    I "successfully" burned a DVD using my G4's burner and iDVD from Apple/Mac. I could play the DVD successfully from that computer, as well as on a laptop. But when I took the DVD home and attempted to play it in my stand alone Panasonic player, it wouldn't work. I could get to the menu I created, but the video wouldn't play. Finally, the player was tired of me screwing around with it, and said the DVD disk was unreadable.

    I have tested this on several other brands of stand alone players to no avail.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? My boss is all over my @$$ to get our DVD burner up and working correctly.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Ryan

    What did you burn it with?

    And it's Mac. Not MAC. MAC is an acronym, Mac is an abbreviation.

    What? It's annoying. People always write MAC.

    It's like saying I use WINDOWS.
