Copying from HDD to DVD

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.

    You have just told me what Liteon said. I'am looking for something on the internet to overide this problem

  • anikman Feb 08, 2008

    thanks for the reply but I dont think you understand the problem. This is a Liteon lvw5045 unit dual HDD/DVD unit.Its the
    internal firmware which is causing the problem .There are several cracked firmware versions on the internet ie removing region codes will they cure the problem

  • anikman Feb 18, 2008

    I guess you havn't found a cracked solution to the problem, or you have just given up

  • anikman Feb 21, 2008

Hi anikman,

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.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    I understand, after the Setup Screen display, simply exit (man exiting ) and then on your remote key in 2 9 6 0, the Enter, then Right Arrow, then Down Arrow and select 0, then Enter and finally Left Arrow twice. After the 2 9 6 0 you would be inside a hidden menu/setup.

There is no legal way around it, They do this to prevent priacy. There are ways around it but I am not sure about posting things like that on this site.

    There is a program called dvd fab, they have a free 30 day trial, this program is able to remove region codes. I have used it with great results, as far as I know it is a completely legal program, it is a little pricey but if it solves your problem then I would say it's money well spent. Anyway as I said you can try it free for a month no credit card or anything like that required just download it and go I will leave the download link below. I hope this is a little more helpful.

    Have a good night

    Thank you for clarifying your situation, you were right and the reason is that I use a liteon burner so when I scanned the question I assumed that was what you were talking about. A firmware crack may be your answer so if you will permit me till tomorrow I will research the various cracks I have found, I need to check for things like ease of use, reputation, and quality to make sure I recommend something that will work. These are all very important things because when your talking about a firmware crack you are talking about something that if done wrong can ruin your device for good. Thank you for your Patience I will get back to you as soon as possible with the correct solution.

Iv burnt my file to dvd rom and it plays ok on pc but when i put it on my dvd video player it says incorrect disk.

You need a correct dvd burning program. First see what file extension your dvd player takes and then find the correct file converter on the internet. I have used several and Foxtab works real good. Real player has one but it is not free. Windows media player has one but you need to see what formats are needed before you burn the dvd. You see your pc already does that for you is why it plays on your computer.

This is going to be foolish but work for a family with the Go Video 3840 and when i try to dub a home video onto a DVD I press record and it shows that both are playing and recording but nothing transfers...

This means your DVD or Video Cass is copyrited and has what is called microfilm coating . This keeps you from transfering video and audio from one device to the next.

Lg cd/dvd rw will not play or record. but will play mp-3

It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.

You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.

HI Im in austrlia.. i bought a 4 disk set tv show from the uk... the 1st two disks work but the ither two say wron region code... it doesnt work on my dvd player or ps3 please help

Different coutries use different region codes Like i am in canada region code 001 and i think UK is 002. It is to control the release of video around the world... like movies in the states come out before the movies in canada. anyway you have to be careful as changing the code on some machines (in the dvd players settings) could only be done a few times before in locksin into the final code inputed thus it will play lets say your uk stuff but not your Australian stuff.

I would research your dvd player specifically and see if it locks itself before changing anything. Good luck

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.

Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Copying video clips from the internet onto DVD

hi, you can find free codecs, which are pretty much the descrambler codes to play audio and video, on go to downloads section and search for them. look for the free codecs they work the same as any others.
next. your gonna want to convert your videos to Nero Digital (MP-4 format) this makes it less chances of some videos not playing back, and the dvd not playing at all.
then follow steps in nero to convert them,
burn to disk using make your own dvd. just add the converted videos and burn. be sure to remember where you saved the converted videos.

Copying a recorded file so I can edit it in iMovie on my computer please

I'm pretty sure that iMovie can cope with lots of different file formats. If you can burn the file onto a DVD and get the file off the DVD onto your computer's hard drive I think iMovie will cope with the rest. I know I have worked on Imovie in the past with DV files from my camera, but I'm sure that something like an mpeg file or a mp4 file will work too. What are the file options for recording from the HDD to disc?

Nikon movie downloads

Copying a video file onto a DVD does not make it viewable on a DVD player. You will need software capable of mastering a DVD.
