burning a home movie on CDR, to play on DVd player

  Tinnie 23:48 14 May 2004

I have tried this using Roxio software and Windows Movie player 2, then tried play on a Samsung DVD player, wich acording to the manual will play CDR, MPG and VCD.

However on each occasion the message "no disk" appears on the screen.
I am using Windows XP home, on P4 2.6 Mgz with 1Gb of RAM, amd 128 Mgb graphics card.

What am I doing wrong, has someone else had this problem?

I'm no expert on this but I imagine your DVD player will recognise and play audio CDs as well as DVDs. You will probably have to burn your video to a compatible DVD, using Nero or some other DVD burning software,for your player to recognise it as a video DVD.
This is just a guess but it will bring your posting back to the top of the pile where others more knowledgeable than me may be able to help.

what are you burning it as?

What did the video start as? was it an avi file if so burning this to a disc will not be readable by a dvd player. It needs to be converted to an mpeg2 file then burned to disc. I would suggest using a program such as Pnnacle studio or ulead video studio.

Thanks to all whos responded to my plea, I have resolved the problem but not via Roxie or Windows movie player, as a newbie to video I had to get something that is easy to use.

It also hard to teach an old dog new tricks!!

A PC magazine recommended tha Pinnacle studio 9, this has logical,easy interface, so that what I bought, and succesfully burnt a home movie, to view on my DVD player.
