Question

I need help and can't find it anywhere. I have mini DVDs that I want to change to regular sized DVDs. I want to put 2-3 on each regular DVD. How do I do this. It either says "no file" or the program stops responding. It says to drag to the disk but I don't see a disk to drag anything to. Looked at tyhe tutorial. That was no help.

Are there menus on the mini-DVD? Where did you get them? What do you want to do with the final DVDs?

 

Use Video Copy and Convert to put the movies onto your computer. Read the help files to go from there.

 

What program did you try? The "Roxio Burn " program is not a good one to use unless you just want to archive the video files. . What tutorial did you watch?

 

If you are trying to use Roxio Burn:, you must go to the Home page and select tools and then enable the application for the burners you have.

Not much info in your post.

 

What is on those miniDVDs? Are they data discs, video, music? What kind of DVD are you trying to create: data, video? Looked at what tutorial? What says "drag-to-disc"? You have to be specific about what you are trying to do, what program in the suite you are using, etc.

These are family videos of the kids. They are 30 minutes or less each so I want to combine them onto 1 video. When I had the Nero program this was an easy process but it had instructions. Roxio has no instructions except the tutorials that did not help. I also did not know how to post a new subject so that's why I posted my question where I did. I went to create a video which was confusing enough as it is. I clicked add video and thought I was adding the video to the project. When finished I got a pop-up that said drag something to the disk and there was a big disk in the pop-p that immediately got smaller and disappeared withing a couple of seconds. Then there was no disk visible on screen. When I clicked on "burn" 1 time it said "no file" the other times, after starting over, it said "not responding" at the top. All I want to do is make 1 video out of 2-3 mini DVDs. Unfortunately, my Nero program, for whatever reason stopped working and when I tried to uninstall and reinstall, it won't. So I bought Roxio.

It is just as easy with Roxio. You will have to tell us though exactly how you want to preserve those videos on a DVD: simple as "combined" video files or as a video DVD that you can play on a DVD player. It is just not a case of simply drag and drop!

 

 

First of all you have to get the video from the miniDVD to your hard drive. Simply use Windows Explorer and copy your video files from the miniDVD to a folder on your hard drive (you can create anywhere). Once you have done that, come back here and let us know if that worked, we can then proceed to the next step.

 

Like cd asks in his post, tell us what format those videos are, ie what extension do they have.

Please remember that if you put more than 60 minutes of video on a single layer DVD, the quality will suffer. Depending on the original mpg2 files, the results may be unsatisfactory.

 

Do not go by what is printed in the hype or what the disc and files sizes are..
