I'm having a problem trying to burn a DVD using Windows Movie Maker on Windows Vista...

I'm having a problem trying to burn a DVD using Windows Movie Maker on Windows Vista. I was able to burn the WMV to a DVD file but I'm not able to watch on my DVD player.  It plays ok on my computer.  How can I burn a file to a DVD and be able to continue to watch on my DVD player?


If you're running Vista Home Premium or Ultimate
You can try using Windows DVD Maker.

Windows Vista - disk to burn a DVD-video


Windows Vista - demo: disk make a DVD-video

If you don't have a DVD Maker, you will need DVD
Creation software. The following freeware peuvent
be worth a try:

(FWIW) It's always a good idea to create a system
Restore point before installing software or updates)

DVD Flick
(the download is: "dvdflick_setup_1.3.0.7.exe")
(Mirror download (direct link) is the fastest.

Save the file to your desktop or a folder on your
hard drive and install from there.

Be sure to read the Guide:


Tutorial DVD Flick

Burn any Format video DVD PC

AVI to DVD with DVD Flick Guide

To create a video DVD base that should play in a free
permanent drive DVD... try the following...

First... read the DVD Flick Guide to familiarize
with the program.

Open DVD Flick and insert a blank DVD in your drive.

If the window of Autorun from your computer... just close it.

Click the project settings button and check... Video /.
Target format... residents United States... Choose... NTSC /.

The title button left click Add and navigate to your
Video clips and select the ones you want on the DVD.

You can have by selecting one and then use
the up and down buttons.

Left click on the button create DVD / OK / Yes / Yes.

Please wait while the DVD is created.

When the text "Completed successfully" is displayed you
DVD Flick can close. Now you can eject your DVD
and play in your DVD player.

At some point you might want to buy more
Advanced Cyberlink, Nero, Roxio, software
Ulead, etc... but at least it is a start.

Good luck.

    Hi Barbara,

    You can use the player to burn a mixture of songs from the library of the drive or your computer to an audio CD, after which you can play the CD in any standard CD player. Alternatively, you can burn files on CD and DVD data. It is not possible to burn the live streams, such as radio stations, on a CD or a DVD.

  • I burned a dvd using windows dvd creation, when I watch it, after the first 20 minutes, that the image becomes almost black and white with pink exaggeratted shadows. WHY?

    I am compiling my football teams game film.  I created a dvd using Windows DVD Maker.  Each game is a single video file to AVI format.  When I preview the video, no problem. After having carved, (2 trials) when I watch the DVD, the menu screens look good, the video of the first part looks fine, but from second game, or of the stage, the video quality changes.  The video becomes almost black and white.  The shadows and the highlights of the video seem to be exaggerated and that they are pink color.  It seems to be an effect of video editing, but I did no changes to the video features.  Help.

  • I am trying to burn a DVD using Movie Maker, but every time I burn it to disc, what happens at 60%, then all I get is "unspecified error cannot burn the disc?

    I created a movie after the import of videos and images, first after their conversion to Quicktime version to a version that would play in Windows. I made the movie and it plays well in Movie Maker and starts ok when I burn to disc, but happens about 60% each time and then just says it cannot create disc because of an unspecified error. So, I don't know what I have to do? Any help? Thank you.

  • Need help to make the movie to burn to dvd with Microsoft movie maker

    I don't know whether or not we have a DVD burner on our computer. It only gives me the ability to burn on a dvd when I try to publish a movie in movie maker from microsoft. is this in any way about this? I can download something and or transfer the work I have already done to media player somehow and do it? Also is there any kind of CD that I can burn that would play the pictures and sound on the dvd player?

    To burn a movie to a DVD and be able to play on a normal DVD player, you need WindowsDVD Creation.
    Windows DVD creation is included in the system IF you have either
    Vista Home Premium, Ultimate
    Windows 7 Edition Home Premium or higher.

    If your version of Windows is not one of the above, you will need to google for a 3rd party DVD Maker.


  • When I burn a DVD using Windows DVD maker none of the captions appear

    I made a movie with Windows Live Movie Maker from photos that had captions added to a photo editing program.  It plays very well as a wmv on the computer, but when I burn it to a DVD with Windows DVD maker none of the captions appear.  This can be corrected.  I really want to remake the entire project by adding additional legends in WLMM.
