    I use the Program DVDfab and it finds and burns DVD's just fine. That is why I cant understand the reason that it won't do it in Media Center 2005

    I use a program called DVDFab that finds burns cd's fine with the burner. That is why I cant figure out why it cant be seen in Media Center 2005

    I have the option in Media Center to burn a dvd from mpeg vidoes that I copied from old VHS tapes but the process fails at 1% burn time and spits out dvd after 2minutes or so...



    Is this a problem with the writer / programme or dvd disks maybe? I have a Dell dimension 9200 with XP...



    Any advice would be truly appreciated. Thanks

First check if you have a dvd-writer in your computer.
Then if you are in Media Center 2005 right-click the movie. There should be an option for making a cd/dvd. If not, then your dvd-writer is not installed (properly).
Please post some feedback

Easy way to burn WMV video to DVD and play on a DVD player


One of the most popular video formats used with computers and found on the web is WMV. WMV is wide compatibility with Windows PCs. it short for Windows Media Video. And it is the name of the video encoder that was created by software giant Microsoft. The advantage of WMV is that Good compression and quality. WMV movies are played with third party media player programs such as "Windows Media Player, "RealPlayer" and "VLC player". A lot of people saved WMV clips onto compute and want to make WMV to DVD for playback on a DVD player watch videos on TV screen.

DVD ( Digital Video Disc ) is an optical data storage device which can hold large capacities of digital data like high quality video and movies. A VOB ( DVD Video Object or Versioned Object Base ) file is a container format for DVD video files. An explanation of VOB files is beyond the scope of this article, but a study of the software part of the DVD format is essentially a study of the VOB container file format. With CD’s or Compact Disc’s becoming virtually obsolete with the emergence of high capacity storage HD DVD’s and Blueray disc’s, more and more video editing tools are geared to conversion between these two highly popular media formats, WMV to DVD.

How to convert WMV file to DVD?
Before we go to detail steps, there are some Pre Requirements: A blank DVD disk (DVD +R, DVD-R, DVD+RW or DVD-RW), rewritable DVD-ROM, A WMV to DVD Converter. Most DVD burning software can easily burn WMV files to a DVD as data. Here we use Daniusoft DVD creator. It can burn WMV Video files to DVD directly.

Step1. Import WMV videos
The first step is to import WMV files that needs to be burned onto a DVD may reside on the local hard drive or on an external device such as iPod. If it is not on your computer, copy the WMV file onto the local hard drive first and then Select/drag the WMV file into the main interface of D DVD creator. You could check the video size on the measure bar on the bottom. Make sure the space doesn't exceed the total DVD capacity.


Step 2. DVD menu making
Click "Menu Template" to create DVD menu. There are different styles of built-in templates, frames and buttons for your choice. To apply a template, frame or button, you can just double click it. You can even add text, background music and background image to customize the menu.

Previewing WMV video
Just for make sure everything goes as your plan you could have a video preview before burning it to DVD.

Step 3. Convert WMV to DVD
Now you can burn WMV to DVD disk. Go to set TV Standard (PAL/NTSC) on "Setting" option and output Aspect Ratio (4:3/16:9) on "DVD setting bar". Click "Burn" and then select your DVD drive (if you have more than one DVD drive on PC) and Click "Start" to burn your project.

Tips: The volume of DVD use is shown on the bottom side. You can select DVD type of "D5" or "D9". If the video size is exceed the DVD capability you can reduce it by setting output quality. E.g. select "high quality" instead of "Best performance".

That it, with Daniusoft DVD Creator, you can convert WMV to DVD and even make your own DVD menu in 3 steps. And the application also can burn other common files like MKV WMV M2TS MPEG AVI FLV MOV, etc to DVD and fully compatible with Windows 7 (DVD Creator MAC version is also available). Now, just enjoy watching your own made WMV movie on home DVD player.

Hi there 2007 staff! I need HELP! I inherited a computer without much info. to go with it...I have 2007 Microsoft Office software on an HP and I use WordPerfect. I am a writer and I am having the hardest...


Hi,

Personally i wouldn't save your text files to CD/DVD unless you catalogue them properly. they can also take up quite a lot of space.

A CD will hold up to 700MB of data to it. A DVD will hold up to 4.5GB which is a hell of a lot of information especially if you just save text documents.


You can use Windows Media center to burn a data CD/DVD which is probably the easiest way to burn a data disk.

Alternatively you could get an external hard drive to save your file to. This would save plenty of money when it comes to writable media like CD's and DVD's and would also cut out the problem of burning a disk.

The plus side to an external hard drive is that none of the data is stored on the computer hard drive itself and it is usable on other computers in case you don't have access to your own computer.



Regards.

Driver


For DVD drives, no special driver software is required. The drives will work with generic drivers provided with all standard operating systems out of the box.

However, DVD movie playing is *not* done by a driver, it requires an application installed on the PC.

For Windows, AFAIR only Windows 7 can play DVD movies out of the box, using Windows Media Center.

All other versions of Windows require a commercial or free player program, e.g. WinDVD (Corel) or PowerDVD (Intervideo) or VLC (VideoLAN, free).

For burning data or movie DVD, also an application program is needed. Windows Vista and later have some limited support for ISO and UDF files systems written to DVDs. Personally, I like CDBurnerXP for data, and Slysoft's CloneDVD / AnyDVD combo for video.

I would like to store my video movies (Video 8) onto my hard drive how can I convert these?


I think what you want, is to transfer your captured video from your video camera to your computer?

You can use the cables that go from the video/audio three-set to the USB. You may have to buy one. It should work, but I think the easiest is to burn to a DVD via a player/recorder, and then you can use something like Windows Media Player to "rip" the video and then save it to your hard drive.

I have saved a movie from movie maker and I have tried to burn it to a dvd. I see that it has saved it but it hasn't burned the movie to the dvd. How do I burn it to the dvd.


I beleive that in Windows, when burning something on to disc (be it CD or DVD), you have to go to the actual drive window (via "My Computer" and select "Burn these items to disc". From what I remember of the days I burned discs this then burns the file onto the disc.

Hope this helps!

Saving in DVD format


The DVD format is VOB. In the Windows Movie Maker you can save movies as DV-AVI, but in order to burn them onto a DVD disc you should convert them into VOB files using burning software (for example- Nero).
