    Do you mean DVDR? Have you checked to see if the .dat files on the disk are already in mpeg format? Sometimes all you have to do is change the file extention..

    No, RootDude, its DVR file format. Its a video file (television shows) recorded in Media Center PCs. The new format is called DVR-MS. They r basically DVD-like MPEG2 files and can be viewed using the Windows Media Player on the Media PC but might not work on normal PCs with XP unless the proper DVD media codecs (both audio and video) r installed. Here's more info: http://www.mvps.org/marksxp/WindowsXP/mceplay.php

    Anyway, Froggy, to convert DVR to MPEG2 u can use Cyberlink's PowerDirector. Its trial for 30 days, and its about 80 MB, but its very easy to use. get it here: http://www.gocyberlink.com/multi/download/dl_file_new.jsp?ProdId=4&lang=ENU
    OR u can use the DVR-Edit from this site: http://www.thegreenbutton.com/downloads.aspx
    If u dont have the DVD codecs to watch the file, then download Klite Codec Pack.
