Here, If u write into Blank cd\dvd using nero software, it will show the datails about ur disc status of remain sapce and used space.

And if u already write a files into on disc,
select ur combo drive, see thats properties.

I'm trying to create a DVD from a video I took on my camera. I'm using InterVideo WinDVD Creator and it lets me get to the part where I burn the DVD and it keeps telling me to insert a disc. What do I do...


Hello,

Make sure that you have a DVD-RW and that you have a blank DVD placed in the drive. You need to also make sure that your program recognizes your DVD-RW.

Finally you can also just burn the image and save it on your computer and then try burning that image to a DVD using a different program like Nero.

Thanks,

Pat

I am unable to format a DVD-RW disc on my Windows XP computer


Typically, you use DVD/CD writing software to write files to the disc.
There is no 'formatting' involved.
If, however, you want to use a DVD/RW disc as a "big floppy" then you need special software for that. What software came with your DVD writer? or You can use free "Nero InCD", -> Download

Hope it helps.

Note**
For OS XP, you must have at least, WinXP Service Pack 2 installed.

I have an older DVD player. COBY DVD-404. I downloaded pictures from my camera to my computer onto a DVD-R disc and then again onto a DVD+RW disc. Neither disc would play on my player. It comes up on...


Your 'old' DVD player is the problem. It is unable to 'read' picture files. Time to put the COBY away and upgrade to a DVD player that can read .jpg, .jpeg images. Most new players do and they are not that expensive.

How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?


You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)

I download video from my flip video, but I cannot burn to DVD-RW...it says to insert CD which I have already done


What CD are you using to Burn then movie?

Get a Blank DV Rewriteable CD (make sure its blank)

Format the DVD CD by right clicking it from Windows Explorer and follow the instructions. (this should not be neccessary especially if its a blank CD)

Use a normal copy and paste from Windows Explorer to copy the movie file or folder into the DVD drive.

this process absolves the issue of media formats and portability. Also most CD DVD Burning Softwares are not compatible with some players.

Won't recognize blank dvd


Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck

check in "device manager" for any hazard warning signs which indicate a problem with either the device or its driver's....to check, go to desktop, right click on "my computer" select properties, hardware tab, click "device manager" and check the list for those devices you mention. From here you can also troubleshoot and update driver if required.
