Taking scenes from DVD discs to compile in a new DVD disc
I want to take "scenes" from old DVD's, group them, and then make a new DVD disc using Windows XP. Cyberlink Producer and Director came with the DVD player which I added to my Dell Dimension 2200. I thought with this stuff I could, as previously able to do with a TV set, and a DVD/VCR record parts of DVD's onto a VCR cassette and not have to keep a bunch of DVD's that only had short bits I wanted. I thought this would be as simple as recording onto a VCR bits from other VCR of DVD onto a VCR cassette, but ...the Cyberlink stuff seems to think one is already a media expert or something. Which I am not. Would I have to copy the whole DVD, then try to snip out the parts I want to combine from the resulting "file" or "folder" or whatever?

I think there might be a problem with ur DVD rom, because it might have got scratches on it, i recommend it to wipe the DVD with a soft cloth very smoothly, along the discs rings.. and try again...
If this doesnot solve the problem, there might be a problem with the DVD Drive u r using, the lens might be a problem, try this use lens cleaner and clean the lens of the disc try to change the dvd drive.. and try again..

First make sure your dvd drive is also a dvd burner, if it is not a burner then you can not write files to disks and will have to buy a new one
If that is not the problem, you have to make sure that you're using a dvd-rw (if the disc has info on it) or a dvd-r that has nothing on it. If you are not using one of those then the process will not work
Use DVD burning software like Nero or Roxio to check if DVD disc is empty as windows may not recognize the empty space of disc, if issue persists - update the firmware of the DVD drive, you need to contact drive manufacturer to obtain the updated firmware.
I suppose that you have windows XP.
Pls follow these steps
Clean the disc - Clean the disc with a disc cleaning kit or by gently wiping the silver side of the disc from the center outward with a dry, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth. Check the disc for damage - Remove the disc from the drive, and then examine the disc for scratches or cracks.Try a different disc drive - If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer.Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive -Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive.
A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive.
A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs.
A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front.
Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers - If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site:http://windowsupdate.microsoft.comRegards
are u copying the disc on the fly i mean directly from dvd rom to dvd rw it sometimes generate this error when reading drive stops giving data due to some error and suddenly bcoz of that the writing drive leavve the session un closed and give an error the solution is first copy ur disc on the hard drive and then copy it on another disc on the fly copying is not safe otherwise also try this
pls try to clean the lens of the drive as follows
due to dusty environment and excessive use lens gets dusty and then have problems in reading or writing dvd 's and cd's
the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens
gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to
clean lcd screens or cotton bud good quality see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got
weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them
everyday for replacements
u can try that software thing as well but i dont think it will solve ur problem
Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs,
which would be weird.
Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention.
To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance.
Good luck mate !
