I have an un-formatted DVD-RW. I want to record music on it. First how do I format it so I can record music, and second, can I record music on a DVD-RW?


No you cannot record music to a DVD-RW. You must use CD-R media to record music as CD players cannot read DVDs. However you can burn the music to the DVD if you plan on using a DVD player to play the music. I beleive some recording hardware does allow you to use DVD's, but most use CD-R media or digital media such as a hard drive or flash media.

Can hp Pavilion a300n read Dvds ? i want to watch a dvd movie. But,when i insert the disc into the tray, the computer doesn't detect anything.. nothing shows up. What should i do?


Yes and no, Yes if it id fitted with a DVD player/recorder (normally says DVD on the front of the tray door) if not it will say CD. They are quite cheap to buy and easy to replace. Just as an after thought. I presume you can play CDs in it? if not then you might have a driver problem or it might be broken, try a music cd in it to check.

Have a Compaq Computer. My tower has two places wherein discs can be inserted for various reasons. - Can you tell me which insertion site i.e., top or bottom that will enable playing a CD - commercial...


Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

Dvd has video no sound, have sound on cd


First: Does this happen with all the DVD's or just one?
If all, do you have system sounds?
If not, check your sound drivers--reinstall if you have to.
If you have system sounds and no DVD sounds, you could have one of two problems:
You are using a DVD recorded on another machine in a different format than your computer likes. (for instance, you are trying to play a DVD that was recorded on a DVD+R instead of a DVD-R. These two DVD's are different and the DVD+R doesn't play well across systems.
You could have a defective DVD player and you'll need to replace it. I would suspect this if no DVD plays correctly.
You could also check the DVD program you are using.

Recording from sky planner to dvd


Yep all you will need is a DVD recorder Philips do a good low cost version DVDR 3380 and a Philips DVD+RW ( this is the type that you don't need to finalize before you can use it in your PC)

All you have to do is make a connectiion to the video out of the Sky box using the suitable connection normally a SCART lead in to the EXT1 or EXT2 of your DVD recorder.

Play the Sky program in your planner and hit record don't forget to select the time you require 1 (HQ) 2,4 or 6 (SLP) hours. It will take as long as the program take to run to record it.

The best way to get the DVD-Video into your PC is to use the excellent TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress from Pegasys use the Souce Video Wizard.

Then select the DVD-VR button this will read in the DVD content and then allow you to edit it and re-encode to almost any format.

If you select over 4 hours or recording most DVD standalone recorders will revert to Half D1 this equates to 360x576 instead of the Full D1 resolution of 720x576 (standard PAL for DVD-Video) you will need to use this filter to convert the half to full download it here Half D1 to Full D1

Computer internal dvd player/recorder won't record. it will play, though. I also have an external player/recorder that won't record either but plays. The internal dvd burner gets a message no recordable...


if both are malfunctioning it indicates an application error. Uninstall then defrag and cleanup your harddisk from system tools, then re-install your burning softeware. If your O/S is an old installation it might be time to try a fresh install. Also, I would clean both drive lenses with isopropyl and cotton buds just to make sure that is not the issue. My feeling is that you need to reinstall your O/S(windows)
