Your DVD player says it plays wmv and wma files?
Last I knew there weren't any DVD players out there accepting these
filetypes.

The real answer is to use a DVD authoring program to create a VCD.
Since you don't have a budget to spend on software do a google search for
"free dvd authoring program" and you will get quite a few hits but be warned
free usually means the program is riddled with adware, you get what you pay
for.
