    I have a load of mpegs from my camera that i want to play on my main dvd player. But it wont play CDR's just dvd ( yes i need a new one) I'm using nero and pinnacle instant cd/dvd. Can these convert the mpegs to dvd, or do i need more softwear? By the looks of it they can't.

    Can i just back the mpegs up to the dvd as data, or will that mean player wont be able to read them?


    Cheers

    Yes, it's unlikely your DVD player will play them unless they're "formatted" correctly.

    I know Nero's latest version (6) can do this (& a whole lot more :eek:) but others will no doubt have more/better suggestions.

    Best of luck :)

    Ulead DVD Workshop (Trial Available) will convert VCD MPEG 1 audio to 48khz DVD standard, which is all that is required to play MPEG1 on a DVD.
    Using this method I have put 8 hours of video in VCD MPEG1 format (From Nick Jr) for my kids onto 1 disc, with surprising quality.
