Burning A Dvd

My cousin gave me a DVD recorded on a camcorder which I now have in my computer. I want to burn it to disc, but find when I put it into a DVD player I can only hear it and can't see anything. On my computer it works fine. Does anyone know how to resolve this niggling problem. Thanks

You need to rip that thing into some format (mp3 or ogg for audio, etc). Or the other way is get 'acetoneiso' may need to install many other packages.

maybe the camcorder recorded it into a format that the DVD player doesn't understand (which is anything other than MPEG-2), such as MPEG-4 or DivX or whatever...
