Hello,

I have burnt a DVD-RW with Windows Live Movie Maker and tried to play it on my Panasonic TV. Reading the TV manual then I realised that it needed to be in 16:9 aspect (wide screen) so I tried to burn it again but the DVD is not recognised. I've tried deleting the file using Roxio DVD burner but this won't recognise the DVD either. I'ce actually tried this with two different DVDs as the first time I saved the WLM Project, rather than the Video file.

When you use a DVD-RW you must finalize the disc before it will play in another device. Then to reuse the disc you must format it again.

I thought tha Windows LIve Movie Player software did that automatically when you chooseto savethe file as a movie, rather than just saving it as a project. Is there another option in WLMP that I need to use, do you know ?

Do you mean that I can't use a Rewritable DVD ? Do I have to use a "write once only" DVD ?

Ignore 'macleonard' (and his other 7 personas) He has absolutely no knowledge on the subject matter. He lives only to spam the forum.

Whenever you use a rewritable disc you must finalize it if you want it to be readable in a different PC or device. To finalize you must go into the Explorer, right click on the drive letter, and select Finalize.
