Hi. I've tried to find the answer to this elsewhere on these posts, but have been unable to.
I'm completely new to all this - so please bear with me.
I'm trying to do the simple thing of transferring camcorder miniDVtape to DVD to watch in a bog-standard DVD player with TV.
I've managed to capture the stuff, and edit it using Pinnacle Studio 8. I've even gone htrough the motions of burning it onto DVD - which takes a few hours. It says the disc is created succesfully - but it doesn't play in the DVD player or the PC.
I've managed to get it to work once using a shorter trial movie - but never again. Even with the same settings. On occasions, the reverse side of the disc doesn't look like anything's been burned on it at all.
I downloaded the trial version of NeoDVD7, and a similar thing happens - although looking at the disc, SOMETHING'S been burned on it - but put in it in the DVD player and it only shows the first frame, before crashing the DVD player. The PC won't even recognise the disc.
Help! I seem to be doing everything as the software wants me to.
I'm using Philips DVD-R discs (4.7GM 120min 1-8x speed) and a SONY DVD RW DW-Q30A writer. Using Roxio Easy CD and DVD creator 6 will burn data DVDs perfectly.
Thanks in anticipation - and apologies if I sound stupid.
