Great tip, thanks. I just got a Sony DVD101 camcorder and recorded in Video mode on a Memorex mini DVD-RW but could not play it on a Dell 8200 DVD player. I copied the file to my desktop, changed the extension to .mpg as you suggest and - it played! - using WM Player 10. A little quirky here and there, but what do you want, perfection? I do wonder, though, if I use some other brand of DVD, if it would just play automatically.
