Mahesh, welcome to Tom's Hardware Forum!

When you burn a DVD or a CD, you will be asked to pick one of two choices. It will ask you whether you want to use it as a 'flash drive' (not sure about the exact terminology, OR whether you want to play it on a DVD player.

Select the option for playing on the DVD player. Then proceed with instructions and burn. This DVD will only play on a DVD player, not on a computer.

Th 'flash drive' option will only work on a computer, and not on a DVD player.

The two are different.

I use Win 7 to burn DVDs and I burn both types.

You need software such as imageburn that has a write video mode, otherwise you are just copying files over like a standard data disk.

Most decent burning software will have different modes of writing, audio (CD), video (DVD/blu ray), and data (storage).
