My ultimate goal is to make a DVD to share with family, starting with either my video or using files sent to me to then return a DVD (NO... not a flash drive, this is for people who know how to put a DVD in a drive, and nothing else)

 

Sharing to disc gives a choice of going directly to the burn to DVD function, or the ability to create an ISO file

 

I normally go to an ISO file and then use IMGBURN to have more control over the actual disc writing process

 

While testing PrE with a short timeline (about 12 minutes) I put a CD-R in my drive... and lo and behold, Imgburn wrote the "DVD" ISO to the CD-R

 

So, for testing up to the 700Meg capacity of the CD-R blanks I have, I won't have to use more expensive DVD-R blanks

 

https://www.imgburn.com/ for ISO to disc (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program - DO be sure to uncheck anything you don't want from the "freeware" download site) Imgburn will also write files or folders of your choice to disc

 

NOTE - that movie CD-R plays properly in my computer drive, I have not tested to find out if it will play in a regular DVD player connected to a TV

That's interesting. Please let us know if it works.

I suspect, however, that it may work on some players but not on others.

When burning an iso the program is not looking at the media itself. Its does not care if its a cd, dvd or bd.

That is why you can make an so called avchd disk but requires a bd player as its looking at the contenct and not the disk itself.

 

Couple of months ago I gave all my empty CDs away.

I have a 3 year old Samsung DVD/BD player... gives a "disc format not supported" message

 

That's OK... for my short videos I'll just use my computer drive while testing different program features
