Dmsm Conversion

Question

I'm a new user and sucessfully captured and edited a VHS movie. But it saved as a "DMSM" file. I tried the conversion feature, but it won't recognize the "DMSM" file. How do i change this file so I can burn a DVD compatible with standard DVD players?

If you used the Roxio USB capture device, the video was captured to MPEG 2 or DV AVI. DMSM is not a video file. That is the Videowave project file. Just open MyDVD and add the .dmsm file to the Main Menu. Edit the menu as needed and burn.

Hi GG,

Let's say you have 3 DMSMs, can these be put together and make an MPG? So far all I can get MyDVD to do is offer to make me a DVD, is there anything in Roxio 2011 that can take 3 DMSMs and make an MPG that can be saved and viewed on my computer, then I could email it to someone.

 

I started in VideoWave and shortened them, then saved them as a DMSM, but then I went stupid. ;-(

Thanks in advance,

Launch Videowave, open the dmsm files and then using the Output task (this is not Save or Save as) output your project to a video file in the desired format. You can then use Videowave again and add each of the previously video files and combine them.

HEHE, I never know which program to try what in. Would you believe I have owned Roxio 2009, Roxio 2010, and now I'm on Roxio 2011. I used to have all the Creator series as well. But I alway gave up and put everything back in the box. But you GURUs are making a big difference to me this time. I also ordered a big box of DVD+RWs, I am going to learn this stuff this time.

Thanks and Happy Holidays,

OK, guys, I'm back again trying to figure this program out. So I succesfully captured a video from a VHS tape and it is now stored on my computer as a "MPEG" file. I tried to make a DVD out of it using the convert feature but it wouldn't work. What should I be doing to make this video into a DVD that I can play back on my DVD player?

How long is the mpg file? You can get about 1 hours of best quality video on a single layer DVD. You can get more but at a loss of quality.

 

Same one as above - Create DVD (MyDVD). Open it, select menu or no menu and add that as a "new movie", click burn.

 

When you go to burn, select best quality and then select to burn to an ISO file and uncheck the other options. Name the file and set the location. Once it finishes, preview it in VLC player (free download from cnet.com). If it looks OK use the application on the Home page to copy the image file to a disc. This is best practices and I could explain why but for now, just try it.

 

Do not scrimp on quality - don't use store brand DVD and Memorex has given most people problems sooner or later. Verbatim and JVC (Taiyo Yuden -on line purchase only) are considered two of the best.
