Dvd Burn Problem



Hardware: Canon HDV-1080i video camera; Dell inspiron 530 w/intel core2 duo 2.33GHz, 3G ram, 250G HD.

Software: Vista Pro, Roxio easy media creator 9.0


imported video using roxio viseo import, video transferred to computer as MPEG-2, *.mpg file.


Problem: I used roxio to download my videos to my hard drive, and it accomplished this by creating *.mpg files. I tried to burn a DVD with these files and a roxio window comes up stating "the file you are trying to use cannot be edited, and has not been added." :huh:


Any thoughts on what I need to do to burn these videos to dvd?

Which Canon HDV camera do you have? Did you import via Firewire?


I got a new Canon HV-30 2 days ago and had no problems bringing in the video. I did not have an option for format; it comes in as a mpg2 file.


I have XP; not Vista so that is one major differenc; the second is that I am using EMC 10.


Download and run Gspot on that file to see if you have the right codec.


I am able to add the file to Video Wave and edit it.


Can you play it using WMP? If not, perhaps the video import was bad.


Here is what mine looks like:
