If you want it to be a DVD, you either have to covert it to MPEG then use software to split it into VOB files or just use a software that takes ANYTHING and converts it and burns it to DVD. | Report abuse Reply to nukemaster Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Why can\'t I play a DVD that I burned on my laptop in a DVD player?> Related ressources: ForumWhy can\'t I play a DVD that I burned on my laptop in a DVD player ?
