Hi I am a very new to this
Have just come back off Holiday and I am trying to make a movie out of the Video Clips I took
Invested in the Nero 9 download and after a lot of trial and error managed to burn them on to RW Disc
It seems to play ok on my Laptop as it obviously has the Nero System installed however when I try to play it on the TV via DVD Player it comes up as unknown disc
Its driving me mad Hope some one can help

How did you create the disc, did you just burn a video file to it or did you use Nero to create the proper DVD formatted disc. You may also want to try a non re-writable disc, not all players work well with re-writables

Thanks for the prompt response
After a lot of trial and error I managed to edit and join up about 11 sets of clips totalling approx 4 GB then went through the burn using Nero to download on to the DVD Disc
What I am using is a Verbatim product purchased at Costco is 4x DVD-RW
4.7GB 4 x speed vitesse 120 min
DVD Recordable I DVD -Reenregistrable
(if that makes any sense)

What would be your reccomendation and where do I purchase ?

"4 GB then went through the burn using Nero to download on to the DVD Disc "

Again, can you elaborate on the burning Process. Nero will let you burn video files as data or can create the proper DVD format. Which way did you burn your videos, as data or as a video DVD?

If you did burn the disc as a video DVD and it didn't work in your stand-alone DVD player, try using write once discs instead of re-writables. They are harder to read and some players have difficulties reading them.

Try a DVD-R, instead of DVD-RW. As stated, some players don't like -RW's.

If (on the laptop) you browse the DVD, do you see a video file, or two folders (Audio_TS and Video_TS)? If you don't have the folders, it's not in DVD format and will need conversion before burning to DVD-R.

"problem was resolved by a colleague of mine"

But, wouldn't you prefer to learn how to do it yourself, for future video clips?
