    As I understand it, the disks are already DVD disks, only the 8cm minidisks. They should play like any other DVD disk in your DVD player. Make sure they are properly located in the smaller well in the DVD drawer.

    To get as much data on the disk, most camcorder manufacturers use some form of data compression - usually mpeg2, so if your media player doesn't have the proper codecs installed, you may get a 'can't play' error.

    These are some useful links to software that will help convert and create playable DVD's.

    DVDFlick
    CDBurnerXP
    DVD Shrink
    DVDFab

    Good Luck.
