How to download avchd files


There are a ton of HD videos available online that you can download and convert to AVCHD videos so that you can burn them to regular DVDs and play them in a compatible Blu-ray player. For example, Vimeo has a large selection of sample AVCHD content. Both AVCHD's MTS and MP4 file formats support 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video resolutions. When downloading videos you should try to capture it at the highest resolution (1080p) possible. However, that said if your video player or TV only supports 720p resolution then that's the format you should select when downloading a video.

RealPlayer Plus does not recognize MTS files. When using RealPlayer Plus to burn HD video onto a regular DVD, look for HD content in the MP4 format like the Vimeo screenshot below. If the resolution you want is only available as an MTS file, you will need to convert the MTS to the MP4 format using third-party software in order to burn an AVCHD DVD with RealPlayer Plus.

Want to copy a TV programme I have on DVD to an 8GB Sandisk backup stick


Hi,
Explore the DVD and just copy the files with VOB extension to USB Stick. These are the Video Files and can be played on any PC. You may also use Any DVD Ripper Software to extract the video from DVD and convert it to any other format such as avi.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

How to transfer movies from dvds to my western digital passport essential


Assuming you have a DVD drive and your HD is already set up, all you have to do is insert the DVD, open "My Computer", open the DVD drive folder and copy the files inside it to your HD folder. If you have trouble playing the video, download the VLC player, it plays almost anything, if you still have trouble, right click on the video folder and click play with VLC player.

Problem open up my maxtor one touch 500gb to retieve photos


first, recover your files. You will need to use hard drive deleted photo recovery program like Asoftech Photo Recovery, you can follow this video to recover deleted photo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNxApz_PBW8

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

DVD Ripping


This is a two part process...
You'll need DVD Decryptor (freeware) and AutoGK (also freeware).
In DVD Decryptor you'll be ripping the DVD movie to an IFO file.
Once that is complete load AutoGK, select the IFO file you just created (it will automatically get the .vob's you just created) select a destination defualt an audio track (usually movies have more than one audio track) and file size and let it go. Depending on the movie it should take approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

The other program you can use after DVD Decryptor is Any Video Converter (also freeware). Instead of selecting the ifo file, select all the .vob files and then right click on the files and select "merge" (make sure they are in the correct order).

This program is a lot faster than autoGK BUT if your DVD has multiple audio tracks, it may not get the right one during conversion.

I believe you can get everything at www.filehippo.com

Hope this helps

Sony hdd


The problem may be that the software on your new computer cannot play the video files.
  1. If you can tell me your operating system (windows XP or Vista?) 
  2. the type of DVD videos you have?
  3. exactly how you made the DVDs - type of computer, software you used (sony style?) or did you use a standalone dvd recorder recording from the TV? 
You can try downloading this free video player, which plays many types of video:
