Acer Arcade Make DVD

I'm trying to burn a video I made with my PURE DIGITAL FLIP camera. I got through the make video process on Acer Arcade & have trouble getting it burned on a DVD. When I go through the BURN AUTHOR process it starts making noises like it is burning it but when all is said & done, there is NOTHING on the DVD. I'm using a DVD +R RW disc. What am I doing wrong?

What size dvd 's are used to burn a movie from my Acer aspire 5517? I tried to burn a dvd and cd once and was unable.

The process is rather simple once you get the hang of it. Many people use various conversion software programs to convert their movie file to prepare them for a DVD. Although in the beginning it is complicated but after a couple of stabs at it. You will be burning movies.
The size normally would be 4.7 Gig standard DVD-R you can use RW if you plan to rewrite over the movie later. It will hold a single movie or approx: 4-5 depending on size if the files are not converted. You can convert the movie files using Winavi this is what I use. or you can try to find any free burning software program out there. Winavi for me was the simplest to process it is a approx: 3 step process.
You will be burning the Video from the file once converted. The audio is included during the burning process. All you need is one DVD-R place in the burner. Then open the conversion software and open the video file and convert and burn that is about it. For higher graphics quality it will take more of the disk space for less or normal it will take approx half the disk that way you can fit two movies on one disk basically. So the process is converting the movie to be prepared for the DVD to work on standard players.
Check out Winavi this is what I would suggest maybe someone else knows a free software conversion program you can use. John

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop

The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

No volume with dvd on acer arcade or windows

If there are no hardware issues most probably the following are the reasons:
1. Check whether the Media Player sound is not muted. 2. Check whether the systems sound is not muted. 3. If you encounter sound problems only with dvds most probably there is no driver issue, but there can be a codec issue, install the latest version of media player and if possible install a better dvd player software. Google AVS DVD player a freeware.

Im trying to figure out how to burn a dvd dont know how to do it

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.

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.

How do i operate my acer crystal eye on acer 4710 notebook

I can't verify this, but it's worth a shot:

Go into Acer Arcade or Acer Arcade Deluxe OR go into Windows MediaCenter and then select Acer Arcade. Once in Acer Arcade there should bea program called DV Wizard. Once in DV Wizard select Acer Crystal EyeWebcam and the rest is obvious. Once you are done and click stoprecording, the video that you recorded will be in your Videos folder.
