There is no need to convert iso. Better you go to select file and select all the avi file you need to write on the CD/DVD. The files will be transferred on your disc.

What is Power2Go and do I need it

That depends. What OS are you running? What type of files will you burn to disc (and what capacity disc)?

The program lets you burn various files to CD, DVD or BD. If you only plan on burning data files, you may not need it. If you burn ISO to create bootable CDs or DVDs, you might find it useful if you have XP. Windows 7 and 8 include a feature to correctly burn ISOs. (I don't remember if that feature is included in Vista.)
If you want to copy optical discs to burn backup copies, this software will also handle that. The Windows built-in software doesn't copy discs with DRM.

If you are compiling your own audio and video and then burning the resultant file to disc, the software is partially useful. (Another program has to do the compiling.)
There are other programs that do the same tasks as Power2Go. Roxio Creator (includes the video editing and playback software in addition to the burning unit) and Nero Burning ROM are commonly advertised options. A review of Power2Go with links to reviews of similar products is here:,2817,2407197,00.asp .
I hope this helps. If you need additional information, please add a comment with your OS and file burning plans.

(I burn more ISOs and data files. Thus I use the Windows built-in software most of the time.)

Once the file is saved as MPEG2 on the hard drive , it needs to be converted to a VOB file in order to burn it on a DVD with a specific burning software .
As converter , i use TEMPEng and among many burning sofwares ( including TEMPEng's burning tool ) , I preferably use NERO .
With Power Director , it' s also possible to burn directly on DVD .

Will not burn Dual Layer DVD. When movie is larger than will fit on a single layer DVD. burning fails on a dual layer DVD.

Your DVD burner must support dual layer burning to burn a dual layer disc.


You can use the free software "DVDShrink"to shrink a dual layer disc data. The output from DVDShrink can be saved as files on your hard drive, which you can then burn with software of your choice.

Hope it helps.

In Roxio Creator 10, I attempt to burn a disk of a slide show. I receive an error message 8004520C When I check production it reports no problem. This is repeatable.

Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:

  1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
  2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.

If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

  1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
  2. You have two data burning options:
    • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
    • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

I have spent MANY hours developing a nice video. When I go to burn to an image file I get an error message: "Encoding Error 8004520c". I have tried many times. I have defragged. Updated video and...

Here You can find a free mpeg converter for any type of files. What kind of file do You have? If it's .avi, probably Roxio creator cannot burn it because it is too big, and if You nave the menus on Your future DVD, I'm sure the reason is the size. On Mac it's easy. With toast titanium, You can select an option fit-to-DVD, and the video fits on standard DVD. Probably, the default compression options in Roxio aren´t sufficient. Try to search in advanced options compression level, or, You can convert with the MPEG Streamclip the video to mpeg video, by selecting a different level of compression, and then You can offer this file to Roxio. Try this. If it not helps, drop me a message.

Moving MAGIX files to a different computer.

If magix support .iso files do an iso image of the cd you plan to burn
you'll have then a 600-700mb iso file that you have to burn at work.
of course at work your recording program should support ISO's, or you will obtain the same unusable file as you get back from your home

How do I compress files to record on dvd?

Use a program that compresses and converts the files so that they fit on a DVD and can be played on any DVD-player. I use Nero Vision Express 4 (usually included in the later Nero Burning Rom packages), TMPGENC 3 or DVD Flick. Import the avi-file and then export it as DVD-files (vob, bup, ifo) and the burn it on a DVD or let the program convert the file and burn it directly on a DVD. Make sure the program is set to export/burn files to fit the size of a DVD-5 (4.7 GB).

Not sure what it means, but I found a way around it.

I get the same error when I try to burn a WMV (Windows Media Video) file to a DVD.

As a work-around, I converted the file to a MPG (MPEG-2) file. That took the size from 41 Mb to 357 Mb.

I was then able to burn the MPG file to a DVD successfully.

If you still have trouble, I would suggest creating an ISO image of the MPG file. That takes the size from 357 Mb to 508 Mb. You should then be able to create a DVD directly from the image file.

Good luck!
