Assuming you are using windows xp,when you insert the dvd into its drive,it should give you a prompt asking what you want to do.click on write to dvd.if it doesnt give you a prompt.Click on my computer then double-click on the dvd,copy the video clips into the dvd drive.click on write these files to dvd.
If this is complex try installing Nero, it makes it easier.

Why won't the DVD drive eject?


Rochellewar,
Go to my computer and right click on the dvd drive and choose the Eject option. If that does not resolve the issue look to see if you have a small pin hole on the front of the DVD drive. If so, insert a paper clip into the hole to eject the drive. You can click the link below to watch the youtube video.

Download Free DVD to AVI Converter to Convert DVD Movies to AVI Videos


The reason for writing this text is that many guys ask the question about converting DVD to AVI file. This absolutely benefits from AVI files’ sharp image and AVI format is widely supported on a vast range of operating systems and devices. Because no one like to get fuzzy and distortion video files from DVDs...
Next, let’s talk about how to convert DVD to AVI video with some DVD to AVI ripper freeware or shareware. For DVD fans, Handbrake is no stranger as a free DVD Ripping software. If you just rip DVDs now and then or have no special requirements like editing, adjust parameter for DVD Movies. Handbrake is quite qualified for Ripping DVD to AVI as an DVD to AVI converter freeware.
You can get the last version Handbrake
However, if your DVDs are encrypted by CSS, Handbrake is willing to help but unable to do so about this. For protected DVDs, the first thing you will need to do when ripping a movie DVD to AVI is remove the copy protection. Most discs use a variant of the Content Scrambling System(CSS), but many also use other techniques. Although some DVD-ripping apps, like autoMKV, can bypass copy protection, they are not updated as frequently and aren't always successful at defeating new copy protection schemes. Your best choice , therefore, is to top one of the utilities that are dedicated to the task, such as Daniusoft DVD Ripper.
Daniusoft DVD ripper justifies its high price by bypassing new forms of encryption almost immediately after they appear. This apps serve as on-the-fly disc decrypters, stripping copy protection before your ripping or playback software recognizes the disc. Want o rip an encrypted disc to your hard drive? It is as easy as coping contents of the disc's VIDEO_TS files to your hard drive one you installed Daniusoft DVD Ripper. Regardless, before we continue, you should install one of this app.
You can download the software at this link: Daniusoft Best DVD Ripper, and install the app.
Once you launch the Daniusoft DVD Ripper, you can click "Add" to load Real DVD or DVD-like source such as DVD folder, ISO files, IFO files. Here we add a real DVD from DVD Rom.

After you add the DVD, you can edit the video effect by clicking "Edit" from the menu bar, this software video editing function is very powerful and utilitarian.
Crop – Cut off the black edge of your DVD movie to let you enjoy your movie in full screen by click the 'Crop' button.
Trim – As you have selected the clips to convert, here you can trim any segment of your clips to convert by click the 'Trim' button.
Effect- Set the Video Effects: Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and adjust the volume to modulate the effect. All the progress you can see preview clearly.

Next, select the output video format, this software supports various video formats, almost any video formats you can name, and it supports many PMPs such as iPad, iPod, iPhone 3gs, Zune HD, PSP go, Creative Zen, mobile phone Blackberry, droid, Nexus one etc. Here we select AVI as output format.

The last step, click the "start" button to start the conversion. The Ripping speed is fast and you will get the converted AVI files from DVDs in 1-3 hours. Of cause, the length of ripping time is depended on the size of your DVDs. Furthermore, this DVD Ripper offers the option to automatically shut down the computer when the conversion completed.
The original DVD file is near 5 GB, the conversion test on Windows vista 32 Pentium 4 single core system and it works very fast, which takes about 1 hours. And below is this DVD ripper performance screen.

So far, I guess you should try to convert DVD to AVI video by yourself with free DVD to AVI converter(handbrake) or this shareware one(Daniusoft DVD Ripper).
Attention:
Before you begin to use these software, you need to pay attention below items:
1. Understand copyright laws in your country before ripping any copyrighted DVDs.
2. Do not promote or partake in piracy. Although there is some dubiety over whether it is legal to copy DVDs for your own use, making copyrighted DVDs available in the public realm is against the law.
3. Understand that in the US the laws are unclear and conflicting, you might be able to rip a copy of copyrighted material for your own use under the concept of Fair Use. However, circumventing DRM may be illegal in and of itself, regardless of ownership of the IP or intent after disabling the DRM method. Read up on the DMCA and then contact your congressman!

I can't take out CD from the DVD drive. When I right click on my computer/E-drive the laptop stops(hangs?).


Welcome to Fixya.

Here are my recommendations for you to eject the disc out of the DVD drive.
  • Get a paper clip
  • Turn off the computer
  • Take a close look on the DVD drive, you should find a tiny hole where a paper clip's end can be fitted.
  • Straighten the end of the paper clip and carefully jam it in the hole
  • This should eject the disc from the drive and you can use the DVD drive as normal
Possible cause of this can be attributed to improper inserting of the disc (or anything similar).

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using Fixya.

Driver needed for TSST Corp CDDVDW TS-H653N SCSI CdRom Device please. DVD drive shown in My Computer, and MS says I have the correct driver for this device. But, it doesn't work.


If the computer still cannot read a disc, there may be a problem with the drive. Go to method 3 to troubleshoot the CD or DVD drive. If the computer can read the other disc, there is a problem with original CD or DVD. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. Method 3: Try a different disc drive If the disc is clean and undamaged, check whether there is a problem with the drive. To do this, follow these steps: 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. If the other CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be a problem with your CD or DVD drive. Go to method 5. If the other CD or DVD drive cannot read the disc, the disc may not be compatible with the drive. Go to method 4. Method 4: 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. If the disc is compatible, go to method 5. If the disc is incompatible, use a compatible disc or contact the vendor for a compatible replacement. Back to the top Method 5: 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.com If these methods do not resolve your issue, try the advanced troubleshooting steps in this article. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help, or you might want to contact Support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/ If methods 1 through 5 did not resolve the issue, you can follow these methods to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Method 1: Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive. To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps: Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:*.* HardDiskDrive:cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder. Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement. To continue trying to isolate the problem and test the CD or DVD drive, go to method 2. Method 2: Test the CD or DVD drive in a "clean boot" state If the disc is readable and undamaged, there may be some hardware or software that is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. You can test this by inserting the disc into the drive after restarting your computer in a clean boot state. This helps you determine whether any hardware or software is interfering with the CD or DVD drive. To test this, follow these steps: Restart the computer in a clean boot state. Note For more information about how to start Windows with a minimal set of drivers, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310353 How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state After the computer is restarted, exit all programs and applications that may be using the CD or DVD drive. First, right-click each icon in the notification area, and then click Exit. Note The notification area is located at the far right of the taskbar, near the clock. Some programs that are listed in the notification area do not have an Exitcommand. Therefore, you may have to click Quit, Close, or Disable, depending on the commands that are available for that program. Click Start, and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) taskmgr in the Open box, and then press ENTER. Windows Task Manager opens. Click the Applications tab. If any programs appear in the Task list, click the name of the program to select it, and then click End Task. Repeat the previous step until the Task list is empty. Close Windows Task Manager. Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, there may be other programs preventing the drive from reading the disc. Go to method 3. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the "Next Steps" section. Method 3: Change the CD or DVD drive configuration If there are programs that are preventing the drive from reading the disc, you can try to resolve this issue by configuring the drive to run in direct memory access (DMA) mode. DMA mode is a high performance mode for transferring data to and from devices. These include CD and DVD drives. To configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode, follow these steps: Configure the CD or DVD drive to run in DMA mode. For more information about how to switch your computer's disc drive controller to DMA mode, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 310751 Device settings are hard to find in Windows XP Reinsert the disc in the CD or DVD drive. If the CD or DVD drive can read the disc, you are finished. If the CD or DVD drive still cannot read the disc, try to troubleshoot DVD components by using method 4. Or, if you are not specifically using a DVD drive, you may want to contact Support. For information about how to contact Support, go to the “Next Steps” section. Method 4: Troubleshoot DVD problems If the advanced troubleshooting methods 1 through 3 do not resolve the issue, and you have problems specifically with a DVD drive, follow these steps to try to isolate and resolve the problem. Prerequisite You must use a DVD drive with a DVD logo on the front, not a standard CD drive. Step 1: Unplug any cables that are connected Unplug any cables that are connected to the video outputs of the computer. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, you may have problems with the video hardware installed on your computer. Contact the manufacturer of the video hardware for support or for a replacement. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 2. Step 2: Update the DVD driver Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain an updated driver for the DVD drive, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the driver. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated driver. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, go to step 3. Step 3: Obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder Contact the manufacturer of the DVD drive to obtain a hardware-based DVD decoder or software-based DVD decoder, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the decoder. Note Many video adapters help decode DVD discs. However, the video adapter may not fully decode a DVD movie. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive. If the DVD drive can read the disc, the problem was caused by an outdated DVD decoder. You are finished. If the DVD drive still cannot read the disc, make sure that the sound card in the computer is compatible with the DVD drive. To do this, contact the manufacturer of the sound card. Reinsert the disc in the DVD drive.

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.

How do I burn/copy a DVD


you have to rip the dvd using software like DVDRipper. Then you can burn the resulting file to a 4.5 GB DVD. Usually the movie will be around 7.5 GB and the ripper reduces the size to fit that.
