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.

I copied a tv programme onto my lg dvd rh 735t hard drive and then wanted to copy onto a dvd disc. it copied a perfect picture BUT NO SOUND. please help.

It is unlikely not to have copied the audio, You don't say what device you are trying to play the file on. If it's your computer you need to have the correct codec installed for the type of audio in the file. First try installing VLC VideoLAN Official page for VLC media player the Open Source video...
if that fails then here is the codec you need
Free Download DivX 264 Decoder 8 2 0 26
If it wont play on your LG I need more info about the record options and the type of disc used

How to burn video cd?

Many of these drives came withdriver and video editing software that includes writing the final 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.

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.

Dvd problem, cyclic redundancy check error

Most likely there is some DRM scheme that your DVD drive does not support fully. Try looking for a firmware update for your DVD drive on your computer and see if that fixes the problem.

Burning Mp4 files to DVD

Hi Peter ,
              You are confusing the amount of recording time stated (200 mins) with the disk blurb (I like that word ) 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 ..
