This is my first post and I did not see anything on this question on the site so far.

I have recorded some TV shows on my laptop using MCE. I would like to copy them to a DVD to get some space back.

What is the extension for MCE files and what would I change it to so it can copy the file to a cd or dvd with an extension that would run on my regular DVD player?

Does Digital Media Converter do this?

MCE or Media Center Edition creates video and audio recordings in DVR-MS format (extension is ".DVR-MS").

If you try changing the DVR-MS extension, it will not play. You can only play DVR-MS files on Windows Media Center Edition and Windows XP with Service Pack 2 computers.

To play DVR-MS files on a standard DVD player, you need to convert it to the MPEG 2 format. Then you can use any DVD burning software to create the DVD. Digital Media Converter supports converting DVR-MS files to many different media formats (such as WMV, AVI, MPEG 2, MOV etc.)
