on my own and was gonna convert it to a DVDR and give it to my dad for his birthday. But if I do convert it will it play in our home DVD player. Is it the program that make the project that's not compatible with the dvd player. The program on the DVD and my soon to be dvd project is Windows Media Player.

Not necessarely DVD does necesaraly mean that it works in a DVD player it's just another type of disc. Like a CD. The DVD-R that she received could be a DATA DVD that holds information and is meant for a computer...
