Making DVD player Disc with regular CD-R Drive

Does anyone know how to burn a CD-R disc of video that can be read in a standard component DVD player?
Looks like there would be room for 20 or 30 minutes of DVD video. How do you do it?

  1. DVDs and VCDs are totally different. You cannot make a "DVD" from a regular CDR. You will need a DVD writer and DVD disc.

    As for VCDs, many burning programs offer a "wizard" to help you. Easy CD Creator and Nero both have this.

  2. ya you'll have to convert the dvd video to VCD somehow

    The more I know the more I know I don't know
  3. you can do it, kinda. You need dvd authoring software. like DVDit!
  4. Thanks Rob but that was NOT what I was asking about!

    I was asking about the ability to burn say 20 minutes of video onto a REGULAR CD-R disc. I thought I made that very clear, but oh well!

    There are software packages out there that offer to do this.

    Example: DVD-COPY 3.0

    Presumably they do this by writing a short amount of VCD type data to a regular CD-R.
  5. Thank you - I will try to learn more about that then!
  6. OUCH!! I don't HAVE $600.00 for it though!

  8. If it's on a CD, it's not a DVD, it's a VCD. Enough said.

  11. No no no, you do not need a dvd writer to do what he is asking!

    I suggest you go to <A HREF="" target="_new"></A> for some free capturing/converting/editing options. I went there and found everything I needed from start to finish. Burnt the first few episodes of '24' onto a cd-r using VCD format with NERO. Good luck.
