  1. Why was my standalone DVD player unable to play burnt disks due to area limitations ?

Please check which standard (PAL, NTSC or SECAM)  your original movie disc is and your standalone DVD player supports. We don't touch the conversion between them now, so the burnt disc still keeps the standard of the original disc. If the standard can not be supported by your standalone DVD player, you will get the "area limitations" notice.
