Your other devices do not read dual-layer DVDs. Dual-layer DVDs are great for storing the contents of DVD-9 movies that you rip from the original DVD to the hard drive and then burn to the dual-layer DVD, but home DVD players are not designed to read dual-layer DVDs. Generally, to fit a motion picture that is on a store-bought DVD onto a DVD-5 disk, you need to rip it and convert it from DVD-9 format to DVD-5 format, then burn it to an ordinary recordable DVD (which can then be watched on a home DVD player).

You burned it as a data dvd. You would need burning software like Nero that will convert the video into dvd format that your player will recognize.
