Can anyone help as to how I can change the file format to one that will enable me to record on to disc that will play on a DVD player .None that are in Arcsoft will do this.

I need to know beforeI send camera back.

The Total Media Extreme that comes with the camera will do that. You just have to select the output to DVD (instead of BluRay) and then it will create a regular DVD for you.

DVD is a disk structure, Fishy. You have .IFO, .BUP. and .VOB files in a VIDEO_TS directory and the disk must be burned for a DVD-Video format. The .VOB file is video in an MPEG-2 format not DV-AVI. So all you have to do in Total Media Extreme is set it to DVD and insert the videos you want. They can also edit the videos as well as the menu. It can be saved to a folder or burned to a disk in the program.

If all else fails do that thing that most people don't do..... read the help file.:-)
