Is it possible to burn MP3 to a DVD to play on a DVD player? It's about 20 or so 30 to 40 minutes podcast episodes.

You can definitely put mp3 files onto a DVD disc, but I'm not sure whether such a disc can be mastered in a format that your DVD player can handle or whether the files would just end up being stored as a data disc. Can the dvd player you wish to play these mp3 files on play CD discs, it is much easier to write mp3 files to them and master them (often modern devices capable of playing CD discs can handle data discs full of mp3 files too as well as properly mastered ones). The length is no problem at all, a DVD can store vastly more data than 13 hours of audio.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My particular problem is I have only a limited amount of CD disks, and I'm swimming in DVD disks. This is for my very elderly landlord. He does have both a CD player and a DVD player, and of the two the DVD player is much more accessible. So why not burn them as raw data MP3s on one DVD, and format others as a CD on another DVD?

There's no reason why you can't put the MP3 files onto DVD, just as a data disk, it will depend on the capability of the DVD player whether it can play them. If the particular DVD is a multimedia player with MP3 capability via a USB socket to play from USB flash drives or portable HDD, it will almost certainly play the MP3s from DVD. A standard DVD player, not so sure, you just have to try it.

Unless the DVD player is ancient (in technological terms) it's almost certain that it can play MP3 files burned to DVD as a data disc.

 

My el-cheapo DVD player that's 10 years old (at least) is capable of playing CDs, MP3s, and a couple of other media formats I've never had the occasion to use.
