    Do you know your CD/DVD RW Drives manufacturer and/or model Number? If you do you can go to the manufacturer's website click support and read/download your documentation that came with your drive. If you do not know these if the drive originally came with your computer your computer manufacturer's website should offer the same information. If none of the above apply you will need to go to "device manager" from the windows "control panel" in the "Start Menu." However I will need to know which Operating System (version of windows, etc.) your computer is running to help as the procedure differs from Vista, to XP, to ME/98/95 and NT versions of windows.
    The only other way is to crack the case and physically have a look at your drive to obtain the information required from it's labels which in most cases will involve actually removing the drive so you can view them. The latter I only recommend if your very familiar and somewhat experienced in computer hardware. The danger of electric shock to yourself and static discharge to your computer's internal components is very real.
    I'll be online for a while so let me know which OS (Operating System) your computer is running and we'll go from there.

Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media


Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.

By mistake I bought a dvd rw disc instead of dvd-rw disc and recorded a holiday video on my camcorder with it. I usually then upload the contents of the dvd onto my hard drive (Pioneer) and then download...


Try uploading to your PC then converting it to AVI this keeps quality of video. Then if you want to download to a disk use Nero to convert it to VOB (DVD format) and burn off. You can also use Nero to erase the disk. (Nero 7 or more recent preferably.) You must also be sure you PC DVD read write head can take the DVD +/- RW. CHeck compatability.
