I am burning photos from my imac with a USB superdrive from Apple and my disks won't play on my DVD saying the playback feature is not available on my disk. It is a DVD-R. I used this with my old Dell computer and they always worked. What can I do?

Im not a Mac user.

The discs won't play back on the computer? or a standalone DVD player connected to a TV?

Assuming that brand/type of discs has worked previously on the standalone DVD player, I'd suspect the problem is the format of the discs. For example, on a Windows PC when burning a disc, there are several options such as data, video, etc. Standalone DVD players should play video format discs, and those that support images or video files, usually have no problems with a data disc. Having said that, Windows and Mac use different file system formats, which may be causing the problem you are seeing. I don't know if that affects CD and DVD discs or not.
