DVD read/write problem


DVDs and CDs are specific to that media. For instance an audio CD must be extracted to a file (mp3, wav...). Copying will only create a shortcut in Windows. DVDs are VOB files if it seems them. Then you may need a player with the correct CODEC to access the file, or again be extracted to avi, mp4... You also have the problem for DVDs having security measures. You will have to use 3rd party software to remove the encryption if it can. Some are just too tough to remove.

Download Free DVD to AVI Converter to Convert DVD Movies to AVI Videos


The reason for writing this text is that many guys ask the question about converting DVD to AVI file. This absolutely benefits from AVI files’ sharp image and AVI format is widely supported on a vast range of operating systems and devices. Because no one like to get fuzzy and distortion video files from DVDs...
Next, let’s talk about how to convert DVD to AVI video with some DVD to AVI ripper freeware or shareware. For DVD fans, Handbrake is no stranger as a free DVD Ripping software. If you just rip DVDs now and then or have no special requirements like editing, adjust parameter for DVD Movies. Handbrake is quite qualified for Ripping DVD to AVI as an DVD to AVI converter freeware.
You can get the last version Handbrake
However, if your DVDs are encrypted by CSS, Handbrake is willing to help but unable to do so about this. For protected DVDs, the first thing you will need to do when ripping a movie DVD to AVI is remove the copy protection. Most discs use a variant of the Content Scrambling System(CSS), but many also use other techniques. Although some DVD-ripping apps, like autoMKV, can bypass copy protection, they are not updated as frequently and aren't always successful at defeating new copy protection schemes. Your best choice , therefore, is to top one of the utilities that are dedicated to the task, such as Daniusoft DVD Ripper.
Daniusoft DVD ripper justifies its high price by bypassing new forms of encryption almost immediately after they appear. This apps serve as on-the-fly disc decrypters, stripping copy protection before your ripping or playback software recognizes the disc. Want o rip an encrypted disc to your hard drive? It is as easy as coping contents of the disc's VIDEO_TS files to your hard drive one you installed Daniusoft DVD Ripper. Regardless, before we continue, you should install one of this app.
You can download the software at this link: Daniusoft Best DVD Ripper, and install the app.
Once you launch the Daniusoft DVD Ripper, you can click "Add" to load Real DVD or DVD-like source such as DVD folder, ISO files, IFO files. Here we add a real DVD from DVD Rom.

After you add the DVD, you can edit the video effect by clicking "Edit" from the menu bar, this software video editing function is very powerful and utilitarian.
Crop – Cut off the black edge of your DVD movie to let you enjoy your movie in full screen by click the 'Crop' button.
Trim – As you have selected the clips to convert, here you can trim any segment of your clips to convert by click the 'Trim' button.
Effect- Set the Video Effects: Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and adjust the volume to modulate the effect. All the progress you can see preview clearly.

Next, select the output video format, this software supports various video formats, almost any video formats you can name, and it supports many PMPs such as iPad, iPod, iPhone 3gs, Zune HD, PSP go, Creative Zen, mobile phone Blackberry, droid, Nexus one etc. Here we select AVI as output format.

The last step, click the "start" button to start the conversion. The Ripping speed is fast and you will get the converted AVI files from DVDs in 1-3 hours. Of cause, the length of ripping time is depended on the size of your DVDs. Furthermore, this DVD Ripper offers the option to automatically shut down the computer when the conversion completed.
The original DVD file is near 5 GB, the conversion test on Windows vista 32 Pentium 4 single core system and it works very fast, which takes about 1 hours. And below is this DVD ripper performance screen.

So far, I guess you should try to convert DVD to AVI video by yourself with free DVD to AVI converter(handbrake) or this shareware one(Daniusoft DVD Ripper).
Attention:
Before you begin to use these software, you need to pay attention below items:
1. Understand copyright laws in your country before ripping any copyrighted DVDs.
2. Do not promote or partake in piracy. Although there is some dubiety over whether it is legal to copy DVDs for your own use, making copyrighted DVDs available in the public realm is against the law.
3. Understand that in the US the laws are unclear and conflicting, you might be able to rip a copy of copyrighted material for your own use under the concept of Fair Use. However, circumventing DRM may be illegal in and of itself, regardless of ownership of the IP or intent after disabling the DRM method. Read up on the DMCA and then contact your congressman!

How do you copy Youtube videos to DVDs using 123 Copy DVD Gold?


You usually download youtube vids as FLV files, there are plenty of free file conversion programs to change flv to avi or whatever format you want, you can then burn them onto a disc.
I have never used your software, so i am not sure if it handles flv files.If your dvd player will play avi/divx files, you could convert then to avi and burn them as a data disc using ant burning software, i use free software for this. CD burner XP and imgburn.
It sats this about your software..
  • Copy ANY DVD.
  • Burn YouTube videos to DVD.
  • Copy episodic shows like The Sopranos or *** and the City.
  • Autofit technology gives you the best possible quality.
  • Convert ANY DVD to DivX, AVI, Windows Media (WMV), and MPEG.
  • Burn videos downloaded from the internet to DVD.
  • Blu-Rays Upgradeable (Copy Blu-Ray Movies).
  • Copy DVD to Hard Disk.
So your software should be able to burn your dvd, there should be a HELP menu on the software.

My asus dvd writer does not make dvd video which play on dvd player


If you're talking about making "Home Video" into playable DVDs it's not because there's necessarily a problem with your DVD-Burner. It's most likely because your home videos are being recorded as .AVI format files. There are some other file formats it could be, but it all boils down to the same problem: the DVDs you make will only play in computers or on the rare chance that you come across a DVD player that plays those formats. The best way to remedy this situation is to buy a program that will convert the files from .AVI to DVD. There are several to choose from. Roxio reportedly has software\programs that will do this. I'm sure that Nero does too. Both companies produce several different versions of "Burning Software" do your research and be sure you buy one that will convert the files for you. There is another one that I've personally used to convert the files and burn the DVDs for me. It's "I'm Too AVI-to-DVD". I know that is an odd name for a program, but it's straight forward in what it's function is. When I used this program to convert the file formats for me and burn the DVDs it literally took several hours to convert and burn about 5GB of video for me. I don't know if Roxio or Nero would be able to do it faster than that. converting file formats can be a lengthy process.
