The DVD I created has serious playback quality problems. What can I do to fix it?
Windows DVD Maker allows for filters. A filter is supplemental code that changes the audio or video output when the audio or video is processed. For example, a filter might brighten or sharpen video for certain types of Mpeg4 files or add compression to an audio stream to decrease your file size. Filters get installed with other DVD and movie editing software applications. Not all filters are compatible with Windows DVD maker and can cause problems when files are viewed. Such problems might be video that plays upside down, is blank, no audio, audio that is too high pitched, and more.
To fix playback problems associated with filters, click Options, click the Compatibility tab, and remove filter selections.
What do I do when the file that I recorded has no sound?
To ensure that the computer can receive sound, check that the audio cable connection is properly connected to the sound card, and that the line-in on your Windows volume control is not muted.
What is the difference between the 1 hour DVD and 2 hour DVD media?
1 hour DVD media is a single-layer single-sided DVD disc which can hold up to 4.7 GB of data. 2 hour DVD media is a double-layer, single-sided DVD disc which can hold up to 8.5 GB of data.
I created a DVD but it does not play on my home DVD player.
Determine which media you used (DVD-RW/R or DVD+RW/R) and make sure that your home DVD player supports that type of media. Many new DVD players can support both formats, but some older players may not.
Why do I get the message stating the media is not ready when I try to create a DVD?
Make sure that you have the disc properly seated inside the drive with the correct side up, and verify that the media format is supported by your drive.
