Video DVD from mpeg2 files

  sean-278262 18:33 26 Dec 2007

Hi everyone. My father has gotten a Digital camcorder and I have been trying to work out how to burn off a DVD. I have explained how to encode the video files to mpeg2 and edit them. However the supplied program has just produced 10 coaster DVDs in 2 days and gives no reason other than "DVD burning has failed click here to quit or click here to retry".

What I would like to do is know is there any program that will produce a finalised DVD for free. As I have said we have it all in mpeg2 ready to burn however Sonic power producer refuses to burn it without this error. If possible we would also like to add photos to the DVD. Menu designs and that sort of thing we are not overly interested in, we just want to get a finalised DVD.

I found that program shortly after posting and it does not work sadly.

To clarify it works but fails at 99%.

MAJ I wish to burn the disk so it is playable in a standard DVD player. I wasnt aware CDBurner XP could burn video dvds. Do you know of a guide to doing this?

  MAJ 22:31 26 Dec 2007

Yes, CDBurner's help files, under "Create Video-DVD", Astec123.

I use Nero to burn my DVDs, Astec123, so I haven't tried it with CDBurnerXP myself. If you're stuck, download the trial version of Nero 8 and use the NeroVision component. click here

Cheers guys. Will post back sometime tomorrow when I give them a go. Fingers crossed. As for DVD flick it just fails with no error reported. The log is clear. Will give the suggestions a go starting with CDburner XP.

Cheers and goodnight.

Use DVD-RW discs until you get it to work, then use DVD-R, you wont then produce coasters. David
