    yes thank you. The problem is, I don't really want to burn them on dvd I just want to keep the footage on my hard drive but as one consecutive movie.

    There are many video editors that will do exactly what you want. Try a Google on Video Editors. I have used several but Windows Movie Maker is a decent place to start. It's pretty limited but it will give you a feel for a bit of editing. After that, there are some freebies like Avid FreeDV and some inexpensive ones like Pure Motion Edit Studio 5 and Magix Movie Edit Pro. I'd stay away from anything by Cyberlink and the company simply cannot be trusted.

    actually maybe this explains it easier as to what i need. I have this mpeg but it has been chopped into 22 shorter clips. So when i gather every clip and try to play it in windows media player it doesn't stay in order. For example it will jump from clip one to clip five. What's up with that?

    I often use a program called "AVS Video Tools" for combining and converting. Of all the converters I've tried it's been the most reliable and accepts virtually any format as input or output. To join clips simply click the "+" icon (under the "Browse" button), add your files (files can be re-ordered to your liking), select an output format and destination and hit the "Convert Now" button. Nice program with some good features for $30.

    If you want to create a combined file with very smooth/seemless transitions you'd be better of with a full-featured editing app like Ulead "VideoStudio 10 Plus" or similar.

    There's a tool in TMPEGEnc called MPEG Tools that I use for precisely this purpose.

    Not sure if TMPEGEnc is a free download anymore. Used to be for MPEG1 encoding.
