Mpg To Dvd In Creator Classic - Dvd Player Can't Read Output

Question

I have a program called Creator Classic under Roxio Creator Enterprise Editor Gold running on XP SP3.

 

I was filming my daughter at a volleyball tournament and my Sony camcorder ran out of battery. A friend with a newer Sony camera agreed to share her videos with me so I could burn a DVD for the coach. She transferred the videos off her camcorder and into Windows Movie Maker on a Windows 7 PC. She saved them on an external hard drive and I copied them to my hard drive. My Sony Picture Motion Browser could not detect the files. I upgraded the software to the PlayMemories Home offering from Sony and still no dice.

 

I was able to view the MPG files using the CinePlayer that is bundled with my Roxio Creater Enterprise Edition so I set about trying to write them to DVD.

 

I opened the Creator Classic and selected make a Multimedia Disc, selected a few MPG files, loaded a new DVD+R disc and selected Burn. The Burn operation seemed to run fine but when I took the disc out and put it in my Sony DVD player, I got a message on the DVD player that it could not process the media.

 

Do I need to do a conversion from the Windows 7 MPG format to AVI or something else in order to get these files to burn onto DVD media???

Do I need to move the files to a Windows 7 system and open them in MovieMaker and output them to another format? \

Thanks for any help

You need to author them to the proper DVD Video format and you need software that will do that.

 

I've never seen or heard of "Roxio Creater Enterprise Edition" so I don't know if it will do what you need it to do..

thanks for the quick reply.

 

On the About for my Creator Classic it says Roxio Creator 10 Gold

Build 102B06JENU

Technical Support ID removed

 

 

This is what I see on the About for the Roxio Creator Enterprise:

Creator Enterprise Edition Gold

Version: 10.3.206

Build: 102B06J, VG2

Serial Number: [removed by Brendon]

Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007

 

Module Name: PX Engine

Build: 4.16.170, 51

Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007

 

 

Is there anything else I can provide you so you can tell me if I need to get other software or not?

Hello,

 

I think what you've done is just written the MPG files onto your disc as MPGs, and your DVD player won't play them. Many older players require standard Video-DVD discs before they will play.

 

When you open a standard Video-DVD disc in a Windows you'll see it has a VIDEO_TS folder which contains files with names ending in .VOB, .IFO, and .BUP. To make a standard Video-DVD you need a program which will convert your MPGs into the files which make up a DVD video set.

 

Creator Enterprise Gold is an $18.50 cut-down version of the full Creator which costs 5 times as much, but the advertising claims it can still do DVD Authoring, which is what you need to make a standard Video-DVD.

 

Can you find a program called MyDVD or MyDVD Express on your menu? That will be the one you need. It should convert your MPGs into a proper Video-DVD with or without a menu for you.

 

Regards,

Brendon

No menu entry for MyDVD or My DVDExpress.....I have a trial copy of VideoSpirit Pro that seemed to work (but of course put a watermark on the output). Is that a good program to use if I want to spend the $60?

 

Your on a Roxio board website and your asking if "VideoSpirit Pro" is worth the $60,00 bcks they are asking for it! :wacko:

Sorry - the Roxio was supplied as the standard load on my work computer and has served all my needs until now.

I doubt I can even upgrade it to the full Creator on my work computer because of the way the software is managed.

What would the Roxio solution be for this problem? How much does it cost?

No entry for Video.....that is likely the problem...there is a Video Copy & Convert program that I have used in the past after producing a "master" using the Sony program with my own source video files (AVI format). But no way to produce the DVD-format files you are suggesting I need. I guess I need more software after all...thanks for the help....

Here's the menu for the full suite, EMC 10 so you know what to look for.

Creator Gold claims the facility for Video Authoring, but if you can't find a section in the home menu for Video I don't know where they've hidden it, and I'm stuck.

So I did more homework on the Roxio site and found

Easy DVD Copy® 4 Premier

 

 

Will that Roxio product accomplish what I need?

I really don't need a fancy video editor, just a converter, I think.

I need physical media to distribute to coaches and parents - 15 copies;.

 

Will the above product get my MPGs into the right DVD form?

Thanks for your help

Sorry, I have never got my grubby mitts on that program, so I can't advise.

 

All you need is a DVD authoring program, which Creator Enterprise Gold claims to have already, if you can just find it.

The attachment shows what my Roxio main page looks like.

 

Looks like my employer got an even "skinnier" version of the Gold than you found.

 

 

Have a look at this http://www.roxio.com/enu/company/press/archive/2010/roxio_creator_enterprise_puts_media_to_work_for_business.html

 

 

In the 2nd paragraph, 1st line it sez "tailored to the unique requirements of organizations." so who knows what they had ordered for your version.

So I think that means I don't have DVD authoring as was suggested above.

Will the Easy DVD Copy® 4 Premier product that I mentioned above address the problem?

 

Since you Roxio folks have been so helpful, I am trying to find the Roxio product to solve my immediate need.

(And thanks for fixing my screenshot, I had found the attachment feature and posted before I saw your post!)

Go with the Roxio Creator 2012 product.

 

You will be better off spending the extra $20 bucks.

I think you're right. These sliced-and-diced cut-down versions of Roxio software seem to give varying mileage.

It claims that it will. There's a list of features here:

http://www.roxio.com...r/features.html

 

. . . but I would follow Cdanteek's last suggestion, myself.
