Some days back I got Windows Movie Maker 2 and Winwows Media Player 9 Software and installed over my Windows XP Professional (Version 5.1 build 2600.xpclient.010817-1148).
Capturing movie from my Sony HC30 MiniDV was very good. Editting the movie I created a CD size 603 MB WMV File with bitrate 1500.
Both the original captured and edited movie play fine on Winwows Media Player 9.
When I tried to Copy to CD through Win XP (Roxio based burning utility) an image file created and CD burning activity appears to be performed successfully ( Red light of my Samsung CD-RW SW-248B indicate this). CD burning successful appears. Then CD Media ejects. I found the CD is blank. Nothing has been written.
The same problem occurs even with Nero Burning ROM software verson 5.5.
However the CD writer works fine (burning) with other type of Data, MP3 files. CD is properly burnt.
There is no problm with reading.

Can any one solve why the Cd writer does not burn WMV files? :tazz:

The following help topic is available in Windows Movie Maker 2
"About saving a movie
After you have completed editing your project in Windows Movie Maker, you can save it as a movie. You can share your movie with others by saving it to a recordable CD, sending it as an attachment in an e-mail message, sending it to a video hosting provider on the Web, or recording it to a tape in a DV camera."


From the above it appears that DVD may not be necessary.

I am not sure whether DVD burning is necessary for a WMV video file of 603 MB size with a bitrate of 1500.

After all 603 MB file can well fit into a CD of 650 or 700 MB capacity.

Can you confirm if i should try a DVD burning and CD burning are unsuitable?
