DVD-Rom's problem! Plz help!

One day, I was watching a movie on a DVD ( there are like 3 .avi files, and no autorun file) and everything was so normal. The day after when I found that my comp did not recognize the DVD-Rom as no icons (D:) showed in My Computer. I tried to look in the Device Manger and there was no DVD-Rom. I pushed the eject button and the disk wouldnt come out; no lights on DVD-Rom flashed either. I thought that was just a once-in-a-while problem so I restarted my comp. Well, I got my DVD-Rom icon back in My Computer, also in the Device Manager. That's good but only problem is that the DVD-Rom no longer can read any DVDs. I've tried couple of others DVDs but no good. First, I find that the DVD-Rom is Not Responding so I have to End Task in the Windows Task Manager. When I try to read the disk the second times, the DVD-Rom tell me to :" Please insert a disk into drive D:" I dont know what happened to my beloved DVD-Rom. Hope you guys can help!!! Any suggestions is warmly welcome!! Many thanks in advance!! My dvd rom was working fine until i recently installed a dvd writer. Now when i switch my Pc on the dvd rom(old one) does not respond, the light used to flash, but now its not even flashing. It happened in a space of 10 minutes. How do i sort this out. Please help i would really appreciate Thanks

Roxio burning dvd


I think it will not. The output has a different file name. But don't save the converted file same as the source file. Or you could try experimenting with it using a short avi file then convert it to dvd.

Also are you making its output be automatically burn unto the disc? It will keep its original file.

LG RH188H - what movie file types does it play?


Hi,
AVI are a certain type of movie file.
Your problem is most likely that you do not, have the correct software ( program ) installed on your computer to view these files, yet i believe do play on a normal DVD Player.
you could try Windows Media player, this may work for you. also power DVD or Similar. although there are newer programs out there. as for the conversion, this is a long winded process in itself. To convert AVI To MPEG ( standard DVD Format ) you need unpacking tools and software, And a relatively high spec PC, Lots Of Memory.
Hope this guides you.

Q: I have a collection of Anime, movie, etc. and then I have an iPhone. Most of the anime and movie are in Avi format, now I’m wondering if and how I can convert these avi videos to Mp4 for playback on my iPhone? (By the way, I have a pc running on Windows 7), Thanks!

A: If you have an iPhone, you may have encountered the same problem. You have bunch of movies which you have downloaded from internet, and you want to pull out your iPhone to watch a few clips when you’re bored on the road or if you have extra time between classes. While your iPhone only accepts videos in MP4 or MOV format, but most of your downloaded movies are in AVI format. And that is the question- how to put downloaded movies in AVI format to your iPhone so you can enjoy them on the go? Basically, it is not difficult to make it. What you have to do is to convert avi file to mp4 for playback on your iPhone.

Things You'll Need
An iPhone
Downloaded movies or videos in AVI format
AVI to MP4 Converter
A PC running on Windows OS (including Windows7 OS)

A PC running on Windows OS (including the latest Windows7)
For those windows users, there are various AVI to MP4 converters, both free and paid, such as free Handbreak, but for windows 7 users, like me, the only one I had a good luck is Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, which is handy for converting AVI to MP4 files and transferring these AVI files for iPhone. Now, let’s check out it together.

Steps to convert AVI to MP4 on windows 7 for your iPhone:
