DVD not exiting on stop

Hi there.
I have been trying to create a DVD to sell as a resource on our website - it needs to be a good quality product.

I have generated a Dual Layer DVD that works just fine - menus, programs, everything. When I hit stop, however, it does not exit to the DVD player's home screen, I get the file browser built into the DVD player displaying the file structure of the DVD.

This never happens with any commercial DVD I play, and as a good portion of my audience is populated by older "less tech-savvy' people, I am concerned that I will get complaints and returned product.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

I have actually tried a few DVD authoring programs with the same result, I know it is not just PowerDirector, but I really need a solution to this - the side project has gone on for months and I need a finished product.

Have you tried other DVD players?

This issue sounds like it's unique to this particular player.

It might actually be the remote.
There are thousands of different remotes and they behave differently too.
Try a different button on the remote, try a different DVD player. My website http://bgillcyberstudio.com/index.html LINKS TO PDTOOTS & hundreds of other valuable resources!

I did try another DVD player, just now, and it did stop as expected.

Regardless, the authored DVD does behave differently in my player than commercial DVDs do. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on why and how it can be fixed.

Thank you for the reply, Barry

It does behave the same if I press the stop button on the player, or use our Logitech universal remote. As I mentioned in my other response my concern is the authored DVD does behave differently to commercial DVDs in my player. I was just wondering if there were any clues to why and how I can fix it.

I don't mind delving into the DVD architecture to find the fix if necessary, I just need to know where to look.
