Have you got any dvd players (software)installed ?

Hi, yes, i use intervideo winDVD, i recorded the clip on the player/recorder that is wired to the TV, then put the disk in the PC, nothing..

If its a player/recorder can you not play it back on your TV, or you will need third party software that supports the file system the DVD is being written in

oh I see, the clip was on a vhs video tape, which i put onto a dvd disk because i wanted to make a screensaver out of it..so it looks at the moment i have had it.............thanks, i will think again.........

i had a similar problem not so long ago,what i eventually found ,was that these dvd recorders don`t automatically close the disc...."lead in...lead out" this must be done as part of the editing programme of the recorder.I`m not saying that this is your problem, but is worth looking at.

If you have it on DVDRW it should be ok as is but if on DVDR as apianglo states there should be an option to finalise the disc so it will play on other dvd players

Thanks again, i will see if it can be finalized now, if it is not too late..
