PC compatibe DVD?

I recently used iPhoto5 and iDVD5 to create a DVD slideshow for a friend of mine. In iDVD I first created a disk image then using Disk Utility created the final DVD. I sent it to a friend of mine who said he was not able to read the disc on his PC. He was however able to play the slideshow on his DVD player. Is there any reason the disc I created was not compatible with a PC, and if so, is there something I can do about it? I'm using an iMac and OS X 10.4.3. Thanks. rick

What kind of media did you use? How old is his DVD player? Older DVD players have problems with home-burned disks (as do very inexpensive players). Also, some media work better than others in different players.

How embarassing it is to me to finally realize the answer to this question. My friend with the PC had an older computer that can only read CD's NOT DVD's. So thats why he couldn't read what I sent him. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
