Not much to go on here but my guess is you are burning a data disc - ie you have burned an mp4 file to the DVD. Try setting it to burn as video CD or DVD format. Nero for example has options for this.

Other options :
1) Some writable DVDs need to be finalised before they can be played on a standalone player.
2) Not all DVD players support writable DVDs (unlikely)

Probably as said to check explore the disc it should have a video ts folder if not
Suggest you use dvd flick its free and will convert and author to a proper dvd

Dvd flick should not just hang methinks you have another problem any road this will convert your mp 4 to dvd vobs but you will still need to author and burn click here when you open thesite choose download from mirror and with Super you drag and drop the file .
Back to flick hangs at 98% what burning or converting and authoring

dvd flick hangs at 98% when trying to add title

  eedcam 18:17 23 Dec 2010

Why add a title ?

  polish 18:18 23 Dec 2010

iam following instruction on cdxp website

  eedcam 18:21 23 Dec 2010

sorry meant adding title is adding the file which process is it going through when it hangs or are you saying it hangs whilst you are waiting for the title (file) to load

it starts quickly but hangs even when left for a couple of hours
