A long ago post, but this still deserves an answer.

To begin with... unless you are making a data dvd, the files will not burn to a disk unless they are coded into dvd format. This is where dvd authoring software is required, such as nero. First your files must be coded to dvd format and usually saved to your computer. From there you can burn the newly encoded file to dvd.
