I recently purchased an HP Media Center PC, (it's a monster; I love it). One of the selling points for me was the ability to make DVDs from old VHS or 35mm tapes. The HP machine came with this software already loaded.
I created a really awesome movie, complete with text and effects, etc, (output from my 35mm camcorder), but, I'm having the following problems.
1. With recordable media: It doesn't recognize a DVD-RW as recordable media, but, exported just fine to DVD-R.
2. With the end-result: I got the movie onto a disk which plays just fine on my computer, but, NOT in my DVD player that's part of our home theater.
I'm using version 2.0, and following all the instructions that I can find... "Create / Write a DVD". Maybe I'm not selecting the correct "Video Format" from the drop-down menu? - I've been choosing "DVD File". What the heck do these other choices even mean? (Sorry, I'm a total newbie, LOL)... "DV File"; "SVCD File" ?
Any light you can shed would be so greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
