To elaborate on what tg1911 asked, not all dvd players will recognize a CDR as a movie. In other words, not all CDR's will play in all dvd players.
If I were you, and I wanted to convert my movies to play in a dvd player, I'd convert them into .VOB format, VIDEO_TS folders. They play in every dvd player man has made. You have a 50/50% chance of CDR's playing in dvd players.
So.. to sum it up... convert your movies into .VOB/VIDEO_TS format. They'll play in every player you put them in.
Also, on CDR's,, depending on how long the movie is, you'll have to use 2 cd's just to watch that one movie.
On another note:.... if you want to watch them on your player and you don't want he hassle of converting, invest approximately $40+ and go get a dvd player that has a DivX logo on the box. They're also known as DivX players. I have 6 movies or so on one 4.7G dvd, and I don't have to convert at all. All I do is fit as many .AVI, .MPG, (and others) files as I can on disc..... then slap it in my player,,, and watch it on my tv... all withing 30 mins or less.
Get a DivX player. They're well worth it. Plus they play what you already own on discs. Everything.
I have hundreds of conversions under my belt, so trust me on it,, if I knew what I know now... I would have never converted any movie at all. But now... I'm in 2 deep.
