Re: No sound on dvd recording from video cam

You have to convert your video to DVD format (MPEG-2 or VOB) at first, otherwise normal DVD player cant read and play your burned DVD. I always use avs video tools to convert and burn video to DVD to play on my TV, my friends recommend it to me, it's easy to use and works pretty well for me, you may download it for a try, and here is a guide about how to use it
If you have any other questions, feel free to email me.

Did not burn dvd

The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."

The DW-100 is really more for archiving your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to your problem:

1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def, you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder to your TV via an HDMI cable.

2. If you want to have standard DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to your computer and convert them to standard-definition using video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good) to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).

I've used the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3 instead of letterboxed.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I recorded my movies on the dw 100 but now i can't grt them to play on my dvd player

The DW-100 records discs based on the format they were originally recorded.

If your camera is recording HiDef videos than the discs this unit creates will be viewable on a Blu-ray disc player.

If your camera is recording in Standard Definition (ie. NOT HD) then I believe that the discs will work in regular or upconverting DVD players.

My Canon camcorder does not record in Standard Def so can't quite vouch for that last comment though.

No DVD sound LiteOn LH-20A1L

The audio lines from the DVD player should be hooked up to the sound card.  If the two audio wires are not connected, no audio will happen.
