Apologies in advance if this (or these ) question(s) has been asked already.
I am a proficient PC user but completely inexperienced in the ways and means of DVD/C camcorder - copy, edit and burn.
A buddy has asked me to assist her in doing this (i.e. uploading from a camcorder, editing - both video and photos (into a slideshow which can be viwed on a TV - this is possible I believe) and then burning to a dvd which can be viewed on TV via a regular DVD player - She resides overseas and wishes to keep her family up todate on the developments of her children - as her parents are elderly TV based DVD is the soel means of viewing.
Can anyone help me/us please.. Is windows moviemaker any use? I have tried it but am unable to even open the uploaded DVD which had an equally unfamilair file extension - one Windows MEdia player is unable to open/read.
Can anyoen recommend a simple software package to buy which will allow me to do this ... Relatively cheap - possible trial ware... My friend is not particularly IT in-tune -
Hope this lays out the ground work ... Any, any, any help greatly appreciated ..... REgards Nisio
