DVD burning

My thanks to those who have responded to recent questions about writing
movies to DVD. In an earlier post I mentioned using my Hauppauge card to
convert VCR tapes to MPG files (VCD format). My mistake was I wrote these
videos to a VCD MPG format for burning to a regular CD. I should have used
the format that would allow burning to a DVD.

Today I found that Ulead's Movie Maker will take those VCD MPG files and
write them to a DVD without any special effort to convert them to another
format first.

I burned five small files to the DVD as an experiment. They played with no
problem in our DVD player. However, when I tried to write an additional five
files to the same DVD I was told by the Ulead program that the DVD was not
empty and to insert a new disk. Being a novice in this field, I thought it
was possible to continue to write to the DVD until it reached its potential
capacity. Apparently this is not true? Could someone comment on this
please. Can you make only one pass at writing files to a DVD? Or is it
somehow possible to write addition sessions to the DVD? Perhaps someone
familiar with Ulead could help here.

On second thought, I would be happy for any response to this issue. Thank
you so much for your help.

No unfortunately with DVD authoring you cannot "multisession"
Once a DVD is burned your done, you can't put it back in and add to it.

Exactly. It's the same for burning music CDs. If you can listen to them in
your car or CD Player, it's "finalized." Just as you were able to view the
files on your dvd player, that's proof in the pudding that the session was
closed.
I bet there are apps out there that allow you to work in a multisession
format, but I don't know of any (I've got Nero and Ulead MF 3).

Thank you gentlemen
Very insightful.While the DVD world appears to have some fascinating
technology, it appears it has a way to go. But I guess that's the $$ end of
it. Release only a little at a time, and make a lot more money requiring the
public to upgrade as we go.

Again I appreciate your direction and help. Perhaps one additional question.
I downloaded Ulead's 30 day trial version. It appears much more powerful and
capable of things I could not do with the version that came with my
Hauppauge kit. For example, what I described earlier. The lite version would
not take the MPG VCR file and burn it to a DVD. Any idea about upgrade cost
.... or is the price the same no matter how you cut it. Curious & thanks
again

I'm not sure about upgrade pricing, I paid 100 bucks when MF3 came out. I
didn't know of a really kick butt prog called NERO that had just been
released in version 6 of all its fury. Sure, it's not Adobe Premiere, but it
works pretty darn good for us novice users. After all, it's not like I'm
trying to put my home videos on the 6 o'clock news!
I, too, have the Hauppage TV tuner and it came bundled with Ulead MF2. It
worked fairly well until I installed MF3 which I prefer more. I guess you'll
just have to weigh the pros and cons of it all. Personally, I'm considering
buying Premier Elements. The only one I can't advise is Sonic. Didn't like
it, uninstalled it, that settled it for me. However there are others on this
newsgroup who seem to swear by it. Try and search for "ulead" here and see
what you come up with.

Good luck!

Larry: Again, thank you for the helpful information. About burning music to
disks. Am I correct in assuming that a generic CD player in an automobile
will only play music from a CD .. and only wav files at that? Also, that
music on DVD disks will never play in a car stereo regardless of whether mp3
or wav formats?

Yeah, just b/c DVDs and CD LOOk the same, don't get them confused. Think
apples and oranges. Music on DVD discs can only be played on a dvd player or
dvd rom. There is something called DVD AudioExtractor that lets you rip dvd
sound to mp3s, then you can use nero or whatever to burn your mp3s onto cds
that can be played in most audio players. I won't cover that part here :)

There are car stereo CD players and home players that will play MP3's burned
onto CD's but not on DVD disks. Doing this allows a lot more songs on a
single CD.
As a side note there are also many home DVD players that will also play
MP3's. I took all my CD's and ripped them to my HDD and added my purchased
MP3's. I then burned them all to one DVD that I leave in my DVD disk changer
all the time. I now have a virtual jukebox of sorts on my TV with Dolby
surround!
