Are you trying to copy the video to a DVD disc as a "data file" or are you trying to copy the video to the DVD as a "video" that you will be trying to use in DVD players?

I want to copy my videos and put on a DVD so my son in Afghanistan can view them via his computer or DVD player.

use the DeVeDe program in the repository to make the image file. Then use
Brasero to burn the image to the DVD.
