    I created a movie of a phot montage and music using windows movie maker. I saved it as a wmv file. I used the software which was on my computer (sonyrx860), called Veritas, to burn the dvd. It went fine. I can play it on my computer. But I can't play it on my dvd player, sony or Mintek. Someone told me you have to switch from wmv file to mpg file for the dvd player to read the burned dvd. Is this true? If so, how do I change the file.

    First you need convert your wmv files to mpeg2 format.
    Then you can use a dvdauthoring tool of your choice to create
    your vobs along with the required dvd file structure to burn with nero!!!
    TMPGEnc I think should do that for you.

    ;)

    I appreciate $teve's help. I downloaded the 30 day trial of TMPGEnc Plus 2.5. I took my wmv file and put it in and when it was done converting, it was in a tpr file. Then I tried to save that as an mpeg file and it came up as two files, m2v and wav. I assume that there are two because one part is audio and one is video. I admit I am a novice at this, but I am trying hard to understand. I am creating a phot montage with music for my husband's 40th birthday and I need to get this done asap. I'll appreciate any help. Thanks, pcclan
