Paul Posted February 15, 2011 Share Posted February 15, 2011 We have a huge amount of family video tape, some of it going back to the early 1950s (this is some form of film which was updated to video years ago). Needless to say for the family this is really important stuff, weddings, parties, birthdays, suitably embarrassing "small child in bath" stuff being saved for future wives etc!!! I have spent many hours successfully transferring the video to both external hard drive and the laptop. About 120gb in total. It all plays perfectly on the laptop from either the C drive or the external drive. I now want to write some of this to DVD. Every time I try to burn a DVD, using Roxio, the programme tells me the DVD has been written successfully and seems to take a suitably long time to do it. It looks to be very similar to burning a CD. However when I try to play back the DVD on the laptop all I get is the title page. The files saved on the DVD look OK but are small suggesting although the programme appears to have created the whole file. I've tried using Windows Media Player but that appears to only burn CDs?? Help, this is driving me insane. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
