Burned two DVD's with the following settings, etc., both will play on my computer using Windows Media Player, but not on either of our DVD players (different make and models).  The error message received during each test is exactly the same.    

Disc Error (in a red block background)

--- please eject the disc ---

Playback feature may not be available on this disc.

End.

I use Windows XP Pro; and Roxio 9 Creator
I drag and drop the mpeg files; then finalize.   As noted, each movie file will play on my computer, but not the DVD players.

Test 1
-R DVD disc, burned on Memorex DVD burner

Test 2
+DVD disc, burned on an external Beyond Micro DVD burner.

What might I be doing wrong?  

Thank you.

You cannot drag and drop anything to optical media and expect it to play in a DVD Player.

You have to author the disc if it is an mpg file. Even then, not all Player will know what to do with it! That would be using Creator Classic set to UDF, No Bridge and Read Only.

Plan B is to use the mpg files in MyDVD and make yourself a real DVD Movie in the proper format.

The reason most players don't know what to do with it, it's not based on UDF
Revision 1.02 (August 30, 1996). This format is used by DVD-Video discs.

Why plan 'B' works!

DVD-Video media use UDF version 1.02. These discs contain a so-called UDF Bridge format, whereby both an ISO 9660 (Level 1) and a UDF 1.02 filesystem are present on the same disc, describing the same filesystem. The way Roxio EMC 9 DVD Video author programs, MyDVD and Disc Copier author and burn the DVD Video to a disc.


The bought commercially pressed DVD Video below, identified in IsoBuster Pro 2.3 shows both ISO and UDF file structure conforming to the UDF 1.02 Revision used by DVD-Video discs.

Revisions of UDF
UDF has been released in multiple revisions:

Revision 1.02 (August 30, 1996). This format is used by DVD-Video discs.

Revision 1.50 (February 4, 1997). Added support for (virtual) rewritability on CD-R/DVD-R media by introducing the VAT structure. Added sparing tables for defect management on rewritable media such as CD-RW, and DVD-RW and DVD+RW.
Revision 2.00 (April 3rd, 1998). Added support for Stream Files and real-time files (for DVD recording) and simplified directory management. VAT support was extended.
Revision 2.01 (March 15, 2000) is mainly a bugfix release to UDF 2.00. Many of the UDF standard's ambiguities were resolved in version 2.01.
Revision 2.50 (April 30, 2003). Added the Metadata Partition facilitating metadata clustering, easier crash recovery and optional duplication of file system information: All metadata like nodes and directory contents are written on a separate partition which can optionally be mirrored.
Revision 2.60 (March 1, 2005). Added Pseudo OverWrite method for drives supporting pseudo overwrite capability on sequentially recordable media.
For next releases of UDF, changes are discussed in relation to using UDF on very large hard disk media, and using UDF on holographic storage media.
