Question about Lite On CD & DVD Burners
Hello. I have a LITEON DVD/CD Burner (All Write) and am having problems importing video files into Windows Movie Maker after I burn a DVD (from a VHS tape) with the LITEON. When I click Properties, I notice the large files are in VOB format, smaller ones say BUP and DAT.If I finalize the DVD it will play in a home DVD player,but when I insert into my DVD drive of my Dell Computer and try to import to the Windows Movie Maker program, a window will pop up stating that "Windows does not support this file type". I would like to use the program to edit/cut/splice/add music to my home movies, which are on VHS. Can I convert the files to compatible format ? Or would you recommend another video editing program? Any help will be MUCH appreciated. Thank You.

It contains features such as effects, transitions, titles/credits, audio track, timeline narration, and Auto Movie.

Best possible option is to get a good video card that has inputs for your vhs player both sound and video,
it will come with the software needed to edit your own and to add those extra special features then write to disk also.
a good burning software is from www.nero.com
Trials available for download,
There are plenty of good softwares available for home editting but for good results do yourself a favour and get good Audio/Video card first time ,
compare with friends before buying even go look at them in use to see if your happy,
You'll be glad if you get good results from the start,
Movie maker You will need to check out the help section and compare the specs with NEROsite info,
Hope this helps,

• Do you have any third party CDDVD burning software?
• Are you able to burn DVD's using windows explorer?
First I would suggest that you try burning using another DVD and check if it works.
Try one or more of the following:
Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Hardware and Sound.
3. Click Device Manager.
• Make sure that the videos you're trying to burn are not corrupted. To see whether the videos you want to burn is corrupted, try playing or viewing them using Windows Media Player. If the files don't play using the Player, Windows DVD Maker cannot burn them.
• Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
1. Return to the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
2. In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.
