I don't know if you mean a DVD Recorder that records from the TV channels & Sky. Or you are trying to download movies and burn them to watch on your DVD player. If it is the second thing you are trying, first you have to convert the format to something that your DVD Player can understand. You can't just write a data disc and expect your DVD Player to play it. You need a DVD Rewriter to burn it onto a DVD RW-Disc. And you can use Nero to do the task. Hope this helps.
