Burning home movies to DVD

by mudfish67 / January 5, 2005 9:35 AM PST

I need some suggestions. I am running WinXP and I just installed an ATI x800 Pro. I need a DVD burner and the software to burn my home video movies to DVD.
What type of softwar is best for doing this? Also, what are the better DVD burners out there? Thanks for any help that you can send my way.

But I will tell you I use many brands of DVD recorders at the office. No name has a distinct advantage.

For software we use Ulead's software, DVDSANTA and a few others.

Is the software that you mentioned good for the video to DVD. I have talked to some people and they tell me that some software is better at coping DVD's then it is at capturing home movies and transferring them to DVD's.

I did set up a web page describing some of my experiences at:

In my article the technical aspects are not stressed that much. I do however feel that a good vid capture card is important. Much of the software on the market is good but very clumsy to use.
