Can't figure out why I'm not given the option to burn to CD from MYDVD. I have a production I made and want to put it on a CD instead of DVD. Am I missing something here? I've read the help section and it says I can, but I can't! :blink:

Well, maybe because the name of the program is, MyDVD?

 

What type of production have you created? How long is it?

 

Are you trying to create a VCD and not a DVD? In any case, you're right, there's no option for burning to CD when your project is set to be a DVD. If you want to create a VCD (much lower quality than a DVD) then start by going to File -> New Project -> VCD.

 

Does that help?

Media Creator 7 it gave me the option to burn to dvd or cd. A box would pop up, when I was ready to burn, asking what I wanted to burn it to. The vcd and svcd have thrown me off. It is 690.9MB. I didn't want to put two productions on a DVD. It would waste too much space.

Thanks

EMC 7 was Roxio. Everything after EMC 7.5 is Sonic infiltrated.

 

However, it is very easy to mak a VCD or SVCD. Do what Dave told you to do, in his post.

 

Aside: When you consider the quality difference between a VCD video production, and a DVD video production, paying $0.40 or so, for a DVD, makes sense. Even if the DVD isn't filled.

Not as hard as you think :rolleyes:

 

I assume you have done a Save in MyDVD so you have a dmsd project file???

 

Open MyDVD and select File – New Project and pick VCD or SVCD.

 

Then click Add New Movie and select that dmsd project file.

 

Burn your CD.

 

To be honest I did not know that until I just tried it a moment ago!

Blessed are they who have actually run the software, Jim. :lol: Some of the 'advisors' here haven't.

Honestly, I was surprised!

 

I thought that when I added the dmsd it would revert to DVD settings. This same question came up before. But when I tested then, I kept Opening the dmsd file instead of Adding it to the production. It is difficult when you are working under the shadow of the dumb gene :P

 

This is a handy thing to know for someone who needs to burn to multiple formats like DVD, VCD etc. because it allows them to retain/maintain only One dmsd project file.

Thank you Bruce,Dave & Jim. Especially for pointing out the price:-) I just have about 50 blank CD's sitting here. I do have it saved and will put it on a DVD. I've made over 20 productions. I'll just put a few more on the DVD for my nephew. So I know what I'm doing. It's just that the new program has thrown me for a little loop. Because I am pressed for time, I thought I'd ask the "pros"....... If I may ask, what does the V and the SV before the CD stand for? I know, probably a dumb question, but I want to understand a little more:-) about this stuff.

Thanks again

Video CD and Super Video CD. The SVCD uses MPEG2 for video instead of MPEG1 in the VCD. I also think the audio stream is a bit different as well but am not sure.
