Hi Busygal,

What software package are you using to create the movies? When saving, what information is the program giving... save to location? type of file?

Good Luck

Rigel

What software are you using to record your movies? What steps do you take?

Good morning busygal,

Sorry for the delay in answering you. I am a youth group director, and we had an event this weekend.

I tried to open your link, but it wouldn't open. So, I searched the microsoft site and found lots of info on this version of XP.

I looked up Windows Movie Maker 2. That is the component in Media Center Edition that allows you to make the movies. I found a couple of pages on the Microsoft site that gives a lot of info. I am going to post these here instead of cutting and pasting. I think these should give you a great guide in the complete process from the start of creating your movie - to the burning process.

I hope this helps out. I have to be honest and tell you I wasn't aware this version of XP existed. :thumbsup: ... so I will be downloading it to learn all the good stuff about this version. From what I have read, it looks good. Just another example of learning.

Have a great day!

Rigel

busygal,

I have a MCE 2005 PC, and I from your post I'm guessing that you recorded a movie in Media Center and now what to burn it..? If that's the case, then Check out

http://www.thegreenbutton.com/downloads.aspx

MCE records in DVR format, so you have to get a utility that will convert to MPEG so you can burn. Check out the DVR Ripper Utility on that site (by the way www.thegreenbutton.com is the site that Microsoft lists as a support site for their MCE 2005..)

Hope that helps
