This may be a long explanation, but I'll try to keep it quick.
Used Power Director 6.0 to edit kids' DisneyWorld footage (so it's very important that I get this to SOMETHING readable). I wasn't able to burn the DVD w/o getting error messages w/ Power Director. I managed to save it as an mpg2 file using Power Direcotr. However, I cannot burn that file to a data DVD and be able to read it. It burns fine, just can't read the DVD file on my computer.
Since that time, I have converted BACK from Vista to XP after dealing w/ Vista's misery for 6 months. I have deleted the captured footage from my HDD (still on tape though) b/c it was holding approx 40GB worth of valuable space.
I need to know if I can get it to a DVD (doesn't have to necessarily be stand-alone player readable), just computer DVD drive readable format. At this point, I will take it any way I can get it, I just want it off my drive so that I can reformat, start FRESH w/ XP and get my programs back to where they were.
If I have to buy another video editing program and start from scratch, I will be very disappointed. Please help, I have tried many trial programs (avi2divx, nero, etc) promising to turn my frown upside down to no avail.
PLEASE HELP!!! I don't know where else to turn!!!
