Yes. If your laptop has an "optical drive", or DVD drive, it would normally have come with DVD player software so that you can watch DVD movies you own or rent. The procedures to make a DVD are in the output menu. You should be able to make a standard DVD that will play.
If this is not working, I suspect you are making wrong choices in the output procedures. Can you list what you are doing and provide screen shots?
I am doing a project at school and we need to be able to burn DVD's in NTSC which out put should we use?
