Hi, Leo, yes, WMV is not a compatible video with DVD player or TV in most cases. Burn WMV to DVD is a good choice and can also be easily achieved with this program. But Mike's problem can also be that the created DVD from WMV files encountered playback problem. To avoid this, it's advisable to insert a suitable DVD disc fit for your DVD before burning. Generally, DVD-R is compatible with most DVD players or TV nowadays. For more knowledge about DVD disc, please check this tutorial. Best regards,
