If you are using win XP, or Vista, you should have a program called Windows Movie Maker, which should work. In my case, I didn't have DVD capabilities when I got the computer, so Movie Maker won't write to DVD. I d/l a freeware program called DVDFlick from http://www.majorgeeks.com.

I assume you want to watch the movies using your DVD player.

The easiest is to look at some of the CD/DVD burning software, many will take your video files and create a DVD compatable video DVD.

Some newer DVD players can play avi format files directly, so check and see if your DVD player can. It will also depend on what the format os of your movies.

Thank you for your reply, i d/l the program u said but when I try to add a title i get the following:

"cannot render thumbnail for... The video codec may be unsupported."

I am trying to copy a video taken on my memory stick pro duo card to dvd.

I always use RAD Video Tools to convert my video files to uncompressed AVI files. You won't get any quality loss with this format and it will be accepted by most DVD recording programs.

Download:

Warning: you need a huge amount of disk space to save uncompressed AVI files.
