Dude ....jus insert your cd/dvd in the computer..!
Then go to My computer>open disk drive>Open your movie file...!! If you don't have the software to play that file...then download this software...This will play almost every video file... http://portable-vlc-media-player.en.softonic.com/universaldownloader-launch
Not quite sure what your problem is, if you mean you cant playback certain video formats ( avi/divx) you need the correct CODECS, you can download a player like VLC, it has everything built in, just download, install and play your movies
your gonna need conversion software to convert your movie files wether from avi to dvd files mpg to dvd and so forthn once converted you will burn those dvd files to an dvd cd using an software like Nero and so forth.
1. get WinAVI wich can convert any video files to dvd files.
2. get ImgBurn = free, then burn movie files to cd. make sure though before burning that in WinAVI that you go through advance settings and set the TV system to NTSC for US, if set to PAL it won't play in your dvd player, cause thats european version. if need more detial info let me know
If you're talking about making "Home Video" into playable DVDs it's not because there's necessarily a problem with your DVD-Burner. It's most likely because your home videos are being recorded as .AVI format files. There are some other file formats it could be, but it all boils down to the same problem: the DVDs you make will only play in computers or on the rare chance that you come across a DVD player that plays those formats. The best way to remedy this situation is to buy a program that will convert the files from .AVI to DVD. There are several to choose from. Roxio reportedly has software\programs that will do this. I'm sure that Nero does too. Both companies produce several different versions of "Burning Software" do your research and be sure you buy one that will convert the files for you. There is another one that I've personally used to convert the files and burn the DVDs for me. It's "I'm Too AVI-to-DVD". I know that is an odd name for a program, but it's straight forward in what it's function is. When I used this program to convert the file formats for me and burn the DVDs it literally took several hours to convert and burn about 5GB of video for me. I don't know if Roxio or Nero would be able to do it faster than that. converting file formats can be a lengthy process.
