Thread: Create and Edit DVD

  1. #1

    Default Create and Edit DVD

    I am sure that this is a stupid question and apologise in advance.
    I need to copy a DVD of a wedding onto my PC (Windows XP), edit it and burn it to a new DVD.
    I realise I need to purchase a DVD read/ writer as my computer at present only reads and writes CD's not DVD's
    Apart from that do I need to purchase any software? My computer has Windows Movie Maker but as far as I can see that supports lots of formats but I can't find DVD.
    I also have Nero Burning Rom 5.5 but again it does not seem to support DVDs
    If I do need software is there any free programme I can download that will do the job?
    Advice much appreciated.

    When you purchase you DVD drive, it will likely come with DVD burning software. Make sure you buy a 'retail' rather than an 'OEM' version for this to be true (OEM versions are for system builders and come with reduced packaging and free stuff like software).

    As for copying the disc to your PC and editing, well take a look at question 10 of the FAQ here: http://www.videoforums.co.uk/reviews/faq

    thats an excellent faq but is there a way I can print it out full page width without all the linky stuff at the sides. That way I won't need a magnifier to read it lol

    Thanks for the feedback peanut. Do you think the font size is too small?

    I've now added a print button at the top of the FAQ.

    It's been a while but I think the DVD options only 'wake up' when Nero recognises a DVD burner available. I'm sure v5 supported DVD writing.
