Converting audio tapes to CD

We have managed to record the tapes onto the hard drive, but when we burn the CD's we can only play them on the computer, not on the CD player. They are in Wave sound format. How can we change the format into a readily readable CD. Can anyone help

You would need to change the format from wave to mp3, if the cd player will read mp3's. You should be able to do this with a program like Roxio Creator or Nero. Hope this helps.

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

Step 4: Set up a proper video output file path
Click the Browse... button next to the Output File Name field and select a location on your HDD for the output video file.
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:

If you want to delete some markers select the necessary one clicking it with the mouse. Then use the Remove button from the Markers Panel or right click this marker and select Remove from the express menu. To delete all markers use the Clear All button.
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.

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!

How do I download music/speech from a web page on to a recordable CD?


If you are using Vista, there should be a sound recorder located in the program files/accessories menu. Alternative way would be to connect a microphone and copy the sounds onto your hard drive. Then burn the sound file onto disc.

We have VCR tapes with videos on it we would like to convert them to DVD or CD- how should we do it


I hope that you have plenty of time on your hands. If you do, then you will need a video capture card or tv-tuner USB dongle. Most large computer stores carry a variety of choices. Hook the line-out of the VCR to the TV-tuner or video capture card and use the digital video recording software that came with it to record your video to your hard disk. From here you can edit it with a video editing program and burn the finished product to your DVD or you can burn the raw files to the DVD.

Does not boot up


hi...
Probably a virus, or your windows folder got corrupted. Try to use Knoppix (A linux distrobution that boots from a CD) to get all your data onto a pen drive or external hard drive. Download the Knoppix ISO at Knoppix.com and burn it onto a CD or DVD using MagicISO (magiciso.com). Insert the CD, and you should see the boot screen. Open the file manager, and copy all the files you want to keep from your hard drive to a pen drive or external hard drive. Then, reinstall Windows using a recovery CD (one might have come with your computer). Copy the files back

dot.gif Unable to read a CD-R or other recordable disc. Question: Unable to read a CD-R or other recordable disc.
Answer: Unfortunately this can be a difficult question to answer because of the amount of potential reasons for this issue to occur. Below is a listing of several steps and recommendations that can be taken to help identify the cause of the issue and/or resolve this issue.
Drivers Verify you have the latest drivers installed for the CD-R or recordable drive. There are numerous driver related issues that may cause a CD-R drive or other recordable to stop reading a CD-R disc. If you are running Microsoft Windows verify your drive is properly detected and listed in Device Manager with no conflicts or errors.
If Windows Device Manager detects an error on the drive or if it has other drives listed in Device Manager with errors on them remove the device from Device Manager and reboot the computer to let Windows re-initialize the drive.
If Windows shows no errors, the above steps did not resolve the issue, or you are running a different operating system check with the drive manufacturer for updated drivers. A listing of disc drivers can be found here.
CD-R disk Not all CD-R disks are compatible with all types and speeds of CD-R drives or other recordable drives (especially earlier CD-R drives). Verify the manufacturer gives 100% guarantee for supporting all drives and disc speeds, for example, TDK discs often give a 100% guarantee.
Pre-mastering/Mastering Software Pre-mastering software can sometimes produce incorrect tracks due to bugs. An incorrect ISO image could be generated, or incorrect sub header codes could be recorded in the case of Mode 2 discs. A good way to check whether the incompatibility problems lie with the originating software or with one of the other causes listed above is to test the same disc on several CD-ROM drives. If one drive is capable of reading the disc back correctly, chances are that the problem was not in the mastering, but is one or more of the other factors listed.
Disc is a recordable disc that the drive or player does not support Verify the drive supports the recordable media you are attempting to read. Below are some situations to watch out for.
  • Old CD-ROM or early DVD drive - Some early CD-ROM drives and Gen 1 DVD drives (some of the first DVD drives released) do not support CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs. Not only does this apply to computers but also home entertainment DVD players.
  • CD-RW in CD-R or CD-ROM drive - CD-R drives are incapable of reading CD-RW drives. If you are using a CD-RW disc verify the drive is a CD-ROM or CD-R drive is capable of reading the disc.
  • DVD recordable discs - If you have a DVD recordable disc and are unable to get it to read verify that the DVD drive is not a Gen 1 DVD drive and/or that it supports reading the DVD recordable media you are using. Additionally a standard CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, etc drive is not able to read DVD discs.
Disc was created incorrectly Make sure you're creating the disc properly. For example, a common mistake users make when creating audio CD's that they can listen to in their computer, car, or home stereo is burning the MP3 files or other files directly to the CD as a Data disc and not an Audio disc. All this will do is burn the data files to the disc and not create an audio disc. This may allow you to listen to the audio files in the computer but will not allow you to listen to the music in the majority of other CD players unless they support MP3 format.
Disc or DVD contains media content not supported by the player Not all home entertainment DVD players are capable of supporting and playing all the different formats movie files and audio files are stored in. Make sure the format or codec of the movie or audio file you're saving to the CD or DVD is supported by the DVD player. If you're computer is capable of playing the files off the DVD but your home entertainment DVD player is not able to play the file it's likely you're encountering this issue.
Bad disc If after reading through the above recommendations you still continue to have the same issue it's possible that the disc is a bad disc. Try re-burning the disc and if possible try a different type of recordable disc.
