DVD player problem

Just bought this dvd player: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sanyo-DVD-SX25-Multi-region-capable-Player/dp/B000FO42RS/sr=8-2/qid=1169227096/ref=pd_ka_2/026-2385329-1882806?ie=UTF8&s=electronics

Ordered yesterday and it arrived this morning. As it says that it can play cd-r discs, I just burnt an episode of 24 onto a CD-R disc, popped into the player and it says 'Unknown disc.'

Tried an actual DVD and that worked. Tried another cd-r but still saying 'Unknown Disc.' I have finalized the burning for each disc but still not working.

Anyone know whats wrong?

Have you tried a burned DVD-R disc in your DVD player?
is the VCD burnt properly? does it work on some other players or anything?
Does sound like the CD-R's aren't being written to properly. Are the CD-R's showing as finalized when writing has finished?
Does the CDR play on your PC?
I thought dvd-rw disk would be best to burn onto I thought Cd-r's were really for music due to the space on them.
The thing I was doing wrong is that I was just normally burning the avi's to the CD.

I then found out that I had to make it a VCD or SVCD compilation via Nero. So I did that and it worked.

But looking for a DivX player now instead...the process of making it into a VCD or SCVD takes ages and the quality of the episode is quite poor.

Anyone know of any decent priced DivX players? Looking at this one atm: http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5335275/Trail/C%24cip%3D49550.Sound%2Band%2Bvision%3EC%24cip%3D49586.DVD%2Band%2Bvideo%3EC%24cip%3D49591.DVD%2Bplayers.htm
