Ive read as many threads/guides re-this, but hopefully just need pointing in the right direction, to save me wasting any more dvd's (ahh you say , thats the pain of learning ! ). Ive tried to be as descriptive as possible, so bear with me... Im basically trying to copy from from my Canon M370 dv camera , onto DVD -R , or DVD - RW. I have tried to use the software provided on my pc, and have nearly suceeded, but having read many of your threads, realise that there may be faster /better PQ ways. I may revert to those once Im more confident. I have used Windows Movie Maker to copy (via firewire) to my pc. This seems to copy them in WMAV format. I have then used Nero Express2, choosing the option 'make a dvd-video' to add titles etc. I can then happily burn to the DVD -R . However, I cant seem to work out how I dont finalise the DVD, and therefore be able to copy more footage to the DVD. I have clicked till my fingers ached trying to find the right option. I have also tried DVD-RW , but mustve been unlucky , as I bought a batch that no dvd burner could read. So, my questions are.. 1 - If using Nero (vision express2) how do I NOT finalise (if thats the right word) the DVD 2 - Am I going down the wrong alley , and better to use other software, as its faster /easier. Im trying to use 'free ' software, but will invest if needs be. Many thanks in advance for anybody who can help me. Hopefully some of the answers will help others.
