    Windows DVD Maker

    We have Windows DVD Maker for Vista and Win 7, what do I use to make dvd videos in Win 8 ?

    Someone please give me a link to down load a dvd maker for Win 8 ?
    Or, can I go downloading Windows DVD Maker from the web ?
    Will it be compatible with Windows RP ?

    Thank you.

    I had a similar question,
    stuff worked in 7 ... not in 8

    In 8, dvd maker was removed in favor of movie maker.
    I tried other programs, none would work in 8.

    A program is available if you
    are willing to buy it:

    Cyberlink Power Producer is compatible with 8
    and is good for producing DVD titles.


    Unfortunately, with 8 (beta),
    there may be unresolvable problems that will occur
    if you install incompatible DVD makers
    either before or after installing CPP.

    The program may not function properly until a clean install of 8 occurs.
    This is probably another glitch with 8 (beta).

    Simply uninstalling other failed programs does not seem to be enough.
    Maybe creating a restore point may help but I did not try that.
    I always keep saved good images for restore before trying unknown software.

    Also note that CPP has not been certified as being compatible with 8 (beta) either
    and may not produce error free DVD titles...

    review update (as of June 2012):

    I have had some success (using CPP) with producing DVD titles,
    ... today ... now producing error free DVD titles ...
    using software conversion to VOB format ...
    using CPP to create the DVD title (burn to disk)
    with menus and scene selections.
