Question about Pioneer (DVR-K16) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

2 Answers

I burnt a video to a DVD+R DL but not playing on my DVD player?

I am using windows movie maker with OS vista to edit my home video (cousin wedding video) and it is about 2.5 hrs long and burn't to DVD+R DL 8.5GB which it did burn successfully. But when I tried to play the disc from NEC dvd player it did not regonise the disc.

WHY is this so. In the past I have successfully burn other video to disc but using DVD-R 4.7GB and plays on my dvd player not problem.

Am I using the wrong disc? Should I have formated the disc first?

    Tim,



    Will I lose video quality when I compress the video to 4.7GB dvd? If so is it noticeable to the viewers?

Hi Tim,

Thank you for the tip and I'll try this tonight. Before I left home this morning I am currently re-burning it to DVD-R 8.5GB (it took 5 hrs to burn).

I will try DVD shrink method.

You don't need to format the disc, as it does this during the burn process. What you may find is that your NEC dvd player does not play DVD+R. If you can, re-burn the video on a DVD-R 8.5GB.

You can also compress the video to fit on 4.7GB dvd. Download a program called DVD Shrink 3.2. Put the disc you burnt in the drive, and run DVD Shrink. This will analize the film, and all you need to do is click on Re-Author and lower the compression. It even has a line to show how big the video will be on the disc. On a 4.7GB dvd, you don't want this any higher than 4,430MB.

Hope those work

Tim

    Hi Rick,



    Yes, you will lose some quality. I have been using DVD Shrink for a few years now, and although I know the film has lost quality, I have never noticed, nor has anyone else I know. The way compression works in DVD Shrink is backwards (100% compression means no compression, basically you would keep it the same). You can always do a Deep Analasis when using DVD Shrink, this can take awhile, but does have better results.



    I have even shrunk the 2-disc extended version of Lord of the Rings (12GB without compression), to fit a mini-dvd (700MB)!! With amazing results.



    Anyway, happy burning, and I know you wont look back after using it.

After preparing video cd in windows movie maker it cannot be played in my philips dvd player why? i have o/s window vista home edition.tell me the correct solu tion for this problem.


did you "close" or "finalize" the VCD? that's what makes the cd most compatible with all other players. you'd be surprised how many burners don't have that available setting as the "default" setting. also note some of the older, and/or more expensive DVD players have problems with some VCDs. sometimes the newer and cheaper models are more compatible friendly.

Hi,
You might have received a CD along with your Kodak Purchase.. There should be a movie player that Kodak provides along with its camera, try installing that software and that should resolve the issue.
Please let me know if that helps :)

Can't record audio


I have converted home videos on my PC this way. I have a Sony camcorder whose output connects
to my firewire card in the PC. I also use windows Movie maker. While it is recording, I don't hear the audio. After saving the file and playing it back, I hear the audio, along with seeing the movie. Windows movie maker allows me to stop, start, and record the movie. It has complete control over the
Sony camcorder by using the firewire port on the PC.

Can Not Transfer Video to Computer


The Samsung web site has a 32-bit Vista driver but no 64-bit driver. Come on, it's 2009 for God's sake!

FEAR NOT:

For Vista (or any OS), first FINALIZE* the mini-disk using your Samsung camera. FINALIZING creates a DVD out of your mini-disk. You can put that in your computer and it will play just like any DVD. If you want to edit your movies, your mini-DVD has .vob (movie) files on it.

Movie Maker won't import a .vob file so you'll have to convert it to .avi using a third-party conversion tool. I use Need4Video for around $50. I think there's free ones out there too.

And that's how I spent my summer vacation.

there is no problems about your system. Its maybe your systems is lack media "codecs" that enhance your DVD files or Movies to play. maybe you should download any HD dvd codecs and install to your system. or may search google the "media player classic" and use as your player or VLC player preety cool player for almost movies.
