Hey all, I’m in a bit of a predicament. I hope I can get a quick response.
See, I’ve been working on this school project for a long time, a video project–but instead–I’m doing an animation. As such, I’ve drawn and scanned every frame, and put it all together to work on Macromedia Flash Professional 8–exported as a .avi-- and it seems to be going fine. Now, the problem is, I can’t play it just as a CD and file on my teacher’s comp. I have to get it into a format for the TV, so either–a cassette, or a DVD.
The problem is, I think my TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1612 can’t even burn DVDs. I’m pretty much a newbie when it comes to deep technical things on the computer (though I -am- computer literate). I’ve tried DeepBurner and CDBurnerXP Pro 3 to burn it onto a DVD, and so I can check it on my own DVD player to see if it works–the problem is, CDBurnerXP Pro 3 doesn’t even detect my DVD drive. DeepBurner does, but the Burn and Erase options are grayed out–so I assume that my DVD drive is a bit funked up, and can’t burn or be detected–though it can play DVDs fine. I downloaded Nero InfoTool, and it only detects my CD drive: HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8400B. Doesn’t even detect TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1612.
The big problem is–this is due on Tuesday! So, I’m sort of crushed for time and not sure what to do… anybody have a master plan to save me?
