How To Produce A Dvd That Plays On Dvd Player

Question

Hi,

 

My computer uses Windows 7 and I am using Roxio2011.

 

I used Roxio MyDVD to create a movie project. I added photos and then edited to add captions to the pictures using production editor (storyline) and finally added background audio (same screen).

 

I saved the video; the product was a DMSD file, which when copied to a disc plays fine on my computer. However, what I want to do is copy the DMSD file or maybe convert the DMSD file so I can put it on a DVD that is playable on my TV DVD player.

 

I have not been able to figure out how to do this.....please help.

 

Thanks,

 

pd.

The dmsd file is the myDVD project file, it contains no video. You cannot simply "copy" a file to a DVDand create a video DVD that plays on a DVD player. All you will have is a data DVD.

 

To create a proper video DVD:

1-launch myDVD

2-add the dmsd project using the "Add Movie/Photo" task

3-create your menu (if you have not already done so)

4-click the red Burn icon to burn to the DVD

Hi,

 

Thanks for your quick reply and guidance.....however, I followed your direction precisely and ended up with a DVD that plays to show picturers, captions, and audio on my computer's DVD player, but NOT on my TV DVD player. When I try to play it on my TV DVD player I get the message : "Cannot play back this disc." Any idea as to what I did wrong, or did not do?

 

I used a DVD+RW disc, could that be the problem?

 

Would appreciate any additional guidance.....thanks again.

Your player won't play any RW disc's or it's a book type bittset issue.

 

Post your settop name and model #?

 

Open device manager and post the exact name (Drive ID String) as it is listed of your DVD burner/burners?

Thx... I opened the Device Manager and this is what I found for:

 

DVD/CD-ROM drives - hp DVD A DH16AAL SCSI cdRom Device

 

If it is of any concern, when I was going through the burn process, this is the sequence and results:

 

Open Project...proceeded quickly

Encoding movie (1 of 2)...proceeded slowly, giving percentage as it burned and moved to

Encode Menus...was at 97%...didn't take too long

Record Menu....Still 97%...didn't take too long, and then moved to

Complete...Was at 97%....and took FOREVER.....maybe 10+ minutes, then ejected disc and registered 100%

 

If you need additional information, please let me know.

Yes, that is the only DVD/CD-ROM drive listed. There are disc driver, display adapters, Human Interface Devices, IDE ATA/ATAAPI controllers, Imaging Devices, etc...but that is the only DVD/CD-ROM drive I find; the computer only has one DVD/CD ROM drive.

 

If it is on any consequence, the DVD that was burned works fine on both my desktop and laptop computers, but not on the TV DVD player.

 

Thanks.

I will try a DVD-R and see if it works; will let you know ASAP.

 

Thanks.

 

That player will play everything.

 

Use Windows Explorer and look at the DVD you burned and tell us what files are on the DVD. There should be a folder called Video_TS and several files with the extensions ifo,bup and vob. If you don't have that then you did not follow the instructions and did not create a video DVD.

Hi,

 

I tried your instructions using a DVD-R and the DVD it created CAN be played on both the computer and my TV DVD player...Thanks. Sorry it was such a problem but I suspect you "wrestle" with them everyday.

This forum is GREAT. Personally I've had some issues and I'm going to buy a box of DVD -r (Verbatim I understand are the kind to get.) Now IF that doesn't work, does this forum have any suggestions for an inexpensive USB DVD writer (64 Bit Windows 7) that I can plug in and kiss my troubles goodbye?

 

One last quick question: I've been trying to run Roxio on my 64 Bit, Windows 7 laptop. Should I consider running it on XP instead? Just wondering the zeitgeist of the group on OS choices.

 

Thank you again everyone.

 

Charlie

:D

Why the "-r" makes the difference? Thanks.

 

The original poster was having problems using DVD+RW......."some" DVD players will not play them, so it was suggested to try a -r one...........he came back and said that worked out ok,,,,,,,,,it also might have been ok with a +r...but we will never know unless the user responds on here again.

 

 

FYI
