This can just be a glitch in finalizing the video , that's why its working when you try to play on your computer so what will be the best thing to try here is to try burning again a new video and make sure you everything will be finalized.....

Hi,

A couple of ideas to start off:
the video taken by the Canon HF10 was viewable during playback both on the camera and on the computer;
there were no error messages when movie maker was run;
the DVD was finalized in the PC prior to being played on the home DVD player.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi additional information:


    • If you are using Windows XP, then in File>Publish Movie, options are only 'This Computer', 'Recordable CD', 'E-Mail', and 'Digital Video Camera' but no DVD;

    • If you are using Vista then you should have Windows DVD Maker;

    • Windows Movie Maker doesn't create the DVD;

    • Moviemaker calls on DVD Maker to burn the DVD;

    • and it also depends on the version of Vista, if Basic no go;

    • if Premium yes, DVD Maker is included.



  • Louie  Role

    and of course the simplest would be to save the completed/edited video first in your computer and use another program to convert and burn them to a finalized DVD such as Nero.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Oct 20, 2008

    if the completed/edited video is being saved as an .mswmm, then it is being save as a Microsoft Windows MovieMaker file, not as or into a DVD. Please try the following steps to add your Windows Movie Maker project file to your DVD:



    • In Windows Movie Maker, save your Windows Movie Maker project file (which


    • has a .mswmm file name extension).


    • Close Windows Movie Maker.


    • Start Windows DVD Maker.


    • In Windows DVD Maker, click Add Items.


    • Locate and select the Windows Movie Maker project file (.mswmm), and then


    • click Add.


    • Verify that the Windows Movie Maker project file gets added to the DVD.
    Again, for the disc to be viewable in a standalone DVD player, it must be finalized (Finish, nothing more to be written/edited). The finalizing could take a very long time. Pls reference these additional insights.

    Cheers.

Can you record onto DVD from VHS with a Sony SLV-D950G1


Yes, I have the same player. However, I have it hooked to my computer to do so. I use Windows Media Center to do so. Just hook to it and play normally, the VCR while you are recording with the computer. Then, with Windows movie maker, I burn whatever it is to DVD. There are other software programs out there that can help if you do not have Windows Media Center or Movie Maker, such as Nero or Roxio. There are some freebie programs if you understand computers a bit more, from either CNet or Majorgeeks, two websites I get freebie software programs from, as well as learn from on what is good and the benefits/how to use. Hope this helps.

What Operating System do you have?
What you need is a DVD authoring program. You have a plethora of programs for Linux (K3b, DVDAuthor...) and for Windows, it depends on the Version (XP: Windows Movie Maker, Vista: Windows DVD Maker).
Just open the concerned program, create a new project, add your movie and burn your DVD!

WILL NOT PLAY IRON MAN OR KINGDGOM OF HE CRYSTAL SKULL, BUT IT PLAYS ALL OTHER BLU-RAY DISKS


Go to the wed site and download the latest Firmware update to your computer. It downloads as an image file. The use a disc burning software like Nero or Cyberlink's Power2Go and go to "Burn Image to Disc" and burn it on a regular CD-R. Insert that to your player after turning it on and let it do its thing, it will take a while so don't power down thinking it froze or it will mess up your player.
After the update is done, your player will re-start. You should now be able to watch the latest movies.
Be Warned! Even newer movies might have issues playing. That's normal, just give time for the manufacturer to release an even newer Firmware update to play them. Just one of the things we have to live with for the sake of 1080P.

Windows Movie Maker disk won't play on my dvd player


DVD-Rs have higher compatibility. Also use a good brand like Maxell.

Also, make sure you finalize the DVD.
