I can only make a few suggestions (shhh! I've only experimented ).

In what format do you make/publish the video? What is the size of the file/s? If you have FAT32 formatted partitions it may have an effect (the limit is a file size of 4GB).

After you "publish" the video, can you open it and play it?

If the + and - DVDs are the same brand, try another.

I would recommend you use a dedicated burning program (Nero, Easy DVD, Sonic, etc). If you don't have one, try this one:

Edit: If you are trying to burn in "video" style, try just burning it as a data disk.

I probably wouldn't worry about that.

I have used Windows Maker and it does work well. Try this, save your movie to your favorite easy to find location. Save it as a .wmv.

Now I use TMPGEnc DVD to make my DVD's. But mattman is right, Sonic MyDVD, NERO (I've used both with good results) is probably the way to go.

If you wanna try a freeware try VSO DivxtoDVD
http://www.afterdawn.com/software/vi...todvd_free.cfm

I've used it in the past also. Good Media is everything, I usually don't recommend brands, but I've had the best luck with Verbatum DVD+R. My second favorite has been Sony DVD+R

As Ranger SVO said, you probably won't need to worry about it. For information, it is the way a drive is formatted. It has evolved over the years. Your Vista drive (partition) won't be formatted in FAT32, it will be formatted in the NTFS system that can handle very large files.

Where you might find that drives are formatted as FAT32 is on external drives. Most come formatted as FAT32, as far as I know. So if you are using external hard drives, memory sticks, etc, formatted as FAT32, they won't be able to handle files larger than 4GB, if you reformat those drives as NTFS, they may be unable to work with any software supplied by the manufacturer.

If you want to see the formatting (File System), type "computer" into the Start Search bar, open Computer Management and go to Storage -> Disk Management. The Help menu has information.

Probably nothing that will concern you, unless it gets to a stage where you cannot find any other reason why the system won't work.

i open my Windows Movie maker and open the project im working on.

the on the top i click on were it says "Publish movie" by were u have the "import Media" option
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d2...blishMovie.jpg

then it sends me to a setting screen on were i may choose were i want to have my video published.
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d200/cobra69/were.jpg

after selecting my destination, i goes to another step were u may choose if u would like to compress the files to 2 GB or select the type of format and resolution of the video.
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d2...9/settings.jpg
i chose DVD quality (.wmv)
then i press Publish

the the finishing windows pops up saying that my movie is being publish to my computer (my desktop)
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d2.../finalstep.jpg

but all the sudden a message appears around the 30-50% saying this.
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d2...ra69/error.jpg
i have like 200gb of free space ,and all that other stuff it asked for was good and running..files were inplace, and the destination was never changed.


when i try and burn in into a dvd, it stops enconding around 30-50% with out any type of message saying something is wronge.
the enconding window still shows but it doesnt move!
i had left it over night but nothing happend

The first error message says that it is having trouble accessing the original files or creating the new file.

Check that all the original files can all be played. Are they all in a location that the editor (Movie Maker) can access easily? If they are from different locations I would transfer them to a dedicated folder and not the same place as finished (published) version. I wouldn't be working "on the desktop". If necessary, make "working folders" (maybe in Documents). If they are not going to be kept after finalising the work, I start by calling the working folder Temp which I know can be emptied/deleted later.

Windows Movie Maker is an add-on. It is a basic video editor. If the only selections for making the finished file are .wmv or .avi, you should look for a better editing program. Windows Movie Maker will be OK for putting a few clips together to show to friends, but nothing more serious. A video editing program should have been included with the video camera. If the program is not made for or compatible for Vista, check the information or look for updates at the manufacturer's website.

If you can only work with Windows Movie Maker, as I said, start checking those original files. Make certain they can be played individually, and rather than trying to generate one large published file to begin with, check that they can be edited together in parts.

Investigate the program that Ranger SVO linked to. You will need to do some research on the subject if this is going to be an important project.

[If the original files are different types (eg., .wmv, .avi, .mpeg, etc), look at converting them to the same type before editing.]

It is a "simple" editor. The task that it was required to do may have been too complex and it just "gave up". Because it is simple, it probably doesn't have warnings built-in, like that it could integrate X file with Y file or maybe that the data it was processing was too large.

You may get around it, as I said, by trying to make it's tasks simpler. Video editing does take a lot system resources, doing it on a basic/everyday computer may work up to a point. A specialised video editing computer may be required if you are going to do it seriously.
