    Default Saving home video's to CD

    I downloaded my home video's to the hard drive and then burned them to a CD. When I played the CD the video contained lots of different colours as well as showing the outline of the people. Not sure what the problem is. Thanks

    From a camera? If so, wot sort?...or was it from your vcr?

    What file format were they when you burnt them?

    Did the video's play ok when they were on the hdd?

    Had you converted them in any way?

    When I played the CD
    What were you playing it on? your pc?...If so what software were you using?

    Why CD? DVD would retain the quality so much better! Some home DVD players dont like playing off CD as much when they're burned about 4-8x so they display the colors all funky

    I think dchip is on the right pathway here though

    What software did you use? something like nero vision 4 would do well, and yeah, DVDs would be a better idea

    Thanks for your feedback,

    I am recording from a Sony handycam DCRHC20E

    Not sure what file format, (new at this)

    The video's did play fine on the hdd

    I did not convert them

    I was using Windows Movie maker

    I have tried to use a DVD disc but my computer does not recognise the dvd disc. How do you change this? I am running a ASUS DRW-1608P3S 8x dual layer 16x DVD+/-R DVD writer

    I am using firewire rather than USB as well.

    I think MM only saves as WMV. And I don't think it can burn to DVD.

    But it can save what you've edited back to a DV cam.

    What do u mean the computer doesn't recognise the burner?

    What else is on the same IDE connection as your burner? Anything else?

    Whats it say when u try to burn something. And what does it show in my computer? I'm using the same burner, and it shows DVD-RAM Drive.

    I don't think it's meant to say this, but just as long as it burns, I don't care
    what XP calls it lol. It'll be better if u use something like Nerovision, or some other video editing program. To burn to DVD.

    DON'T format the DVD, before u burn to it, if this is what you're doing.
