  • 1. silent home movie help please
    hi everyone I was wondering if after I made a dvd in my standalone player/recorder of a silent home movie, can I put it in my computer and add background music. I have WIN XP home Interwood Windvd Creator also I have Muvee Auto Producer My stand alone is a Liteon Player/Recorder, which I copied a VHS home movie to a DVD+RW disk. It plays fine in my computer but sure would be nice to have some background music. I am wanting to make copies for my kids as gifts. If so how would I do it? Thanks in advance.
  • 2. Copying VHS tapes to DVD discs
    I recently purchased a JCV mini-DV camcorder with firewire connection. While attempting to copy VHS tapes from VCR to digital camcorder passing through to PC using a firewire cable Movie Maker gives me the following message "No Tape Detected" and I cannot go any further with the recording process. I am using a JVC GRD-72U mini-DV camcorder. I have used the Movie Maker to capture and edit other videos that are stored on the camcorder tapes but having no success with the pass through process.
  • 3. What is HIGHMAT?
    Once I saved my movie to CD, I looked at the files on the CD and see a folder called "HIGHMAT" what does the files in the folder do? How important are they?

When I burn a video from moviemaker to a cd, it will play 
fine on my computer but will only play the sound on other 
computers (eg my laptop). Anyone know why and what to do? 
Many thanks,

Do you have the required codecs installed on the other computer?

Hint: the answer is no.

2.Plays Some DVDs, Won't Play Others

Recently I've tried playing "The Phantom of the Opera" on my computer, and it 
wouldn't pull anything up. Later, I tried playing another movie called "Red 
Eye", and the same thing happened. But when I put in "Pirates of the 
Caribbean", everything worked fine. What's more, my computer froze when I 
tried playing the other dvds, and one of them even got scratched up in the 
process. I'm not sure what's happening, but does anyone have any suggestions?
