Hi You would be better on helpdesk, however it you have it in VOB files then just burn using for example nero, be sure to finalise the disc

DVD Flick works fine; (least for Windows XP). Free.

It needs to be converted from WMM to a DVD. Two options -
1. use DVD Flick as above
2. If you want to do more ediiting, then get a proper video editting prog, such as Ulead, Adobe Elements or Pinnacle Studio V943 or better (I use this) and that will burn DIRECTLY to a DVD and probably give you a better quality output. David

You say you have made a movie in Windows Movie Maker. The chances are that you saved it as a WMV file, which is the default - (hopefully at best quality).

DVDflick will convert and burn this to a DVD that will play in any DVD Player. I have done this a few times.

Note: you will probably get better quality if in future, you save the finished movie from WMM as an avi file.

'it never gave me an option on how i want to save it'

Taken from the link I gave above

After you've decided on your output format, click Save to my computer under Finish Movie in the task pane. Enter an output file name and click Next.

If only one format choice is visible, CLICK SHOW MORE CHOICES. Now three choices should be available. CLICK OTHER SETTINGS and then select your desired format from the list. Click Next and wait for the output to complete.
