Subject: Re: .mov --> .mpeg --> DVD conversion
Alexandre Lehmann's advice is really the best option. However in the case that you do not have any other choice, and considering that you managed to get a tiny hint of the mpeg file to show on a DVD player, I would consider converting the original .mov file with another converter before giving up. This is just in case the mpeg you made with Adobe Elements is flawed somehow.
The above link will give access to the most powerful and high quality (and FREE) conversion software that I know of.
Another important thing to remember when you are making your DVD in your chosen softeware, is to look for the data bit rate setting and set this number to no greater than 7Mbit/s. Not to try and be too technical either, but depending on the size and length of the video (mpeg file that you are starting with) you may need to set this rate even lower. Hopefully your DVD software gives you some indication of where to find these data rate settings.
Best of luck,

>> Dear Listserv;
>> I don't know if this inquiry is appropriate for this listserv, but I am hoping someone can instruct or guide me on how to solve this problem. Thus far, those whom I consulted (or material and converters I downloaded from internet) have not been helpful.
>> I received a movie of a demonstration that someone recorded in .mov format. I need to burn a DVD of this movie clip, but Adobe on my computer cannot read .mov files, so I converted the .mov file using Adobe Elements (4.0) on my computer to a .mpeg file. The movie demo is saved on my computer (as a .mpeg) and I can play the movie clip on my computer and even burn a DVD of it, but when I place the DVD into the DVD player, there is an error message that reads "disk error".
>> I also converted the .mov file using Adobe Elements (4.0) to a .mov file and burned that to a DVD, but the DVD player cannot play the movie clip and the same "disk error" appears. I downloaded the ImTOO MPEG to DVD converter 6 off the internet and followed the instructions to no avail. At most, all I got on the DVD player monitor/screen is a small framed picture of the movie in the upper left corner. When I press the remote to "play" the DVD, I get the same "disk error" message.
>> Any advice or guidance is appreciated. I hope this makes sense.
