Re: Saving in DVD format

The DVD format is VOB. In the Windows Movie Maker you can save movies as DV-AVI, but in order to burn them onto a DVD disc you should convert them into VOB files using burning software (for example- Nero).

I need a 25-character product key for microsoft office home and student 2007 to load in my laptop please?

If your are not very particular in using MS office there is a very easy answer. Forget this MS office thing. Download Click the link below
It is absoultely free. And works way better than MS office in my opinion. You don't need to search around for a product key. However, it saves a doucment in .odt format instead of your regular .doc format. But there is no need for worry. If you need to send a file to anyone who can only read a .doc file open office provides you the option to save it in .doc format. Which solves the problem if any. Try it once an you may never think of MS office ever. Open office also gives you the option of saving a document directly into PDF format. So any one who recieves it cannot edit it, if you want uneditable documents to be sent to somebody. With MS office you need to buy a new software to achieve this. More money wasted. Like wise XL/ presentations/database type documents are saved in the open document formats, but open office gives you the option to save all of these in the MS office default formats. It has much better selection of fonts and clipart/galleries too.Good luck and have fun.

How to edit Media Center Recordings

Easiest FREE way I've found to edit Recordings made in Windows Media Center is done using Windows Live Movie Maker (Part of the Windows Live Essentials Free Downloads)
I have found that there is some technique involved in making successful edits of the recording.
  1. Open the recording you want to edit in Movie Maker, click save and name the save file what you wish (This file just stores your edit markers and makes no changes to the original recording)
  2. Since most recordings have some overlap, you first need to find the actual beginning and end of the recording, under tools, mark the start and end points using the buttons labeled as such. Click SAVE
  3. Editing the commercials is done in a similiar manner. Browse thru the recording to the start point of the commercial, under tools, click the SPLIT button, then browse to the end of the commercial segment, click split again. (This separates a the commercial portion from the rest of the recording) Right click the commercial segment, Click Delete on the drop down menu and that commercial is deleted (Note the run time is adjusted to the removal point) Click save and repeat on all other commercials.
  4. Once editing is complete, you should have about 22 minutes for a half hour show or 43 minutes for an hour show. Click Save
  5. Here is where I drove myself crazy till I learned the trick. Once edits are saved, CLOSE movie Maker. I don't know exactly why, but I spent a week learning that no matter what I did, 90% of the time when I tried to create movie, movie maker would LOCK UP. Trial and error eventually proved that if I made my edits, then Saved and closed Movie Maker. The re-opened Movie Maker and opened the edit file, that I could then Create Movie successfully every attempt. Click File, Create Movie, and choose your format. (I use widescreen) Saving process is slow, about the length of the show or 1% per minute. This creates a .WMV file about 1/3 the size of the original.
  6. If you want to compress the file even more you can use an encoder to convert the file from WMV to a compressed format (I prefer AVI) I use SUPER © from

To select a video you would like to convert hit the Browse... button next to the Input File Name field. In the opened Windows Explorer window browse for the necessary video file:


Note: when your input is a DVD disc, you will need to select the path to your source file: X:\Video_TS\Video_TS.IFO. "X" stands for your DVD-ROM or the hard disk drive folder where your DVD is stored. Please see the online help section to find more on burning DVDs to other video formats.

Step 3: Set up the conversion parameters
Click the To DVD button on the main panel. In the list of video disc types (Profile) select one of the preset profiles.

Note: when you select a location for your output video file, you should save the file to your personal computer HDD.

Step 5: Create a menu for burning DVD
In case you convert your files into a DVD format, the program will let you create a DVD menu so that you could navigate through your disc easily using it. First of all you need to put the markers indicating the beginning of the chapters of your DVD menu. To do it switch into the editing mode using the Edit button on the AVS Video Converter main panel. The following window will be opened:


To add markers place the mouse cursor within the Timeline where a chapter should start and click the Add button located at the Markers Panel.

After all the markers are added click the Ok button to save the changes you have made and close the Edit Input File(s) window. After that you can start editing your DVD Menu.
Click the Menu button on the AVS Video Converter main panel.


Switch to the main menu or a chapter tab and select one of the style presets for your menu or assign your own picture by clicking the Change Background button.

You can move the marker by dragging it along the Timeline, add a new one or delete them using the appropriate button.
After you add all the chapters and when you are satisfied with the result, close the Menu Editor window and start converting your video.

Step 6: Convert your DVD files
After you have set up all the conversion parameters, hit the Convert Now! button to start conversion.

When process is over the following window will appear, where you should click Burn to Disc...: for burning dvd

Step 7: Burning DVD onto a disc
Insert a blank DVD into your computer optical disc drive. Make sure that the disc is compatible with your drive.

You can select the necessary disc drive if you have several, refresh it and mark the Verify disc check-box to make sure the disc is recorded correctly.

Now click the Start burning! button to begin the recording. Note, that if the disc is not empty you will be offered to erase it. If you do not want to do that, you can eject the disc and use another one instead.
After the burning dvd is over the disc will be ejected automatically. Note, if you checked the Verify disc, the recording will take a little longer depending on the size of the output files as the program will need time to verify them.
Now you can watch your recorded home video DVD on your Home DVD Player!

You will have to boot of the XP install disk and reformat a FULL NTFS format, first, that will enable you to wipe the drive and install XP. To save an email, or any file to a flash drive, simply copy/paste or drag and drop onto the drive, the drive must be Formatted first, format FAT32. OR when asked for location to save, point it to the flash drive as normally done.

Hi, this is just extension to previous problem. I've decided that I'm going to reinstall windows xp home edition on a purchased xp home edition disk as my friend doesn't have the original disks. His system...

I would not try saving the drivers from the failing system since they could be contributing to the problem. Go ahead and save your friends data files, reload XP and then use a utility like DriverAgent from Phoenix Technologies ( to search for the latest drivers for your friends system. This will ensure that you have the latest drivers.

My new Sony Optiarc AD-7221A DVD drive won't work

for your old sony drive that wont open...

look fort a small hole, like a little bigger than a pinhole, in the front panel of the drive. if you can find this hole, stick a straightened-out paperclip or something similar in the hole, and gently force it in, and this should open the cd drive.

a page file error has to do with ram saving to and reading from the hard drive, using a portion of the hard drive as back-up virtual ram. perhaps there is a bad sector on the hard drive, or some other sort of error with either the hard drive or ram to cause the "page file error" and the inability to play dvd's.

if you can get that old drive to work, that may be your best bet.
