Why not tell us how you created your DVD?

 

You need to author a DVD in My DVD or Video Copy and Convert for DVD..

sorry i wasn't specific enough.

 

i used mydvd to create the dvd.

 

i added my avi file and hit the burn icon in the lower right.

 

it went thru the entire sequence of events and showed complete with no errors.

 

on disc 2 folders - 1. bdmv 2 sonic. (these are new to me)

 

bdmv contains 4 folders, the one of interest is stream. contains 2 avchd files.

 

files plays video on computer using vlc, not on set top.

 

hope this is clear.

that is an interesting response.

 

there are 2 options 2D on left and 3d on right.

 

select 2d and dvd - goes right to preview screen ( quess) w/ add movie this is what i used.

 

if i select 3d and blueray i get dvd and avchd. select dvd and get drop box w/ anaglyph or reald.

 

from here should i select reald -> real disc?

What type of project do you want to create?

 

What hardware (settop player) do you have to play the project?

that's fine.

 

i'm trying to create a dvd that will play on my parents sony(older -'99?) it plays all the

dvd's they get from netflix and the stores.

 

they are very limited on their computer skills - so i need to build discs for them with pix

and videos of grand kids etc. i put most jpeg on cd, but would like to combine all to dvd.

 

so, jpegs and avi files in and goal is a dvd that plays on their dvd player.

 

thnaks -

It seems like you created a AVCHD DVD which of course can only be played on a BlueRay player which your parents don't have.

 

To create a standard DVD select 2D and DVD on the menu as shows in cd's post #6

 

It still is not clear exactly what you want to create.

Do you want to create a video DVD from your avis and photos that will play like a standard DVD or do you simply want to store the avis and photos on the DVD? There is a big difference between the two tasks.

goal -

 

create dvd's that play on their dvd.

 

so, that would imply conversion to format compatible with sony dvd.

 

maybe i'm incorrect in my understanding, but jeg's and avi don't play on set tops.

they need to be converted by roxio mydvd to play on set top dvd player,

 

if i'm wrong, then i quess i need to backup and go do some more homework.

You need to create a video DVD that contains the standard Video_TS folder. This folder will contain a number of files that have the extensions: ifo, bup and vob. If the files have other extensions then they will not play onyour parents DVD player. The manufacturer of the DVD player does not matter.

To create this type of DVD you need to select 2D, DVD.

 

Most modern DVD players are able to play jpegs and many can play videos in the DivX avi format. Your parents DVD player is not one of these I am sure.
