The DVD format is VOB. In the Windows Movie Maker you can save movies as DV-AVI, but in order to burn them onto a DVD disc you should convert them into VOB files using burning software (for example- Nero).

I type a document, store it and when I retrieve it the entire doc. is scrambled! Tell me what to do.please

In what document format did you save it? When saving files like word document you should save the file as ".doc" extension so that other versions of MS Office can recognize the format. Now, what you need to do is open and edit the file from the PC where you typed it then try saving the file again with a compatible format like ".doc".

Thanks and Regards,

After saving to disc, the file types are not compatible with video editing software. how do i change that?

There are many format conversion programs for video files available for free download from the internet. You just need to find one that will convert the files you have into the files format your editor needs. I usually go to for this kind of thing.

Did not pass genuine windows validation

This problem has 2 solutions.
the first is called the hook (in my terms). if you possess a genuine windows XP key then activate it online
else i.e. (crook)
there is a registry key for the genuine validation. it will make your windows genuine.

1. Open a 'New Text Document' (Notepad) and type in the following:
(better copy and paste as it is)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]
"CurrentBuild"="1.511.1 () (Obsolete data - do not use)"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents]

2. Save the file with File Name XP GENUINE.REG
In place of XP GENUINE you can give any name of your choice but the important things to take care of when
saving this notepad file are
save the file name with .REG extension coz its related to registry

3. After saving, open it with Registry editor and your registry will be edited accordingly making your windows XP genuine forever. (if it prompts for a confirmation to edit the registry choose YES)

Restart Your PC and enjoy the genuine version.


How to transfer videos on the computer??

hi friend,
step 1
Check out the specs of your camcorder and computer, to see the kind of connection you need to transfer video to your PC. Most Macs and some PCs come with firewire cable ports. Check for the port.
  • Step 2 Install a PCI card, if your computer does not support firewire so you will be able to use the firewire cable. You can buy one at an electronics store.
  • Step 3 Shop for video editing software if you plan to edit your video. Find out what kind of file format your video editing software is compatible with. File formats are avi, mpg, mov, moov, movie or qt.
  • Step 4 Make sure the computer and the camera is on. Plug the cable into the appropriate location on your video camera, which varies on different models of camcorders. It should be labeled.
  • Step 5 Plug the other end of the cable into the computer in the appropriate spot. This will vary depending on the model. It will usually be located on the side or the back of the computer. Your computer should automatically detect your camcorder.
  • Step 6 Open the footage in your video editing software and capture it if you plan on editing it. If you just want to put the video on your PC, just save it to your hard drive as an avi file.
  • Step 7 Use your video editing software. Make all editing changes. If you need help, read the tutorials in the software.
  • Step 8 Copy the digital video to a DVD when you are done.
  • Step 9 Disconnect the firewire cable. You will not need to turn off the computer to do this.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • If you don’t see an firewire port, use the windows "device manager" to find out if it is installed.
    • If you are using Windows XP, then you will have the software to capture video with the Windows Movie Maker program. If you have an older windows you will need to buy video editing software.
    • You will need a lot of storage space on your computer, because video files tend to take up a lot of space.

    Closed a tab without saving changes

    Maybe. Reopen it and click "EDIT." If you are in luck, you can click "UNDO" Depends if you shut down the program or not. If you closed the program totally or shut down the PC, it most likely won't work.

    I have converted home videos on my PC this way. I have a Sony camcorder whose output connects
