    Well....this is the condition.... :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

    * i need to write a video (WHICH I RECORED MYSELF IN MY SONY CAM) to a cd

    * since there was no option in my sony utilities to copy to hard-drive ..i had to run the tape and record using windows movie maker (XP)..

    * windows moviemaker saved the file in .wmv format.

    * I want to write the cd , such that it supports universal reading facility.

    * i copied all the video.wmv files (7 in total) into a cd and tried it in a cd and dvd player(CONNECTED TO A TV)..BUT IT SHOWED DISK ERROR or DEDECTED A BLANK CD.

    * so.....i changes the cd..BUT THE SAME PROBLEM lives again..

    * so....should i convert the .wmv files into other files??if so please tell me how..OR can create a vcd from a .wmv file??..if so..HOW?

    ...??

    Hi Rumaxsuriya,
    Welcome to the forum
    regarding ur problem
    u need to burn the cd as a video cd rather than as a data cd..
    nero will burn ur .wmv as .dat default extension of the VCD.
    Then u will be able to play it :D

    ..:: peace ::..

    Hey dude -

    You say that WMV files are huge? It's a compression format, which means that it will make the files smaller. How can they be huge?

    DAT files are more heavier than WMV files.

    And get this - QCD 4.5 and Winamp 5 can play WMV files.

    use virtual dub :)

    Btw out of curiocity, Eminem, Avril Lavingn,[missing an e] arent rock.
    Em is rap. Avril is Punk Rock.

    Rock would be the doors/metallica/nirvana..

    You think I don't know that? I'm a DJ, for crying out loud! What I meant to say was that Rock's my primary passion, but I also listen to Eminem and Avril.

    So you want to talk about language, eh? Well then, I won't be much of a gentleman if I didn't tell you that arent is written as aren't.

    Well, that said, here's the answer to FunkyB's query -
    For Windows Mediaâ„¢ codecs 7.0 and lower, you can use Nero's in-built encoder to directly convert WMV files to MPEG and burn them to VCD's. For Windows Mediaâ„¢ 9 Series, you'll need an encoder like WinAvi (http://www.winavi.com/).

    I used Nero Ultra 6 to create a VCD from a wmv file
    The conversion from (.WMV--VCD)took a very long time (say 40 mins for 50 mins movie)(it said ENCODING THE FILE >>PLEASE WAIT)
    Also i saw the SVCD option available in the nero video menu

    first of all

    **WHAT IS SVCD?What is the difference between VCD and SVCD?

    **VCD plays automatically in DVD player/cd player, but if we insert it into a system, we have to manually open the MPEGAV folder in the VCD and play the required .dat file (say AVSEQ01.DAT)
    How to create a autorun file such that the vcd automatiaclly plays in both DVD/VCD/CD players and also in computer

    off to "never ever" land
    to autorun vcd's etc ... u have to set "autoplay cd's" option in ur media player
    when u insert the cd ... it'll ask u what u wanna do with it
    all this is in windows XP ofcourse ...
    when u have multiple media players ... it gives a list on cd insertion and u can choose what u wanna do

    for what is svcd etc see here
