I am new to this game. All I want to do is some basic video editing, adding captions, inserting images and adding a soundtrack. Then I want to burn a DVD to play in a standard player.
I have purchased a SONY AD-7173A DVD Writer (SONY AD-7173A DVD Writer Labelflash DVDRW FREE NERO on eBay, CD DVD Drives, Drives Storage, Computing (item 230159622800 end time 12-Aug-07 15:50:06 BST) Which looks to be pretty much all singing and all dancing. I have created a video in Intervideo Win DVD v 1.1. When I go to burn the DVD to a fujifilm DVD-R DVD I choose the VCD format and Pal for the TV system. When I tell it to burn I get the error message "The output format you chose is not compatible with the disc type" I have also tried burning with the SVCD format but same error message. I can quite happily send the video to the Hard drive for later burning but do not know how to burn it from there.
What am I doing wrong?
Can I do what I want with the software and hardware I have?
Is there a better (cheap) software I could use?
Also installed on the PC I have Nero7 and Windows Movie maker.
