Windows DVD Maker

I made a dvd with Windows movie maker and modified it with the options.  I did not burn correctly, in fact it made my video choppy and I lost some videos, meaning some of the videos I added did not come out.  On the menu format I selected it shows displays of some of the videos I added to my DVD but does not play in the video itself.  How can I get the videos that are on the feature menu.  I chose the menu style call Reflections.  On the Reflections boxes is where my videos are playing as a preview but not on the dvd I made.  How can I get those previews out of there?

Hi V. Rangel,



·        Where did you copy the videos from for the DVD?

·        What type of videos were you trying to burn?

·        Were you able to play those videos on your computer before burning them to the DVD?


You may not be able to modify the content of the DVD, but what you can do is re-burn the same content (if they are available on the hard drive) on a separate DVD and check if that helps.


If you are burning the files again try to burn the DVD at a slower speed and check if that helps. Follow the link below to change the settings.
