Burning to DVD from Windows Movie Maker... Yes I have searched thr



I am trying to burn a DVD of my home videos. I have captured the video using
Movie Maker 2 from my sony camcorder. I edit it and then save to computer
using "save to my computer" and "Other Settings" I select DV-AVI(NTSC). It
then says saving to computer.
When I open Nero Express to burn the DVD, I select "DVD-Video Files". It
then brings up a screen to add dvd-video files to the list. When I click
"Add" it then says "select files and folders", but nothing shows up. I
notice that at the bottom it says "file types" and lists .bup .vob .ifo. Of
course, mine aren't that type so if I click on my saved videos (after
selecting "all files") it then comes up with an error "No Compatable File
What am I doing wrong here. Am I missing a step somewhere? Very
frustrated. :(

I don't use nero, but you are following the wrong route. You need to be
authoring the dvd, so you import the dv-avi adn nero encodes it to the
neccessary vob files and tehn burns for you.
I've just opened up my copy of nero 7
Nero startsmart
select dvd
then photo and video
make your own dvd video
add video files

hopefully you can carry on from here.

That appears to work Graham!! I KNEW that I was probably just missing a
step... making it more complicated than it really should be.
Silly me :)

Thank You!!
