stupid dvd problem
Ok so I am trying to burn a movie on to a dvd with cyberlink power producer...on windows vista home premium anyway...the file is .mpg and it is 980MB
i am using a dvd+r 4.7 gb
anyway when i copy the video to power producer it says the file is over 7 gigs and too big for the disc.
Also i tried using windows dvd maker which i like for making titles and stuff but when i burn with it it gets to about .7% in like 15 or 20 mins and says windows closed to for data execution or something like that..This is very annoying, both of these problems.
can someone please help? thanks
oh ya and when i use the comp with xp power producer does the same thing but if i use ANY other program the video is choppy on a dvd player
anyway thanks if anyone can help.
Power Producer is a conversion tool. It will convert the mpeg file into a DVD Video that will play in any DVD player. Not only that but it's ****.
If you want to just burn the mpeg as an mpeg (will only play on PCs then) then just drag it onto your DVD drive in windows explorer.
If you're wanting to burn it so that it plays in any DVD player I suggest VSO ConvertXtoDVD. It's not a free program but it's absolutely brilliant, it's never let me down once. It'll can convert pretty much any video format to DVD with a few mouse clicks, definitely the best all in one converter. You can play around with the options to really customise things or run with the default settings.
Or Nero seeing as your not burning exotic formats which ConvertXtoDVD is needed for (or at least makes easier).
Try this free software.
Works well if you just want to burn a video to dvd.
actually convertxtodvd worked great i dragged two mp4 videos into it clicked convert and when i got home from work there was 2 working movies on the dvd lol thanks twelve.
thanks to everyone else who replied to.
Use Windows Media Center.
Add it to your video library, then pick the 'Burn' option for that video.
I've never got that to work. Hence the need for ConvertXtoDVD which has worked everytime for any video format, even .dvr-ms (media centre recordings).
