Can discs I create with a DVD recorder play on a regular DVD player?
Most DVD players can read recordable discs you create. However, a few brands do have trouble reading either the +R or -R formats. Most can read both without a problem, though.

If you record video onto a re-writable disc, you'll need to "close" the disc, (make it unable to be recorded on again) in order to play it in most DVD players. Some newer players can read open rewritable discs. These units allow you to continue to add video to a rewritable disc while still being able to watch it on your TV.

One thing to watch for is disc branding. Some brands of discs (even from the same format) are read more easily by some players. You may need to try a few brands and types to get best results.
