I recorded DVD-Video, but my DVD player cannot play it. What can I do?

If your DVD player supports MPEG2 format on data DVDs, you can use "DVD-Video"->"Convert and Burn" option. The program converts your video files into MPEG2 format and writes as data DVD (with ISO+UDF 1.02 file system). This type of DVD is compatible with most DVD players.
In case if your DVD player does not support data DVDs, you need to use DVD authoring software to prepare VIDEO_TS folder. This folder can be later recorded on DVD using "DVD-Video"->"Burn VIDEO_TS" option.

How do I finalize the disc after recording?

Insert a disc, launch the Data Disc compilation, click YES to import the previous session, tick "finalize disc" in the options and burn the disc.
