Simple. Your player doesn't support playing MP4 files. When you burn an MP4 all you're doing is creating a data data disc with an MP4 on or. You'll need to convert that MP4 to an actual DVD structure.

Yeah, if your DVD player doesn't support MP4 container playback, it will return it cannot read that file.  As Ch3vron said, you will need to either convert to a VIDEO_TS structure for DVD playback or use some converter software to convert the MP4 into a different container file that your player supports.  If your player even supports any container file playback.  Older ones don't and not even all newer ones do.  For instance, in wasn't until I got a Playstation 3 in 2011 that I had a "DVD player" that supported things like AVI, MP4, MP3, etc.
