Hi, I've posted recently, but my problem is still there. Derek had given me some tips on how to solve it, but I guess my problem is more complicated. I really need help.

http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...

I tried searching for answers and microsoft suggested this method.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/261...

But I'm still stuck. I can preview the DVD, but not burn it.

The DVD Maker will encode from 0.8% and jump straight to 99.0%. With a "Cannot Create DVD - Invalid Class String".

I checked the event viewer, it is 1001 and the error code is (-2147221005).

I'm using Sanyo Xacti recording in full HD format. The extension of the files is mp4. After I've completed my rendering using Movie Maker, the format is now wmv.
Does it affect?

Here is the detail of one of my movie file.
Video Data rate: 24000kbps
Total Bitrate: 24192kbps
Frame rate: 29frames/sec

Please help. Thank you very much.

Stay away from Movie Maker. All that is going to do transcode your movies into WMA format. You will then have to transcode one more time into MPEG2 which is just going to degrade your video.

Follow Ewen's advice and use DVDFlick.

MP4 is not a standard format for a DVD so I'm assuming someone you know put this video on a DVD?

Why are you rendering it in Movie maker? Are you editing the movie or just trying to copy it. If your just trying to copy it, all your going to do with movie maker is convert it to another format, thus degrading the quality.
Try Imageburn to copy the DVD. http://www.imgburn.com/

Google for "DVDFlick" it's free and it will convert the mp4 to a DVD format.

Hi THX 1138 & Ewen,
Thank you for the reply. Yes, I'm trying to make it to a home movie with a professional (the basic DVD menu) look to it. That is why I'm rendering or rather editing my mp4 footages in Movie Maker. Now I'm having problem trying to give my home movie the professional look (the basic DVD menu) using DVD Maker. Are you guys able to help me please? :)

Thank you for the assistance. :)
I've tried DVD Flick but find that it is not able to edit my home videos. I wish to do some cut and edit and put them into a nice story line. Just can't seem to get the Windows DVD Maker to work.

Is there any solution to solve this DVD Maker problem?

Is there any free video editing software I can use for HD home video editing?

Is there any free DVD authoring software I can use to make DVD Menu?

Appreciate the kind assistance. :)
