I was wondering if there is a decent converter out there that will burn onto a DVD or convert to USB, music files or film files that can only be viewed on a computer to a standard DVD player?

I downloaded something called 'Super DVD creator', but it will only convert the first 5 minutes of anything you upload to the program to convert. I want to blast some music videos on my big TV via DVD (whether disc or USB) but all the decent hi-quality stuff I have, can only be viewed in the computer.

This program I downloaded costs $30.00 US, while I don't mind paying for it, I found via this forum that the best programs that work flawlessly are free, so if you can help, I'd be very appreciative!

Thanks!

I believe this should suit your needs. :thumbup2:

I haven't tried it personally, but was actually recommended it by a friend a few months back.

Hi !

Many thanks! I've tried to download this program twice, however each time I install it, and then try to launch it, I get a little box in the middle of the screen that reads an error message:

'The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.'

Any help, is much appreciated!

By the way : after waiting more than 2 hours for 'Super DVD creator' to work - all I got was an error on the DVD!. (removed program!)

Thanks!

OK, I've tried 'DVD flick' - have you used this program? While the program comes with a ton of different formats, all I want is just one - to be able to convert the file to play on a DVD player...which one is that, from the long list? I've tried a few, but no luck as yet...any suggestions?

Take a look at http://www.daniusoft.com/ they have some freeware listed that might do it for you.

Thanks for the input...however, in this program, selecting 'DVD' gives me a VOB file which my DVD player will not play...any other suggestions? B)

Selecting DVD (4.3 GB) should create a folder containing a AUDIO_TS, and a VIDEO_TS folder.
The AUDIO_TS folder should be empty.
The VIDEO_TS folder should contain .VOB, .BUP, and .IFO files.
The VIDEO_TS folder is the one you want to use, to build your DVD.

What program are you using to build the DVD?
Give ImgBurn a try.
It's a free program.
Here's a tutorial on how to use ImgBurn to make your DVD, using the VIDEO_TS file:

Okay, I've tried to play around with all of these programs...no luck...! I understand what are saying with the AUDIO_TS, and a VIDEO_TS folder. However this format does not play on a normal DVD player that is hooked up to a normal TV...the question is, is what format WILL work on a standard DVD player...that is the question I pose to anyone out there... :o

Are you just burning the VIDEO_TS folder to a DVD, or using a program to build it?
Just burning it to a DVD, won't work.

I am using all of these recommended programs - Imgburn, danusoft etc, but nothing works...I am using these programs to build the program onto a DVD, but all I get is 'codec error' or 'unsupported format' from the DVD player...

What is the source and formats of the files you are attempting to convert?
Are they protected files? DRM for instance.

FWIW: Something to consider...all CD players do not support burned CDs...the same may be true of DVD players. A quick Google reveals that such is the case with DVDs also.
