Hi please help, I am trying to put my wedding video on to DVD. I am trying to upload the software that came with my video camera but keep getting the error "D:/ is not a valid Win32 application". What does this mean and how can I fix it?

Thanks so much in anticipation!!!

Could try copying the files from the DVD to a temporary folder on your hard drive and running the new software install from there.

In windows explorer, lt click on the dvd drive, Then place the cursor to the right of the top files, left click and drag the cursor to the bottom of the page. This should highlight all the files. Then place the cursor on one them, rt click and drag it to your c drive.

What os does it say on the dvd packaging that is required? Are you sure you didn't pick up one for xp 64?

  Allison010706 22:07 21 Mar 2008

no, it says for windows - millenium, 2000 pro, xp pro, xp home, mac os x

I take it that you have no problems with other dvd's, it is possible that the disk is faulty and needs returning to the shop.

You have to use a Program , you cannot just drag files as with a Digital Camera. Use Windows free Movie Maker to import the video for editing then use Nero to burn to DVD
