What am I doing wrong? If anything....

Post by R2xlbm4wN » Thu, 08 Mar 2007 04:02:05



I recently finished a "movie" complete with music track. Bravo. Trouble is
the cd that I copied to will only play on my pc (Windows XP program) not in
my dvd player that I use in the living room. Do I need to record on a
different type of cd to resolve this or is it the setting that I choose when
I copied it? Could it be the dvd is not set up for that. BTW...dvd is Kodak
picture assesible, will show pics on a cd but not with a music trak. Help me
if you can....Director in the making...thanks.

Most DVD players can only play DVDs, not CDs.You need to burn to DVD-R,
DVD+R, DVD/RW, or DVD+RW, depending on which your TV's DVD player can handle
using DVD-Authoring software (not the "to CD" location in Movie Maker).

=============================
To play a movie on a DVD player...you
need software that can create a VCD...
(this assumes you do not have a DVD
burner...then you might create a DVD)

First you would save your Movie Maker
project to a folder on your hard drive as
a movie...

To save as a .wmv movie file...
Type...Ctrl+P to open the Save Movie Wizard /
Choose...My Computer /
Next /
Enter a Name and a Save Location /
Next / Next.
Wait while the movie is saved /
Finish...

To save as an .avi movie file...
Type...Ctrl+P to open the Save Movie Wizard /
Choose...My Computer /
Next /
Enter a Name and a Save Location /
Next /
Show More Choices /
Other Settings /
Open the drop window and choose...DV-AVI /
Next /
Wait while the movie is saved /
Finish...

Next...you need to import the completed
.wmv or .avi movie file into a software
program that will create a VCD. Most
DVD players will play a VCD...check
the manual for your DVD player for
compatibility. A VCD is a Video Disk
created on a CD instead of a DVD.

I've had success with a program called
'InterVideo WinDVD Creator'...there are
many others...'NeroVision Express'...is
another example. The main thing is the
program must be able to create a VCD
from a .wmv or .avi video file.
