Just converting to MPEG-2 only makes the files compliant. You still
have to made them DVD readable. If you made a project in Movie Maker
AND have either the Ultimate or Home Premium versions then those
versions of Vista also comes with DVD Maker. That's what you need to
use or a third party application.
Stick one of the DVDs you made in your computer then look at it in
Windows Explorer. What does it show?
If it only shows files like any other folder all you've done probably
is make a data disc.
A proper DVD should have the following format:
The Audio folder should remain empty. The video folder will have many
files typically VTS and BUP. If not you didn't really "burn" the DVD.
