I make my own VCD's (Video CD) on my Dell computer all of the time and then
play them on my Philips DVD Player (which is connected to my TV, not a
DVD-ROM). I know a lot about these so called "DVD burners" and I must warn
you that not all DVD Players or DVD Roms can support DVD-R (that is the
format of the DVD that the Apples burn). Only a small amount of DVD players
out there can support VCD let alone DVD-R. I know that if people have a
program called "WinDVD" on their PC and a DVD-Rom then they can play VCD's.
I have tons of video equipment laying around the house that I use on a daily
basis and I would be more than happy to make as many VCD's that you wanted
if someone sent the movie to me in a .MOV, .AVI, .MPG file or the VHS tape.
Let me know.
