One of my kids wanted some video of skateboarders, so I downloaded quite a few small free clips but am having a problem burning them to DVD.

They are .mov, .mp4, .wmv, and .m4v formats. I have quite a few burning programs both downloaded and preinstalled but none seem to want to work.

Any suggestions appreciated.

I think you have to convert those files before you burn, I'm not that savvy with video. I got a guide for maybe what you want to do http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/268285, there is a trial for the software or you could Google for a free video converter.

What do they want to do with the video clips? Use them for a school project??
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Thanks all. Appreciated.

Last night I tried DVD Flick (thank you YourHighness) and after a few mistakes managed to get 3 DVDs burned off to RWs. Will just copy them now which should be fairly straight forward.

One thing is that the original clips were pretty small but burned out to full screen with corresponding degradation. There didn't appear to be any option to fix the finished size. Any ideas?

Have just printed off the instruction sheets, thanks tg.

One strange thing that happened earlier, was that although FLICK says it is an all in one tool, IMGBURN automatically jumped into the act to do the actual burning. Looks as though I have some reading to do. (When all else fails, read the instructions. LOL)

Cheers
