    I have JVC GZ-MC500E camera which record on mini drive in MOD file format.
    Camera has option to record with pixel aspect ratio 1.433 (16:9 format).

    When I play recorded tracks in PowerDVD it works fine, picture is in 16:9
    format, but when I make DVD with software that comes with camera (CyberLink
    PowerDirector), DVD is recorded in 4:3 format. Anyone knows why and how to
    solve this problem ?

    Also when I import these MOD files in Adobe Premiere Elements, files are
    also recognized as 4:3 format.

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Thanks in advance,

    i don't even use adobe premier but rest assured it's a default setting
    within adobe somewhere on the output. most pro editors work similiar. look
    for output settings and within the settings parameters there will a check
    box, drop down, etc. that determines the ouput size configuration.
