    I have made a 7 minute long movie using Windows Movie Maker. I want to put the movie onto a DVD so my friends can watch it on their DVD players but everytime I try to create a DVD it does not record the movie for some reason. My friend suggested using Nero but I really do not want to start from scratch again and make the movie all over using this program. Shouldn't I be able to make a DVD using Windows Movie Maker? If anyone can help me with this I would be very grateful, this movie is going to be a X-mas gift for my parents and I want it to be perfect.

    Do you have a retail version of Nero? You should not have to re-do anything per se. You will have to convert what you have to DVD compliant files. You need an authoring app, Nero has one.

    The MS link speaks of Roxio, not my favorite.

    Depending on what your movie was saved as, AVI?, try the free version of Video DVD Maker.

    I think he will have to author/convert (to DVD compliant files, VIDEO_TS etc.) first, whatever file he currently has. None of those free apps will do that (NeroVision Express equivalent). DeepBurner (free) will only do DATA DVD burning, the others will take already DVD compliant files and burn them but he needs to get them compliant first.
