I had a VCR recorded as a DVD-RW on a stand alone product(Magnavox, Model CMWR20wv6). I tried to play it on my Television through a Daytek DVD player, but it plays only the sound with no video. I subsequently inserted in my DVD disk drive on Windows XP and it plays the video on Windows Media Player 10. The properties indicate it as being a RM file, which I assume is a Ram file. My question is this, can I used Windows XP to change the outgoing format from RM to another format which most standardized DVD players will accept. By the way on Windows Media Player 10, it only visualizes in black and white. I do have Nero Ultra if that's any help to you at all.
