Recording to DVDs to be compatible to play in other DVD players

I want to record a Powerpoint Program on to a DVD which can then be compatible to be played in another DVD player other than the one in the computer. I need to make it playable and I don't know where to go to do this.

    Bigbiggs, I have my PC with DVD recorder, as well as a stand along DVD recorder. I am trying to make a DVD with my PC one. So you say I should use DVD R type disk instead of RW? I could try that. I have only bought RW kind so far. Margaret

    I do know the the RW is erasable, and that is ok. I have made DVD RWs on another DVD recorder recorder that I have and they work fine. They are both + and - DVDs. Both kinds work. How do I close one on the computer, or is it possible to do it with DVD RWs? Margaret

    OK, so when I tried to close it, it seems like I remember the option to close it was either gray or not available at all. I may just have not known where to go to close it.

    DVD RW are for writing temperary data. Untill they are closed they will only run on a PC. R's are for one time use.

    There should be a selection on the DVD RW properties. I somehow missed the powerpoint statement. RW's should work, but normal operation of a recorder using RW's it's a seperate step to close the write operation. Otherwise, the recorder will want to continue to write to them and other players will not see the RW as a complete write... ergo error or blank.

I have an un-formatted DVD-RW. I want to record music on it. First how do I format it so I can record music, and second, can I record music on a DVD-RW?


No you cannot record music to a DVD-RW. You must use CD-R media to record music as CD players cannot read DVDs. However you can burn the music to the DVD if you plan on using a DVD player to play the music. I beleive some recording hardware does allow you to use DVD's, but most use CD-R media or digital media such as a hard drive or flash media.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

Recording from sky planner to dvd


Yep all you will need is a DVD recorder Philips do a good low cost version DVDR 3380 and a Philips DVD+RW ( this is the type that you don't need to finalize before you can use it in your PC)

All you have to do is make a connectiion to the video out of the Sky box using the suitable connection normally a SCART lead in to the EXT1 or EXT2 of your DVD recorder.

Play the Sky program in your planner and hit record don't forget to select the time you require 1 (HQ) 2,4 or 6 (SLP) hours. It will take as long as the program take to run to record it.

The best way to get the DVD-Video into your PC is to use the excellent TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress from Pegasys use the Souce Video Wizard.

Then select the DVD-VR button this will read in the DVD content and then allow you to edit it and re-encode to almost any format.

If you select over 4 hours or recording most DVD standalone recorders will revert to Half D1 this equates to 360x576 instead of the Full D1 resolution of 720x576 (standard PAL for DVD-Video) you will need to use this filter to convert the half to full download it here Half D1 to Full D1
