How to Burn Widescreen DVD's in DVD Maker

Hi there, after wasting two DVD's I decided to seek some more help. I am
using the Windows DVD maker on myn laptop. I have the 16:9 option
selected, and am still getting 4:3 end results. The movie file IS
widescreen, but the program insists on squishing it into 4:3 regarldess
of the settings. I have yet to find any other places in the program to
set aspect ratio and am quite frustrated. Another glitch is the opening
title screen that the program is creating. It shows in the preview as
having film clips, however, the finished product when played in the DVD
player only has solid green blocks appearing where the pics should have
been.

Any help would be most appreciated,

Thanks!
K

Re: How to Burn Widescreen DVD's in DVD Maker
The standard aspect ratio for DVDs is 4:3. The MS DVD maker does not appear
to have the ability to create anamorphic DVDs.
You have to use your player software to do a linear stretch to display the
recordings properly on a widescreen TV.
