Burn Mp4 To Dvd; Is Copy And Convert The Right Product?

Question

Just bought Copy and Convert 5 today for the purpose of burning MP4s onto a DVD that a DVD player can read. The MP4s came from VHS tapes via Elgato Video Capture. Do I have the right Roxio product for this task? I haven't been able to get it to do anything useful so far.

I don't have a copy of that software, but here is what it claims to be able to handle from this Roxio page.

Note that in the Input Format field it mentions MPEG-1/2/4, and in output formats it claims both DVD and DVD-folder, so you should be able to write a Video DVD from your MP4 files.

Brendan,

Thanks. I saw that info; it was what convinced me to buy the software. More detail: I picked a small video mp4 file, told the software to save to Disc/Disc Image with output set to DVD. The progress indicator dialog says "Creating DVD, Phase 1 of 1 0%" and it has for the last hour with no change. When I clicked the button to start, it spun up the DVD drive a little, then stopped it. The program is taking up about half of the available CPU cycles but not indicating any progress.

Running Windows 7 under Parallels 10 on a MacBook Pro with 8 GB of RAM.

Sorry, I can't help with Mac work. I think Parallels might be a program on the Mac which allows you to run Windows software, is that right?

I don't know if it can run this software properly.

 

I have sent a message to try and get Tom, our Mac expert, over here for you next time he comes on the board.

 

Regards,

Brendon

You're right about Parallels. It runs Windows as a Virtual Machine. I have a lot of Windows software that runs perfectly. Why would the Roxio software not do any file conversions or even show previews of mp4s? I'll be interested to hear what Tom has to say.

I'll start by saying 'I don't know!' :lol:

 

Have you tried any other files with it?

 

Have you tried any other MP4's with Roxio?

 

Parallels seems to work with other Roxio Software and incredibly, even Hardware! But I have never heard of anyone mentioning that this software or that application of the software works with Parallels ;)

Sorry, I have no experience running a Windows emulating app on my Macs. Maybe you can find answers at a forum that discusses Parallels. Maybe that is a limitation of what it can do. I have no clue.

I waited more than a full day for tech support but they didn't contact me. I spent several hours trying to get the software to work. Have decided to get a refund. This software seems not to work properly on my platform: Windows 7 under Parallels 10 on a 13" MacBook Pro, OS X 10.9.5.
