I am capturing my home videos from a VCR and trying to burn them onto a DVD+R for playback on my home DVD player. (GE5803P which says they should play) Problem is they will only play on the computer.
I have been successful making VCD that works on both.
I have tried using Sonic MyDVD, Roxio/Dell VideoWave Movie Creator and the ULead Movie Maker 2 (downloaded 30 day trial) and attempted the ULead Media Studio Pro but that was way over my head.
I have also tried using silver and black dvd’s, read somewhere that this player may have problems with the darker colors.
Nothing I have burnt onto the DVD+R seems to work and I’m wasting a small fortune on DVD’s in my attempts.
I have a Dell 8250 with a combo drive, 200g HD and Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.06GHz. Video Card 128DDR ATI Radeon 9700 TX w/TV out and 3 sound cards listed 1) MS Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device, 2) Creative Tech. Creative SB Live! Series (WDM), 3) Dell Comp. Corp. Dell Movie Studio Audio Device. I also have codec’s that came pre-installed and presume I have the ones needed but not sure as I don’t know where to check for them. (I am new to this)
Gosh, hope I included everything that will help you to help me but if I left anything out just let me know and I will get it.
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions!! I am at your mercy.
