Windows Vista Product Guide screencasts – DVD Maker and DVD Menus

In addition to Windows Vista Movie Maker, Windows Vista provides a great new tool to allow you take some creative advantage of your DVD burners.  This tool is very easy to use and can really take your digital media and turn them into well produced DVD’s!

Windows DVD Maker is only available in Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Ultimate, .  This also allows you to take your digital media, either from your movies or photo galleries and simply import them into a new project and the burn your DVD.,

DVD Maker publishes directly to MPEG-2 format, enabling you to burn DVDs directly from your video camera. Windows DVD Maker also supports a variety of publishing styles for your movies, focused on highlighting your content and creating a customized look and feel.

As a bonus you get not just one screencast but two! 

In these two screencasts I take a look at DVD maker as well as a short talk about the menus!

    Every time I try to create a DVD using DVD Maker, it tells me:

    [Window Title]

    Windows DVD Maker

    [Main Instruction]

    Cannot create the DVD


    Invalid class string


    Not very helpful. Better than the event log, which says:

    "The Dvd Maker engine returned an error code (-2147221005) when burning the disc."

    Of course, error -2147221005 is 0x800401f3, which means "Invalid class string".

    Sadly, I’m stuck. I can’t burn DVDs on my new Thinkpad.
