what media should I use....

I am trying to create a movie of my son who has just turned 1. I have a sony
DVD player which accepts all DVD burned formats. The problem I am getting,
is that I cannot seem to find a DVD to burn to.

I have tried both DVD+R as well as DVD-RW. Neither seem to be working
correctly.

The sony player I have in my home works with DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R
DL, DVD-R.

On my computer's drive I have 3 icons which read "compact disc rewritable
high speed", "RW DVD+Rewritable", "DVD R/RW".

So far I am frustrated. I have used CD_R's as well, and even though it says
it has burned to the disc, I cannot play it in my DVD player. What can I do?

The main reason I bought this software was so that I could transfer my
digital video into a format I could play in personal home DVD players.

Someone please help me. I have burned audio cds in the past, and am
familiar with being sure I haven't over used disc space, and I have created
the video easily with little trouble. I just can't burn the damn thing
successfull, and it is getting expensive trying. $18.00 for a five pack of
DVD-RWs that didn't fix my problem!?
