Having burned a dvd i try to play it in my dvd player but the dvd freezes half way through so i try it in the ps3 and does the same around the same spot on the dvd


If it is a dual layer DVD (8.4GB), you are probably freezing at the layer break. This is the place on the DVD where the burner shifts the burn from the first layer to the second layer of the DVD. There is a lot of this problem. It is due in part to variables in DVD burners and readers, but mostly in the quality of the media being burned. Dual layer DVD media is very finicky and I personally avoid it if at all possible. I have had too many issue of incompatibility of media to burners and as a result burned too many coasters for my liking. Obviously, if the media is going to give the burners issues, what do you suppose will happen when trying to use it in a player? If you must burn dual-layer DVD media, you are best to buy the best. It costs more, but the headaches are not worth the apparent savings. I have had luck with the VERBATIM Dual Layer Media, but have been told that there are occasionally issues here too, depending upon where the media was produced. There is a great deal of information on the wen you can persue on this,,,a simple Google on best Dual-Layer DVD media will open Pandora box!

NOT SRE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS NEED TO BURN DVD FROM ANOTHER DVD AND


Before you decide to burn a DVD, it is important to know what kind of DVD you would like to burn. The type of DVD will usually determine the process you use to go about burning. The three most common types of DVDs to burn are Data DVD's, Multimedia Files to a DVD and making a copy and burning a commercial DVD. The burning process will be determined by the type of data you want to burn. You could do three possible actions:
  1. Burn Data to a DVD
  2. Burn Multimedia Files to a DVD
  3. Copy and Burn a Commercial DVD
Burning Data to a DVD Ordinary data such as documents, spreadsheets, database files and backup files require only general DVD burning programs. The data that you burn can be viewed on any type of computer with a DVD drive. Popular DVD burning software programs include Nero 9 and Super DVD Creator 9.8.8. You will need to purchase or download any of the DVD burning software titles that are available on the market. For some computers that are purchased new, DVD burning software already comes installed and configured for your machine and DVD burner. You just need to open up your DVD burner software, choose to burn a data DVD and follow the instructions. You can usually burn a full length DVD (about 4.7 GB of data) in less than 20 minutes and even quicker with high speed DVD burners. Burning Multimedia Files to a DVD Multimedia files are usually larger files that include video either recorded from a TV set, camcorder or digital camera or downloaded from the internet. You may also want to convert an old VHS tape to a more user friendly DVD. With today's DVD authoring tools, you can easily burn multimedia files and give them professional features such as adding a title or menu page or cataloguing many TV shows that you have already saved on your computer's hard drive. Some DVD burning software packages even allow you to add subtitles that you can create yourself. You can add DRM (digital rights management) with the help of your burning software, if you are creating commercial videos that you would want to make difficult to copy. Copying and Burning a Commercial DVD Many people use their DVD burner to burn copies of commercial DVDs. In most parts of the world, it is illegal to copy a commercial DVD and sell or distribute it. However, you may want to make a copy for archiving purposes. There are many tools that can copy a commercial DVD. However, apart from the normal DVD burner and DVD burning software, you will also need special software that can decode or crack the digital rights management. It is also important to note that besides cracking the code and copying the data of the commercial DVD, you may need to shrink the file. Most commercial DVDs are dual layer and have between 7 and 8.4 GB of data. These files must be compressed to fit on a normal 4.7 GB DVD. Once you have cracked the commercial DVD and compressed it, you can use ordinary DVD burning software to burn your DVD.

I am trying to burn dvd s I have a dual layer burner but apparently for compatibility issues you must change your booktype to DVD ROM. that option is greyed out with my burner. What burners can i use to...


You can only change a DVD book type if you are using DVD+R. You can't change a book type on DVD-R. You are probably using -R, which should be just fine. I personally prefer -R, but both types work pretty well.

If you are burning video to +R disks you should be able to change the book type to DVD ROM in one of the option boxes.

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
