Hi,

I'm trying to convert my Movie Maker slid show to media I can play on a
DVD player. I realize I need to convert an .avi format to MPEG1 or MPEG2.
When I attempt to save my Project as a DV-AVI this option does not appear in
the drop down box, just the MM format. How to I save my project as a DV-AVI
(or .avi) so that I can convert to MPEG. When I attempt to save my project
on a CD, Movie Maker tells me it can't find a recordable device even though
I have both a CD and DVD burner in my machine.

Also, because I'm displaying still pictiures only will I get better quality
images using VCD or and SVCD format instead of MPEG?

Thanks very much for your help.

Glenn.

Do you have MovieMaker 2 (included in SP2)...... if you do, you do NOT save
the Project but choose Save to My Computer..... and then you check the box
"Other Options".... then DV-AVI will be shown.

follow up to the previous. Can I save several short movies onto one DVD, or
would I be better off splicing them together into one long movie? Will hte
movie I make onto a DVD from my computer be playable in a DVD player attached
to my TV?

thanks,
