    I picked up a DVD burner and I'm having no luck at all getting a DVD to work.I'm converting AVI to MPEG2 And using Virtual Dub to seperate the audio and the video.Then using the B's recorder gold5 wizard,I burn the DVD.Then all is well,untill I try to watch it on my DVD player and all I get is "Disc error".It's not the player,it's equipped to play DVD-R-RW and VCD.
    I have no idea what I'm doing wrong,except for wrecking about 15 blank DVD's(which ain't cheap!).
    My question is...does anyone know a program that will convert the files AND burn them to DVD for tech stupid people like me?Or point me to a site that can help?
    I should add that the new burner burns audio and MP3's fine.
    Thanks...and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!(I know it's early,but what the heck!)

    I'm not sure you can assume it's not the player. I've discovered that there is a large gulf between the advertising copy and the actual capability of many disk players. Have you tried it on different players?

    FWIW, I had to make myself a bunch of disks in my quest for a DVD player. I made a DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, VCD, and an MP3 disk. Then I went around to stores and tried my battery of disks. I bought the player that would handle them all. :)

    I can only assume that what the owners manual says is true.I can tell you that it plays regular DVD's,audio and MP3's great.But I will have someone try them on a different DVD player to make sure it's not the player.
