    dvd burning.

    Need to get a video file to play on a dvd player.

    The software we have does not work, its a pinnacle studio 8, and its trying to write the image across the network to my documents folder. And you would think there would be an option to change the location of where the files are kept. But no. So it just sits there and hangs.

    arghhh, so any free software that you use to create the dvd image / burn the dvd would be a lot of help.

    they do a free educational license for version 6 (not 7). decent software, but they will spam you into oblivian so use your headmasters address when you sign up for the license key.

    There are other apps but am sure videohelp will give you the tutorial and point you in the right direction ( depending on what software you use )

    Does nero come with every dvd burner now?

    Found that to be quite good. Always gotta start it up in 'start smart'. You can change where it sticks the image too.

    The reason it hangs is probably due to a space issue... but you probably allready knew that!

    I have that but it wants a prepared video folder with the vob files ect in it, which is the bit I am having trouble with. (having a huge head ache is not helping either).

    I've used some software called convertXtoDVD, it converts .avi files to DVD format and burns them for you. Not free though.

    Thanks, but we have 15 left in our budget and I just spent 10 on batteries.

    Its going to end up as a VCD at this rate, its not even a good video.
