Mini dvd can be burned on a regular dvd, but cannot be played

Can someone tell me what program they are using to copy by burning a mini dvd on regular size dvd, so that it can be played on a dvd player. I've burned it with Windows Media but it will only play on a computer.
I can play my mini dvd but I need a copy.  I can copy on the VHS from my VCR, but I want a dvd.

I have a sony handycam dcr-dvd201. I want to copy the mini disc onto a regular dvd

you can't direct copy to disk (if you not finished the session) in 98% you home DVDPlayer can't play this. Try to make DVDVideo disk with the help of special program(Nero Ashampoo etc) Or maybe you get some soft with your camera (it will be useful too)

Mini-DVD playback here is the manual look on page 62 for playback on a pc. you need a dvdrom drive. if you have one make sure you have software like windows media player 10 or 11, or powerdvd to play the movie. as for editing the video is a little bit more tricky. you are going to have to "rip" the video and then combine it in a program like windows movie maker with the other dvd that has been ripped too. when you are done editing in windows movie maker just choose avi or dvd type.

What type of files are on those little mini dvd's? Are they digital files? are they avi or mpeg 2? I am a soccer mom trying to get clips to college coaches who cant deal with the minis. I want to get the...

The files are MPEG-2 files, the exact same format used on DVDs. I create sports DVDs for high school athletes who are applying for college scholarships, and I deal with these discs all the time. For football, most coaches have the camera operator start and stop the camera for each play, so you can simply copy the MPEG-2 file to a "DVD Authoring" program, and then create a disc. For soccer, however, the camera probably is running for the entire half, perhaps only being stopped after a goal or for some other prolonged stoppage of play. Therefore, you need an editing program that can cut MPEG-2 files without re-encoding. Telling you how to do this is beyond the scope of what I can do in FixYa. However, if you have a PC (as opposed to a Mac), then you can purchase Studio from Avid/Pinnacle Software and it will let you both edit these files and then create a DVD that you can submit to the various colleges.

Hope this helps!

I am trying to copy the DVD I finalized in the Canan DC210 to ano

Simple way if you have two dvd trays in your computer: just pop in the mini-disk in one tray and load a DVD+r, or DVD-r recordable disk in the tray of the DVD burner. Use the burning software that is available on your computer to "copy the disk".Other way:Just popin your mini-dvd into your computer and drag and copy the file folder (video_ts folder)onto your hard drive. Now, use dvd burning software that supports DVD images. I use the free ImgBurn program from: (Remember, use "build mode" within ImgBurn to create the "DVD image" that the program will burn to disk.Disregard all the terminology if you don't understand it. ImgBurn is very simple to use. I mention "DVD image" because the conventional type of disk burning (copying documents, photos, etc. on disk) will just create a "data disk" with files on it. Video files burned in this way will play on computers but not on all stand alone DVD players.

Burning video from Sony Handycam DCR-DVD105?

i dont think that you can keep the menus from each mini dvd. but you can create your own dvd video with menu and at the same time you can merge all of your mini dvds. After you upload the mini dvd videos to your computer then use Nero 8 or 9 Software. On Nero look for dvd editable and browse your dvd videos then do as the instructions says to you. you should burn that with one DVD disc with menus of your own choice

Transfering Videos to my computer?

Sounds like you have conflicting file associations, which means that some types of files open in one player and others in another. However, this isn't your main problem.

To play the DVD file on the pc you need to have the .ifo, .vob and the .bup files in the same directory as well as the video_ts files etc. Easiest way to do it is to copy ALL of the files from each disk to a folder on the pc, then you can play them from there and format your disks ready to be re-used.

If you'd like further help with converting the format and sorting out your file associations please post again but the above information should cure your immediate problem.

Transfer my minidv camcorder film onto DVD

You need to download the movie to a computer and store it in a video file. Then you should be able to use a software program to burn it to a DVD. I use a TIVO for watching and burning my videos. You don't need a computer. You save the video by recording it to the TIVO's hard drive then after it is on the drive you DUB it to an empty DVD-R disc.
