    Hi,
    I have filmed a viode (1hr long) on a brand new Cisco Flip Ultra HD. The file is 3.7GB and I have managed to get this onto my laptop hard drive from the Flip. It is in .MP4 format.
    I have then downloaded a free trial version of Nero 11 and have used Nero Burning ROM 11 to burn to DVD.
    I tried using the DVD-Video mode but this says the file is too big (over 2GB) and suggests to use UDF.
    So, I have used the DVD-ROM (UDF) mode to burn the file onto a DVD.
    Have used a TDK DVD-R 4.7CB blank DVD.
    The file transfers onto the disc, but when playing it back using Windows Media Player the video is flickering, blurred and I cannt hear the talking or music and the picture flickers.
    When I try to play on my laptop using InterVideo WinDVD it says "No valid Drive/Disc found".

    I have done this process twice and same result both times.

    Can someone give me some advice please as urgently need to get this DVD burnt for a submission.

    Thanks very much

    also.... if I look at the DVD via windows explorer the file is still in .MP4 format - not sure if that is relevant

    Are you trying to convert the files into DVD format, or are you wanting to keep the same mp4 format? If you want them into DVD format, then you are going to have to use a converter, such as DVD Flick to convert to play on a normal dvd, otherwise, all you did was just copy the files from your hard drive to disk.
