Hi and thank you for reading & answering my post. With the holidays I have gotten out my trusty old camera to take some home movies. Now I am trying to capture them to view on my DVD player for TV. It's been some time since I did this. (I actually did accomplish this fet once). I use a digital camera that takes home movies. When I upload them to my computer they are copied as video clip AVI winamp media files. I use Roxio Easy CD creator 5 to burn my photos to a CD-R disc, but it will not burn my home movies for viewing on my DVD's. I can only view the home movies on computers. Duh... :D I know I am pretty lame... I tried burning to DVD-R disc but I don't have a DVD burner on my hard drive. Duh again...:( I'm sure I must need a DVD burner installed on my hard drive... but when I first got my camera many moons ago I was able to see my home movies via the DVD player. I can't remember how I did it. (If you don't use it you lose it... my brain!) Is it possible to burn my home movies to a DVD disc or... maybe my DVD could read Mp stuff and my new DVD won't??? So many questions for a beginner. Can you help? I do have software with my camera... Pixela...Imagemixer VCD...
Thanks again for any suggestions.

what you are looking for is "VCD" burning software. a VCD is a CD that contains the format that a DVD movie is usually written in. most burning programs come with that ability.

I tried the Windows Media and that didn't work. Now info about a VCD software fix. That sounds interesting. I wonder why I was able to record and see my home digital movies when I first got my camera and not able to now? Thank you for your advice. I will go shopping for better software.

It's possible that your DVD players are not compatible with VCD format disks. Or, you may simply have to change the CD-R media you're using, perhaps the brand you used to use worked in your DVD player(s).

I will read up on my DVD manual and see if it is VCD compatable. The CD-R media and changing it is a little above my understanding. I could go into the software instructions my camera came with and possibly fix it there, but I know I will have to free up several hours to get this accomplished.
I will let you all know how I am coming along as soon as something happens.
Thanks so much for the replys. I appreciate all the feed back.

I'm talking about the brand of CD-R media your using to record your movies. If you've changed brands, that could be one issue.
