Burn it as DVD, not Video CD or other formats. Use DVD +R's or DVD -R's from well known brands. Use a low burning speed.

Actually, stick to burning on DVD-R media.  It has the HIGHEST compatibility.  THEN DVD+R, then DVD-RW, and lastly DVD+RW.  Other than that, stick with rindi's recommendations regarding brands and burning speeds.

I've been burning lot´s of DVD+R's and so far so good, not a single one has "burned out", and it's pretty viewable on almost any Home Players.

As for disc brands, I've been using TDK, Memorex and recently, Samsung.

I've been burning at 4x.

Best Regards !
