recording DVD straight from SDHC chip

Could someone help me with the step by step procedure to get a DVD that will play in a home DVD player from a SDHC chip in your card reader to a DVD using Windows DVD maker? I have bought convertion programs, spent hours and hours and I am stuck. It shouldn't be this hard but I am the one to blame. I am not doing something correct.

 

Thank you for your help,

 

Tom

If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, open DVDMaker

Then click the button to 'Add Items'

Navigate to the SD card  and the folder with the pictures in it – usually DCIM…

You probably want to change your view to medium or large icons, then you can select the pictures you want .. Ctrl Click to select multiple … Click Add

Click Next

Choose a menu style from the right (this might take some experimenting, pick one, then click 'Preview' at the top, notice the 'Play' link)

When you have a menu style you like, put a DVD (we recommend DVD-R, maybe +R if you're including video, but not RW) in the drive and click Burn.

The resulting disk *should* be viewable on a TV/DVD player.

Sometimes DVD players of different ages can be problematic.  See this past Geeks on Tour article on Burning DVDs: http://www.geeksontour.com/new…..080421.htm

Let me know how it goes … this could be a good topic for a 'Show-Me-Video'

Chris,

Thank you for your help. I am trying to make a home video straight from the SDHC card to a DVD that can be viewed on our home DVD player. The reason I want to do that is so I will not have to store the recorded video on my hard drive. It just goes straight to DVD and done but I am having very little success doing so. I bought both – R and + R DVD's so I am ready for what ever I will need. I have been using Movie Maker but would like to use DVD Maker because I am not editing. That being said, what would be the step by step for that process? Same as your last post? That would be great if you could do a “Show-Me-Video”! I am making videos of soccer games and trying to make a DVD of each game for me and one for the coach to teach the players from so I need to be able to do it fairly quickly and not just a data disk because he views it on a big screen.

Thanks for your help,

 

Tom
