Why does the video freeze when I try to play a DVD movie on my DVD-RW drive?


this sounds like a codec issue and i've found that reinstalling the media playback software (for example vlc.) may fix this issue.

My recent recorded dvd's are freezing. Not the complete movie, sometimes I watched for a half hour and the rest of the movie starts freezing. Could this be the light scribe dvd super multi drive/CD...


Hi, The problem that you might be getting is with your DVD burner on the computer. Usually there is a time that a mechanical problem occurs especially when you're using it all the time. Have you tried the movies on other players just to check if the copy is good or not? If in case the movie also freezes on other players. It could be the DVD that is malfunctioning already. It may be a substandard DVD that is why it is already freezing up. IF is it ok. you might need to have the DVD burner checked for any mechanical issues like the motor that spins the DVD or the lens that reads the DVD.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

Converting Movies to Psp Format


Hey again, this is a real quick guide for anyone interested to get a movie onto there PSP without all the fluff I have seen elsewhere. I just watched Aftica the Serengeti on my PSP and here's is the lowdown.

Movie - approx 40 minutes - DVD.
Saved to hard drive - 2.6Gig - using DVD.
Decryptor (free program) try Google.
Transferred to AVI format - 377MB - using Super DVD Ripper (9 FREE trial uses) then you must buy.
Transferred to MP4 - 37MB - using the (basically free) Image Convertor 2.

Average movie breakdown - using above as a guide only.
So i'm guessing the average movie may be 4.5Gig for example saved to 800MB.
CONVERTED TO 70-80MB.

OK, use DVD Decryptor to save the movie to your hard drive eg. c:\africa (it will save it for you as described). When completed find the folder c:\africa on your computer and find the vob file in that folder - generally the largest one and right click and play it with your dvd program to see what part it is. If it's the correct movie part you now know that's the one you need.

Once you have located the vob file you want to transfer open DVD Ripper and go to wizard icon. There you will see an icon of VOB to AVI button. Click it and then it will ask to locate the file. Locate the file and click it. It will SCAN THE FILE (just wait till that finishes) a parameter box opens next and just click the arrow. It then askes to choose output file, click the file icon and locate the correct fob file. It then askes for file compression - choose microsoft windows media and then click ok then press the start button. It will now convert the vob into avi format.
(there are also other options ie:dvd to avi etc.) I have only used the vob to avi for this test.

After DVD ripper has transferred the file it will save it to the same folder as the original move was in eg: c:\africa\viteots. Open the file and you will now see an AVI icon containing the movie.

Make sure you PSP is on and in usb mode then Open Image Convertor 2 and press on movie / add to list. For this example I click on c:drive the found the folder Africa and opened it and there was my converted AVI file. Click the file press ok and it will be transferred to your PSP for viewing pleasure.

****Note**** I only converted one VOB file as that's all there was for this particular movie. If you have more then one vob file you may need to try the dvd to avi when you rip. This is just a guide i worked out to compress dvd into the smallest possible file so you can get value out of a 512 card.
