Short of exporting your Director file to video and encoding it for DVD,
you can't. Perhaps you're confused about Director's ability to interact
with and control a DVD video disc in the drive of a computer.
Director is *not* compatible with consumer set-top DVD players.
Director movies can not be played on a DVD player. You need DVD
authoring software to make video that plays on a DVD player.
Director movies require either the Windows or Mac operating system,
along with on of the various flavors of the Director player.

Another point of confusion for some people is the fact that Director
movies can be stored on a DVD data disc, which of course is an entirely
different format than a DVD video disk.
A big new feature of MX (?) was Director's ability to use the DVD video format (i.e. that flavor of MPEG2). That triggered a lot of confusion. It's a neat feature of course. For a TV production facility it's great to use the same files for distribution on domestic DVD discs and computer discs; not having to render to two different formats. I have some discs with Adobe tutorials made by Total training which use the DVD format (more correctly MPEG2!) wrapped in a Director made interface, and it works really well. It loads additional up to date Html content on the fly etc.
