Saving MM to DVD, copying DVD show to another DVD, it Can be done

Having worked 6 months trying to make a DVD slide show with music and 100
slides using WMM, I at last was ready to make my first DVD via USB DVD burner.
Unless you have a Full Blown off the shelf "I paid big $$$ for this
program", chances are yoou will have problems.
WHY? The various makers/marketers of programs that are included with the
purchase of a computer, are stripped down, lacking full features of the off
the shelf versions.
If you have a version of Nero or Jazz or Peanuts that came with your
computer and the computer is a DVD/CDRW, having no DVD burtning functions,
chances are very good you have no DVD burning options in the 'free'
strippeddown program. Meaning you have to upgrade your program to burn a
DVD,say, via a USB burner.
Now the good news may be that your DVDBurner came with a program. If so
check it out FULLY to be sure it will do everything you want. I was lucky.
Sonic was included with my USB DVD burner, very basic but enough to do the
job burning my completed slide show with music and transitions, to a DVD RW
disc that played on a set top box to TV.
Said Sonic also had an option for "Exact Copy" which then allowed me to copy
a fully readable DVD show disc to another disc, etc. for distribution to
family and friends.
I have found no incompatibility with different mfg, this scenario simply
recorded.
SO THERE IS HOPE.
Its often a long @)(#*$)(#@*$ way to Tipparary it seems.
Time and patience becomes short.
