View Full Version : Burning MPEG-2 Clips to DVD - Not playing

06-08-2008, 06:33 PM
I have a Sony Handy Cam 40GB DCR-SR46

I download the movie from hard drive of Camera onto to PC and then i burn the movie files (MPEG-2) onto DVD with no problem

Hoever when i play the DVD on my TV, it plays fine except after halfway
the video starts distroting and making n squeaky noise bit like when your Sky digital TV starts getting interrupted during boradcast and images start being jittery and audio is jittery too.

When i view the same clips on my PC they are playing fine hence nothing wrong with camera recording. Also during DVD buring i get no errors and everything appears to have gone smooth

Can someone advises whats happening and what if any fix for it?

Update it (http://www.sony-asia.com/support/download/252745/product/dcr-sr46?site=hp_en_AP_i)

It may help, but hope youre on broadband, its 278mb

Also try turning the burn speed down from it's setting often these things are auto set to burn at fastest possible speed. I have had photo's not burn properly before and winding the speed down corrected it

I'd say it's a dodgy DVD. If you're using some cheapo ones, get a few decent quality ones like Verbatims & try those.

Was the Sony program a edit and burn to DVD or just a edit program as DVD need authoring to DVD before they will play..??
