    Problem getting Windows DVD maker to burn a video to a dvd

    I am running Win 7 Pro 64 bit.

    I have a 2 hour video I created using the record function on a GoToTrainning session. I have been unable to find a combination of settings which will allow me to save this video to a dvd. I have other similar sessions that do work with the same software.

    For some reason every time I try to make a dvd of this presentation I get to the point of actually burning the dvd and the program hangs.

    The dialog box says Creating DVD please wait .... Encoding 0.0%.

    Have tried changing various options without any luck. I do not believe the video is corrupt as it plays just fine on several machines and uploads without problem to the GoToMeeting website.

    I have two questions. 1. Any ideas on how to fix the problem so I can use Windows DVD maker? or, if that turns into too big an issue, 2. Suggestions for alternative software I could use to get the same results. I need to be able to create a dvd that can be plugged into any computer or home dvd player and it will work without issue.

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    I couldn't see where that filehippo link went to DVD-making software??

    I use DVDFlick myself, free and works well, not the best ability to make DVD menus; pretty basic there.

    I did, still looks like it just burns to a DVD, not that it makes a properly structured DVD for DVD players...still can't find that part if it does. Description and technical info is very light though so maybe one who has used it would know better.

    I used to swear by DVDStyler Portable.pdf till I found Freemake Video Converter, it's simply brilliant and so easy to use, an adult can use it.

    Larry,
    Hello...I have run into problems trying to burn things to DVD's also...Sometimes it's the "Format" (mov, avi, etc.) that the video was created ... What i have done in the past that worked ( once in a while) was this ....

    1. Copy the video to disk (option) .. Then... it will recognize the video and change it ( Format) to something that "Windows DVD Maker" can understand. Then you can "Burn" the file to DVD using Windows.

    2. Other times i used a 3rd party software to change the video to .avi , so "Windows DVD Maker" could use it ...

    Hope this helps ...If not please ignore ...need a good nights sleep. Regards Fred
