Windows Movie Maker will only publish to DVD (barely)

    When I try to publish a video file from Window Movie Maker to recordable CD, I get an error message saying "CD BURNER NOT FOUND", although the burner's there and functioning perfectly. When I try to publish to a file in my computer, WMM crashes altogether. It WILL publish to a DVD (through opening Windows DVD Maker), but on end credits it cuts off the last letter of every line! AAUUGGGH. Where do I start to fix any of this?

    Thanks for any help.

  2. As far as the cutting off something that's because you exceeded the
    "safe" area boundary. See below near the bottom of page for
    illustration.

    Also Google 'overscan' and 'underscan'.

    Better video editors like Vegas include a dotted line boundary that
    toggles between being off or on which overlays the preview window so
    you can see if you're out of bounds or not. General rule, stay at
    least 10% in from the edge for any titles and hot links you want to
    click on. If or not that is enough depends totally on the TV you view
    it on. All are a little different.
