If its a XVID movie or dvdrip it won't play on a DVD player unless the DVD player has the DIVX label on it, like phillips brand DVD player that has a DIVX label and a usb drive. then you won't have to burn to DVD, just put it on a thumb drive or external hard drive that's a fat32 configured then you'll be happy as a lamb.

Really LOL LOL LOL LOL you aren't suppose to be downloading movies but none the less. If you download a movie for burning it on a DVD then playing it on your old DVD player. you have to download the image, it has the .iso extension or the 4 gig size, which takes about a week to download. 4 gigs is pretty large, then you have to load it on a virtual drive, then you have to run it through a dvd shrink program then allow it to burn to DVD then your ready.

The movie you had downloaded is in AVI or divx format ....for that you need to have a divx enabled DVD Player.......
If your dvd player does't support DivX format .... it won't play it..
Try running that movie in DivX enable DVD Player

I want to burn a dvd from movies on the internet


Whatever website you're downloading from, make sure that you have bitcomet and windows media player. Download the movie from the internet (using bitcomet) and play it in windows media player. When you enter the disk burn it using either Windows Media Player or BitComet (please check I am unsure) and burn it. If that doesn't work --- contact Dell/IBM/Microsoft

My windows media player wont play movies


Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

How do I burn a dvd movie from the Movie Maker so we can watch it on a regular dvd player


Burning a DVD is not all that simple. Some Emachines come with a DVD player drive but not burner. Just because your system has windows movie maker on it does not mean it can actually produce them. You need to make sure it actually has a DVD writer on it and not just a player.

If so I would definatly look into some additional software for making DVDs as movies maker is flakyand not all that great. If you are not finding the option to burn the movie in movie maker the changes are you do not have a DVD burner insalled but just a DVD player drive.
