Hi!  I have created a photo slideshow and burned it to a dvd-r, which completed successfully.  I tried to put the dvd in my dvd player to watch on the tv and received a disc error message.  I haved tried to repeat this process a few different times and on different dvd's, but nothing seems to work.  Help!!!  I have used the same brand of dvd that I have in the past with different software so I don't understand why it wont work.

Please expand on " I have created a photo slideshow and burned it to a dvd-r". What program from the C2011 suite did your use to do your project? You have given no information other then "It doesn't work"

I used Roxio creator 2011 and created the slideshow and burned it using mydvd.  The disc will play on the computer and on a portable dvd player, but not on my RCA dvd player (hooked up to the tv).  I know that the disc burned successfully since it does play on some players, but I would like to be able to watch it on the tv.  I also wanted to send copies to family, but I'm afraid they wont be able to view it either.

Many high priced DVD players have difficulty with playing home burned DVDs.  There is no way around that.  Take it to a big box store and try it on a couple to see if it plays.  Good sales now on blu-ray also.

Try using a +R DVD rather than a -R or vice versa.  Some will play one format rather than the other.  There is no way around that either.  -R seems to be more universally playable but no guarantee.

When you said it played on other players, did you mean the portable one or did you take it somewhere else?
