Default Trouble using DVD Flik/ Burning DVD

Hi All,
I am having trouble burning a dvd using DVD Flik. Hopefully someone has the answer. Here is where I am at.

I own a ZI8 from Kodak. I take video of my baby I am told it is only directly compatible with Apple, not Microsoft, because it is .mov (not certain). Therefore I needed to convert it. (as I was told)

Anyway, I downloaded DVD Flik a while back and had been using it to make DVDs that will play in my DVD player and also ona computer.

However just last night I went to use DVD flick, and when I get into the part where I choose
> project setting
> burning

It no longer gives me the option to 'burn project to disc'. The radio button is grayed out. I can now only 'Create ISO image'.

So my questions

-Is this something new to DVD FLIK?
-Can I use 'create an ISO image' to burn a DVD that will play in the DVD player
-Have I done something wrong?

I am not very tech saavy, and was psyched when I figured out (with the help of you tube tutorials) how to use this. Now I am bummed. I have been using this to make DVD's my 10 month old, and want to continue.

I uploaded DVD flik to another computer and checked it out. The same thing is happening. (Although on the second computer I did not even add and video footage. I just looked at the radio buttons)

Any help on the dvd flik would be appreciated. If I can't get answere on this, then my next round of questions will involve finding another solution.

This can happen sometimes if DVD Flick doesn't properly detect your burner as a burner. I think you're probably better off by using the "Create an ISO image" option, which then creates an .iso file that you can burn with ImgBurn.

In fact, DVD Flick uses ImgBurn to do the burning as well, but it includes an old version, and you can get the latest version here:

Here's a guide on how to burn image files using ImgBurn:

If you're using DVD+ media, setting the book type may also offer better compatibility with older DVD hardware:

Default I will give it a try

Thanks for the info. Strange that DVD flick might not be detecting my burner, b/c previously it did. Oh well.

Your Instructions seem detailed. Hopefully they are clear enough for a computer fatfinger like myself. THX

Since I do this is on my home computer I will give it a try this weekend, and let you know how it went. If you could check back, I might have some other questions. But hopefully it goes well.
