Hokay . . . on a Sony Vaio PCV-RZ32G (Pentium 4, 2.6Ghz, 512M RAM) running Windows XP w/SP2 plus hopefully all available updates for the programs mentioned hereunder I've edited 4 clips which run 2 to 4 minutes each using Windows Movie Maker. After 2 days of trying, I still can't burn them to DVD using Click to DVD 1.4 (which came with the Vaio). Click to DVD only accepts .mpg and .avi files. So in WMM, I saved the files with the format option DV-AVI(NTSC). This file type loads into Click to DVD, but when I hit Preview, after a couple of minutes of converting, etc. I get this error message: If I try to burn instead of preview, I get these: Hoping I could use freeware to simply convert the file types into something acceptable to Click to DVD (and also hoping to do it with freeware), I downloaded Stoik Converter. Unfortunately, Stoik's options for the conversion output are a mile long . . . In addition, Stoik offers Profile options -- especially confusing are the audio options which come up in that bottom box: Now, there are these "Save Movie" options in Windows Movie Maker: If anyone here can please tell me: 1) which format option in Windows Movie Maker "Save Movie" is best -- that is, would be of the highest quality AFTER it's converted in Stoik, and 2) which format option in Stoik's Output menu is also the highest quality AND will actually be accepted by Click to DVD, . . . then maybe I won't have any more of these bald patches on my head from where I've torn out my hair over this. And if the above method of converting the files with Stoik is for some reason not feasible, my last resort is to go and buy a DVD authoring program (in a hurry). Your opinions as to the best program would be appreciated. Preferably any new program would cost as little as possible yet allow me to import a jpeg for a custom background on the DVD menu (something Click to DVD will not allow). Many thanks.
