whomever is to reply Mr Matthew, kindly consider replying this one too.
I bought a JVC evario 20 GB hard disc digital cam coder and along with that i recd one power plus gold softwr to help make movies.
being a volunteer , i wanted to help our orgnaisation to make DVD of our camps which normally has 45 hrs of class room discussions. I never knew that 20 gb is nothing when 45 hrs will need 45 x 5gb apprx and so i had to buy one external hard disc imoga 160gb and download the days recording. now we realised that 45 dvds will cost a lot and each attendee of the camp cannot afford to spend that much so we decided to compress it - 4 sessions in one dvd-
everything was going smooth until one day suddenly the pc started telling us after one hr or so that dvd burning has failed and from that time onwards we find we are not able to record it regularly and properly.
also some of the recording from the JVC we copied directly on to the dvd tbru the pc...and made one dvd per session..
now when we need to include that into the compressed dvd, we find it not possible as when we copy that dvd to the pc, we get two files..vs and audio separately and find it not possible to add it along with other files of iomega.
i hope u understand what i am trying to explain..sorry that i have no idea of computer terminology and also the technology.
can any one kindly advice how to solve this problem please?

do u have any suggestion for better dvd writer and better softwere?
the format of the dvd produced is mpeg i understand
a big thank you in advance for any help to everyone who think they can say something on this.
