Question

I imported a video from my camcorder and tried to burn it to a DVD using Mydvd. After the program burns it to the disc, the computer or two different dvd players I have tried will not open it, it only says windows cannot access the specifice file, path, etc. The programs says it burned it successfully, but the only thing on the disc is the intro from my dvd. I have done this successfully several times in the past but now it won't work. Any suggestions?

Could you list the folder and files on the disc you burned?

Did you create a menu? What do you mean by "the only thing on the disc is the intro from my dvd"?

 

Some more specific information on what you did would help.

The file I used was a wmv file. That is how it transferred from my camcorder. After I burned the dvd it shows the file system as a UDF. I have never seen that before when I burn dvds. Instead of burning it to a dvd, I tried saving it as an image file and that showed it being saved as an ISO file. I then tried to burn it from that and I again just get a 17 second intro. What I meant by the only thing on the disc is the intro is when you open mydvd the intro is the menu style and background before your video begins. That is the only thing burned on the dvd. When I preview the video it shows like normal. In mydvd there is a menu on the left side that shows the intro and under that the video. Is there a specific type of format that the video should be saved in when it is downloaded from the camcorder? I don't remember seeing a choice.

Hope that helps a little more.

I did not ask what the file system is on the DVD but the list of folders and files..

 

In C2012 the Intro is a video that will play as soon as the DVD "opens" and it always plays before the main menu appears. To add video to your project you should be using Add Photo/Video.

 

 

Without knowing what kind of camcorder you have and how you are transferring the video to your computer, it is not possible to make a suggestion.

 

Generally if you have a digital camcorder that uses DV tape then you have capture the video. For digital camcorders that use a hard drive, SD card or DVD, you can usually simply copy the video from the camcorder to the computer.

 

For analog VHS camcorder, you need a capture device to allow conversion from analog video to digital.
