I just bought a Sony Handycam, I can import from the cam and edit with no
issues. The video plays wonderfully from my copmuter. When I burn it to a
CD and play it on my pc or DVD player the Video is slightly choppy with much
lower resulution. I'm gone through some many CD's practicing with burning to
different formats ie. AV-AVI, High qual for local playback, High Qual Large.
It seems I've tried them all... What am I missing?
Also I'm using a fire cable for the transfer.

If you burn it to a CD, all you are making is a VCD or an SVCD... resolution
is by default MUCH lower than if you bought a DVD burner and made a DVD.

Movie Maker does just copies the WMV/AVi directly to a data CD with some
menu application. (This is not a standard VCD/SVCD).

Mr "Frsutrated!!!!" you seem to be sufferring from a slow IDE channel
connecting your CD drive to the computer. Is DMA mode enabled for this
drive?

Hmmm. I think Cari's original response was on the right track... :-(

Need more information about how are you making the CD? What software and
settings are you using?
