I have several family video files produced in Canada/States stored on the HDD which play correctly onto the television in uk. I tried to copy these files to the internal DVD recorder but it keeps coming back with the message (TV signal ) not supported. All other copying,recording and playback between HDD and DVD functions work correctly when using the same TV signal ie PAL uk. I have contacted Liteon they say its illegal why should NTSC, PAL,and Secam TV signals be restricted? and is there away round it.

Re: Copying from HDD to DVD
If I may add to coleslaw424 and IB4G2008's post...
If I understand your concerns right, they are: 1. video files stored in the HDD (NTSC) - playback OK ; 2. these NTSC video files can not be recorded to the built-in DVD; 3. all other video files stored in the HDD (PAL) - playback & record OK; 4. you are of the opinion that it is a firmware problem; and 5. you are then seeking cracked firmware version(s).
To my understanding, this unit is basically region free, hence there is no need for a "crack" to make it so. To make it region free, pls press on the remote: 1. Setup button. 2. Up Arrow to Exit setting. 3. 2-9-6-0 (in the number keys pad). 4. Enter 4. Right Arrow 5. Down Arrow (select (0) 6. Enter 7. Left Arrow twice
If for some reason the above procedure will not work, an alternative solution is to replace the entire DVD assembly with the internal DVD assembly from a LiteOn 1635S (a 16X DVD Burner) if your particular model is the version that uses the DDW-813S assembly.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. It would be appreciated if you can pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Many of these drives came withdriver and video editing software that includes writing the final product.to a dvd. My LG drive came with cyberlink video software. This allows loading video files in many different formats, editing using the included tools to add titles, cut out parts not wanted, setting chapters, then produce by burning to the drive onto a blank dvd disc. Blanks come in dvd-r , dvd+r , and dvd-rw formats.
The disc will play on dvd players. When you look at the disc with your computer, all you can see are the marker names. You cannot copy files from video discs.
Other video editing software are: Cyberlink, Roxio, Etc...
If you need product software, go to the link and enter your drive model number.
open windows explorer navigate to the file
right click on the file select copy
if you have an edit on your top toolbar you can select all then once you see that file is selected select copy then navigate to your external hard drive and the location you wish to put this file
you can right click select paste or if it has an edit select paste
hope this helps
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.
Hi Peter , You are confusing the amount of recording time stated (200 mins) with the disk blurb (I like that word blurb...lol.. ) with the actual amount of data you are trying to burn to the DVD ! If your MP4 movie is super high quality or high definition and is 4.7 Gigabytes and 20 minutes long , your DVD-R will only store that amount of data and no more. The capacity of most DVD-R's is about 4.7 Gigabytes or 120 minutes ? it might say it can store 200 minutes , but this is only a guide and depends entirely on what quality the movie is and what compression technique was used to produce the mp4. If this isnt the case and you are sure its no more than 4.7GB and your still having trouble burning over 20 minutes of video, the drive could be faulty or the software your using to burn the DVD -R isnt set up correctly , you need a very big hard drive to burn DVD's (I suggest at least 160 GB ) and as much RAM memory as you can afford to put in your computer. You need this to cache (or temporarily store) the movie file and the software has to be set up properly to use a large cache.Not all DVD-R's do what they say on the case , most say they burn at 16X but ive yet to find a DVD-R that will burn every time and do a good job of it at 16X,I have to lower the burn speed to 8X or lower to get good consistent results...some cheap brands will burn in some drives and not others and buying really cheap DVD -R's is false economy you end up with lots of cheap drinks coasters...or other drives will not read the data you have recorded.. hope this has helped you Peter .. Simon
Burning disks plays a big role with your PC performance...you need a processor like a core 2 duo processor and about 2 GB of RAM....just increasing the ram would be much faster...
