OK, you seem to have several questions, so maybe I should start by listing the steps I take to make a DVD, and you can see where your steps differ.
1. Upload from camcorder to computer. This results in several .AVI files on my computer hard drive.
2. Use my editing software to create a movie from the individual .AVI files, and save it as a .AVI file (or maybe as .MPG file)
3. Use my DVD authoring software to convert the movie into files for a DVD, and burn the DVD. (Note: depending on your authoring software, it might accept .AVI or .MPG as input.)
4. Check what’s in the DVD. 2 directories: AUDIO_TS (probably an empty directory), and VIDEO_TS (with files ending in .BUP, .IFO, and .VOB .)
How close is this to what you’re doing?
(BTW, your editing software and authoring software MIGHT be combined in one package.)
