    Does it play in your Computer..??
    Also - R Disks are for older DVD Players...like 7 years ago...if yours is a few years old...it just might not read - Rs..unless you bought one with alot of extras like I did.

    Also, you didn't just burn the Image did you..?? cause that wont work...it needs to be converted by a program like Nero or Alcohol or any other DVD Burning Program.

    open the image with DVD Shrink, If DVD Shrink can read it, the image is ok

    No you don't need -RWs unless you want to re-write them.
    If it playes in your Computer than Nero Converted the IMG to VOB with the MPEG Plugin...if it wont play in your Home DVD Player..it could be because it is PAL or NTSF...(Depending on the Country you live)
    My DVD Player plays both...some don't...you might try it in a friends DVD Player & see if it will work.

    I have a 4 year old sanyo dvd player that won't play dvd-r's.

    I have burnt a few dvds to dvd+r they play on my Sanyo.

    If you have burnt the dvd correctly,

    yes it could be your DVD player.
