Windows 7: W7 DVD maker

If WMM allows burning i wonder why they even bothered with WDVDM ? Can i assume my best bet would be to D/L WMM and use that instead of WDVDM, and if so will i no longer have the same widescreen issue as I did with WDVDM?

It is WLMM - Windows Live Movie Maker, not the older WMM.

I cannot answer that because I am not sure what the cause of your problem is.

WLMM does not output in a DVD format. WDVDM converts movie to DVD format.

What gave you that idea? LOL...

I'm just following instructions found on the web. Running it through Windows Live Movie Maker turned the 798 MB avi into 5.8GB wmv, and another time saving a project file did not good whatsoever.

All I know is any widescreen avi I open in Windows DVD Maker comes out as 4.3 all scrunched up.

Google "no widescreen with Windows DVD Maker" you'll understand.

When and if you do please post here.

I've throughly researched the problem and although some say if you encode it with Windows Movie Maker (2.6) and/or Windows Live Movie Maker and open that file with Windows DVD maker it will work. I've also seen just opening the project file from Movie Maker will work but from where I sit WDVDM will not open Movie Maker project files.

I think you are right. I now remeber that the DVD I once made played on the computer but not on the DVD player. Glad you added that comment. Since I usually use DVD Flick, it escaped my (bad) memory.
