Saving multiple movies


V

vinbomber

Hello, I'm a fairly new user of Windows Movie Maker and have encountered a
problem. I tried to make a movie of a son playing football in several games.
Everything went great until I tried to make the movie and burn it to a disk.
The "burning" would progress until I hit about the same percentage of the
file and then it would freeze.

I determined that the file size was too big for my computer. So I broke the
movie up into smaller pieces. That's where the next problem comes in.

I'm trying to make a DVD using a DVD-RW disk and would like to save several
movies on that disk. My question is how can I make that happen.

The format I made the movies allowed for my regular DVD player to play the
movies on my TV. It had the menu at the beginning with the option of playing
the movie or selecting a scene just like a regular DVD movie.

Is it possible to save multiple movies in that format on one DVD-RW disk and
then burn those multiple files on the DVD-RW?

I'm guessing you are running Vista?

Sounds like you are going directly from
Movie Maker to DVD Maker...if you wish
to add several projects to the same DVD...
try opening DVD Maker first and import
the assorted files.

See: "To add and arrange items on a
DVD" in the following article:

You may want to Publish (save) your Movie
Maker projects in a movie format so they can
be shared with others.
