How to backup copies of all your disks


DVD and Compact disk disks became a part of our way of life; most of us have a significant assortment of motion pictures, audio CDs, photographs, video games, office paperwork as Ill as other disks. And it is really frequently that you simply require to make a backup of that disk, for backup functions or merely to produce a couple of copies of your Adding video clip for your close friends. You will find a lot of applications that may imitate your DVD motion pictures, but really number of those which may copy all of your disks, both Compact disc and DVD

Here I'll test a plan known as AVS DVD Copy, which claims copying any type of DVD and Compact disk disks. I'd prefer to check is it really can replicate any type of disk

Setup requires a number of seconds, the plan is created as a classic step-by-step wizard, and it appears slick and clear. Pick disk to copy, it is a DVD film now, and press "Next" button to go further. I've got two DVD movie drives on our test personal computer so the system asks do I want to imitate directly from drive to push? Yes I do! Press "Next" once again and it began to duplicate. By default it helps make a single imitate, but you are able to set quantity of copies as you like

Arrive again, now with a sound Compact disk. AVS DVD Copy does the task perfectly; I have received specifically exactly the same Compact disk, no top quality loss in any way! I did exactly the same with several of recreation CDs, CD with photographs, MP3 new music DVD, one more Digital video disc film, and one more Digital video disc film. All attempts Ire successfull, no hassles

Then I examined the way it operates having a solitary CD/DVD drive. First it copies from disk to computer, then asks to insert a blank disk and writes an imitate. It takes additional time, but the outcome can also be perfect

What I also observed is AVS DVD Copy does not decrease the good quality of DVD and DVD motion pictures and audio CDs, which is good. Actually, you get a correct duplicate, specifically the identical as authentic. AVS DVD Copy is seriously in a position to imitate any CDs and DVDs, and it does not matter what disk is in your push, you obtain a correct duplicate with AVS DVD Copy movie anyway. I successfully copied over 10 disks, both Compact disk and DVD, which contained video clip, MP3 audio, Compact disk audio tracks, pictures, paperwork, no cost computer software along with other stuff. It effectively recognizes various CDR/RW, DVD+/-R/RW disks and double-layer DVD movie videos

There's only a single function missed in AVS DVD Copy. Regrettably it can't encode 9 GB double-layer Digital video disc for the four.7Gb single layer, so individuals who're in search of this function will probably be frustrated. But in any case AVS DVD Copy is still a single in the best DVD Copy software program I ever seen.

How to do Blu-ray playback using Media Player Classic Homecinema


Media Player Classic Home Cinema is an extremely light-weight free program for Windows. It looks just like Windows Media Player v6.4, but has much more additional features. You can use it as a Media Player Classic Home Theater. MPC Homecinema supports a wide range of decoding formats and file formats, following are the details:

Supported Decoding:
MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 playback. Media Player Classic is capable of VCD, SVCD and DVD playback, without the need to install any additional software or codecs.

It has built-in codecs for MPEG-2 video and codecs for LPCM, MP2, AC3 and DTS audio, and also contains an improved MPEG splitter that supports playback of VCDs and SVCDs using its VCD/SVCD/XCD Reader. A *.mp4 and MPEG-4 Timed Text support added. An AAC decoding filter makes MPC suitable for AAC playback in MP4.

MPC Home Cinema also has H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support, DivX, Xvid, and Flash Video formats is available in MPC HC. MPC can also use the QuickTime and the RealPlayer architectures. Media Player Classic supports native playback of OGM and Matroska container formats.

Supported Video, Audio and Image File Formats:
WAV, WMA, MP3, OGG, SND, AU, AIF, AIFC, AIFF, MIDI, MPEG, MPG, MP2, VOB, AC3, DTS, ASX, M3U, PLS, WAX, ASF, WM, WMA, WMV, AVI, CDA, JPEG, JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, D2V, MP4, SWF, MOV, QT, FLV

To make commercial Blu-ray movies playable with Media Player Classic Homecinema, one thing you have to do is using a blu ray disc ripper to remove copy protections before your playback. The following contents will give you the detailed steps.

Note:
If you are using a powerful PC, you can do the following "Directly Copy". When playback, MP Classic Homecinema will automatically download codecs as needed, so you are able to successfully play m2ts files directly copied from the BD disc, which have the same quality as the original.

1. Load Blu-ray files to Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper
Three ways are available – "BD/DVD ROM", "BD/DVD Folder", and "IFO/ISO".

2. Select output format
Click on the dropdown list at the end of "Format", then follow "Copy">"Directly Copy".

blurayripper_copy_100419.jpg

Note:
If you are using a slower PC, we suggest you not to select "Directly Copy", because your slower PC will attempt to play the output m2ts files, but the sound does not keep up. So other formats supported by Media Player Classic Homecinema are recommended. To remain the high quality of a Blu-ray movie, you can choose "HD Video" as output format as below:

blurayripper_hdvideo_100419.jpg

3. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters
Note that this option is unavailable if you are using "Directly Copy". Generally speaking, the default settings are able to satisfy your needs basically, but if you have higher expectations of the output files, you can adjust all the following video and audio parameters according to your own requirements.

4. Click "Convert" button to start Blu-ray ripping
As soon as the ripping work is finished, you can get the output files for MPC Homecinema via tapping "Open" button. After that, you can import the files to MPC HC for playback. Have fun.

Additional Tips:
More than "Directly Copy" and format conversion, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper also supports "Full Disk Copy", which enables you to get a standard Blu-ray structure ready for burning.

I have the above model camcorder ,the playback on my laptop with windows vista is terribly poor jumping all the time/distorted with jvc software provided or on windows media player it plays but audio is...


Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.

How come I can't play a video with AVCHD format on my laptop? My laptop is an HP Pavillion DV7


Each of the AVCHD camcorders ships with software designed to playback the files on your computer. Sony's HDR-SR1 and the newer HDR-SR5 both record video in the AVCHD format and ship with the Picture Motion Browser, which plays back AVCHD files on most computers. If you purchased one of the Panasonic AVCHD camcorders, the included HD Writer should allow you to playback video recorded with your camcorder.
  

While the bundled applications work, my personal preference, is Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra, which supports playback of the AVCHD files and a whole host of other high definition formats. In addition to playing back your HD camcorder files, PowerDVD Ultra plays back Blu-ray and HD-DVD disks (with the accompanying drives connected, of course). PowerDVD Ultra also makes it possible to expand your HD video editing options, by using the included codecs to render the AVCHD video in apps like VirtualDub.

Cyberlink PowerDVD ultra can be downloaded from here :

Make sure the downloaded driver is for XP and not Vista and they are specific to your model laptop.
After downloading the driver file, when you run the file it unzips the file and copies it to your hard disk (take a note of the file folder it creates on your hard disk). Then you need to go to that folder and run the setup file and it will install the audio driver.
This also applies to all the drivers you download and wish to install.

Copying movies to computer sound won't play


Most digital HDD sony handycam video cameras encode MPEG-2 files in 5.1 surround sound audio. You probably are not hearing sound because your playback software does not support 5.1 surround sound encoded MPEG-2 files. Try using a newer peice of software with the latest codecs installed.
