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

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 ;)

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.
