I don't think that you can make a film loop with DVD's.

Re: film loop

I'm not a pc user either, but I did run an
installation/curated film program a while ago that
required film/video from different dvd's and tapes.
The easiest way is as the below poster said. Compile
the videos into one quicktime/wmv/mpeg2 file with
accompanying audio or embedded audio, insert this into
one track in a dvd authoring program, and assign that
track to jump to chapter one of that same track
(called end jump is dvd studio pro). The dvd should
therefore repeat infinitely until your player is shut
