Thread: Burn CD for DVD Player

  1. Default Burn CD for DVD Player

    Just finished my first movie using Windows Movie Maker, but cant seem to burn it to CD in a format suitable for a domestic DVD player.

    When I opt for Save to CD in the Finish Movie option it reports that a Recordable CD drive not detected.

    When I saved to disk and then burn a CD using Nero the CD does not play in my DVD player.

    Any suggests please, or do I need to move away from Windows Movie Maker.

    Graham.

    I think it is probably more likely that your DVD Player does not support the VCD format.

    You can check compatibility at

    Good Luck

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc

  3. Default Samsung P140 It seems No for VCD

    Can I play this VCD on my PC?

    The I generated the CD on runs it via Windows Media Player, but on a Windows 2000 PC, I cant find anything to play this VCD.

    I feel I should get a DVD writer soon.

    Any suggestions?

    Note I burn the VCD via Nero Express and opted for Video files. I started with a large 2G .avi file generated by Windows Movie Maker and ended up with a 98 Mb collections of files on the VCD.

    Anyone got an overview of video files types and there use.

    AFAIK, Windows Movie Maker doesn't output MPEG. Therefore you won't be able to output a disc playable in most DVD standalone players directly from Windows Movie Maker. You will need to output your video to DV AVI in WMM, then use this to author a DVD or VCD.

  5. Default Can Samsung P140 Play VCDs

    I completed my first movie (in Windows Movie Maker) and burnt it to a VCD via Nero Express. Did not play on my Samsung P140 DVD player

    I then converted a .WMV file to .MPEG and burnt another CD, still did not play.

    Do I need to get a DVD writer?
