Hello, I am very new to making home movies so suggestions in basic terms would be helpful.
I am desperately trying to burn DVD's of my childrens birthdays/family gatherings and holidays, I have a mini-dv camcorder and I use a firewire to download footage onto my computer.
I then use Windows DVD Maker to burn the footage onto DVD's.
Whilst the burning process takes place the dvd gets spat out with only 99% completion and an error message and when I try and watch the dvd it is very juddery and poor and keeps freezing up.
The footage is saved as a WMV file on the computer, the discs I am using are Philips DVD-R 4.7 GB.
My computer has 48.5 gb of 76.3 gb of memory, it is 511mb RAM and is a 32-bit Operating system (Windows Vista Home Premium).
I have been given all sorts of advice from "not enough memory" to "Vista and Windows DVD Maker are rubbish". All I want is to learn the basics first and then maybe progress onto better software when I can.
PLEASE PLEASE Can you help me!
