    Thanks for this. I have tried the free demo, but whilst my PC recognises that the disk now has a movie on the disk. My dvd player attached to my television still will not recognise or play the disk.

MPEG-2 video is the file format you’ll need to convert to, but you cannot simply burn the MPEG-2 to a DVD and automatically play it in a DVD player.
The easily way is to buy software that will make the transition smooth; I recommend VSO Convert to DVD.

How to Convert Camcorder AVCHD MTS Videos to Netgear EVA9150 ?


Convert/Play Panasonic/Canon/Sony AVCHD MTS Files to Netgear EVA9150 Suitable Formats for Playing <br /><br />The <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/category/netgear-eva9150/">Netgear EVA9150</a></b> is the successor to the EVA8000, which won a Best Buy award in our last group test. The new model has some significant improvements, including an easily accessible 500GB hard disk and support for an even wider range of HD video formats and protected WMA-DRM10 files. Netgear EVA9150 offers equally strong video support as follow: <br /><br />Video file formats: AVI, DivX, Xvid, WMV9, MOV, M4V, VOB, MPG, MP1, MP2, MP4, ISO, IFO, MKV (with AC3 only), TS, M2TS, PS <br /><br />Audio formats: MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC, WMA-Pro, M4A, M4P, AC3, DTS Passthrough, PCM, LPCM <br /><br />From above info, we can find <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">MTS format is not supported by Netgear EVA9150</a></b>, but now many AVCHD camcorders like Panasonic HS900, TM-700, TM80, Panasonic AF100, Panasonic HDC-SD5, Panasonic SD900, Canon Vixia HD Camcorder, Canon VIXIA HFM300, Canon HF M41 HD, Sony HDR-SR8E, Sony CX700V, etc give recordings with .mts as extension, which are not supported by Netgear EVA9150. So if you want to play MTS files from camcorders to EVA9150, I will recommend two ways to achieve it. <br /><br /><b>First Method, </b>you can rename the MTS extension to M2TS or TS, it will play fine. But his method may not work with all the MTS files. <br /><br /><b>Second Method, </b>download a powerful MTS Codec software. <b>Aunsoft Final Mate</b> is such a MTS decoder which helps to decode and convert camcorder MTS files to WMV, MPG, AVI, MP4, MOV, VOB etc with high quality in fast speed.

I have prepared a home movie on Windows Movie Maker and when I copied it to a DVD it would not play on a dvd player can anyone tell me what I did wrong please thanks joe


The reason why the DVD disk you created may not contain the file format the DVD player recognizes. On a normal DVD disk there are two folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. The video files are located in the VIDEO_TS folder. This video folder contains the VTS_xxx.vob video files (the video files has a .vob extension).
The video file you created may have a avi or wmv or mov or mpg extension, whilst these video files can be played on a computer but they won't play on a DVD player.
Check the movie software you are using and make sure it creates the correct file format for a DVD player.

Created a DVD from my FS100, unable to get sound when playing it on my home DVD player however have sound on Laptop using WinDVD. Do I need to change format of DVD and if so to what file type ? thanks much


It's the format of the movie clip (.mod). The files need to be converted to .mpg in order to get your sound working with WMC or other video player. Google for a .mod file converter and you'll find several out there.

Easy way to burn WMV video to DVD and play on a DVD player


One of the most popular video formats used with computers and found on the web is WMV. WMV is wide compatibility with Windows PCs. it short for Windows Media Video. And it is the name of the video encoder that was created by software giant Microsoft. The advantage of WMV is that Good compression and quality. WMV movies are played with third party media player programs such as "Windows Media Player, "RealPlayer" and "VLC player". A lot of people saved WMV clips onto compute and want to make WMV to DVD for playback on a DVD player watch videos on TV screen.

DVD ( Digital Video Disc ) is an optical data storage device which can hold large capacities of digital data like high quality video and movies. A VOB ( DVD Video Object or Versioned Object Base ) file is a container format for DVD video files. An explanation of VOB files is beyond the scope of this article, but a study of the software part of the DVD format is essentially a study of the VOB container file format. With CD’s or Compact Disc’s becoming virtually obsolete with the emergence of high capacity storage HD DVD’s and Blueray disc’s, more and more video editing tools are geared to conversion between these two highly popular media formats, WMV to DVD.

How to convert WMV file to DVD?
Before we go to detail steps, there are some Pre Requirements: A blank DVD disk (DVD +R, DVD-R, DVD+RW or DVD-RW), rewritable DVD-ROM, A WMV to DVD Converter. Most DVD burning software can easily burn WMV files to a DVD as data. Here we use Daniusoft DVD creator. It can burn WMV Video files to DVD directly.

You could check the video size on the measure bar on the bottom. Make sure the space doesn't exceed the total DVD capacity.

Previewing WMV video
Just for make sure everything goes as your plan you could have a video preview before burning it to DVD.
