It should be NTSC Not NTFS

we us PAL in the UK.

Why it does not play probably depends on the type of DVD being used -R , +R or RW versions. Some players only play one or the other. There are a few other reasons like region (should not be a problem with home created though). Most of the later DVD players play most formats.

If you include the type of DVD and players you are trying to use I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than me will be able to sort may have to load it to a pc and create another DVD in the required format.

Not sure if you mean you created the DVD on your PC, or on a DVD player. If you created the dvd on a player, it will only play on that player unless you "finalise" it.
Check if this was set to happen. If not, set it to finalise, then burn it again.
