Default Simple Question from a Newbie who needs alot of help.

This is probably a really stupid question but please forgive me, I'm a newbie. I want to know if I can make a DVD with only a CDR Drive, no DVD player on my PC. I guess I would have to buy a few DVD's and then some software. Is this correct?
I appreciate all the help you can give.

no, this simply cannot be done without a dvd burner...

since dvd's have 9 tracks, and cd's only have 1, you couldn't even read a dvd in your cdrw drive. but you can turn a divx movie into a VCD which is like a dvd in a cd. if you want to do that, use tmpgenc to encode and nero to burn.

you're welcome . If you want to make a vcd, go to www.dvdrhelp.com
and look around there. I find it to be very useful.

I want to transfer my videos from my camcorder. Will VCD be the same quality as the original or will there be any degredation in quality? I have seen some VCDs so I suspect there will be. Am I correct?

Thanks alot for all your help.

you will probably lose quality if you have long videos (50+ minutes)

you can increase the bitrate or resolution if you have a short video and want to maximize quality to get the most out of your cd.

Were you saying like you were going to play them on your TV them record them with your camcorder? Just make sure your lighting and white balence is right otherwise they look horible
