Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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 it again onto its own disc so I can delete the original content from the dvd and use it again. This works perfectly well with the dvd-rw but with the dvd rw, although I can watch this on the television, I cannot copy it onto the hard drive. I tried uploading it onto my computer (which I managed to do) but it still will not download onto another disc.

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.

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.

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

CD/DVD problem


It might be that the DVD's you are using are damaged / scratched or of the wrong format. Some DVD- burners won't take DVD+ dvd's for example.

I have Norton 360. I am instructed to put in a new DVD for backup, but it is always rejected. I read on the Memorex box that the disc can be updated. It is DVD+R. Will you please help me?


DVD is actually a Licensing Authority which holds the patents and does licensing for the people who invented various aspects of DVD.  This is relevant because UDF 2.6 onwards (that would be the DVD filesystem) allows not only discs recorded in multiple sessions but updates including writing the same file with updated content...as long of course as there is room left on the recordable media.

  What are you reading on the Memorex box anyhow?  I notice ' Re-Writeable' on DVD-R and +R all the time, though of course they're not rewriteable through normal ; maybe there's some thing where you they process them in an oven and reuse them, but it's unconsistent with the +R standard, and you should definitely double-check things at their website.  DVD+RW and +RAM have to be ' erased ' before they can be reused by doing a burn of that variety.  I am pretty sure you just need to buy more DVD+Rs or -RW or -RAM, and not expect to reuse +Rs you bought for 20 cents each.

     The most important thing here of course is that you've given the wrong category; you should use or create one for Norton 360.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
