Question about TDK (DVD+RW47BXS5) Storage Media

1 Answer

TDK DVD+RW 4.7GB

I can't burn onto these discs! I have tried to copy video files onto these things but my computer doesn't recognize that they're empty (2 different computers by the way). The properties of these discs are 0 bytes free space, 0 bytes used space. This is when I right-click on the drive containing them, and go to properties in the menu. Am I supposed to format them? This is not an option anyway. What do I do?

    Hi everyone. Tee-hee, I figured it out. I didn't have the software needed to write onto the DVD+RWs. So I downloaded CDBurner XP Pro 3, and it worked just fine.

    Thanks anyway for the opportunity to get help.

    I used to have Nero, way back a few years ago. I found it was such a touchy program, and it always caused my computer to crash. So I steered clear of it this time. So far I'm having no problems with CD Burner Pro 3.

    Thanks tho...

How to burn video cd?


Many of these drives came withdriver and video editing software that includes writing the final product.to a dvd. My LG drive came with cyberlink video software. This allows loading video files in many different formats, editing using the included tools to add titles, cut out parts not wanted, setting chapters, then produce by burning to the drive onto a blank dvd disc. Blanks come in dvd-r , dvd+r , and dvd-rw formats. The disc will play on dvd players. When you look at the disc with your computer, all you can see are the marker names. You cannot copy files from video discs. Other video editing software are: Cyberlink, Roxio, Etc... If you need product software, go to the link and enter your drive model number. http://msa.lge.com/product_listing?pageIndx=0&pagerId=0&catalogId=285&orig=index&md2psid=2-131468373284123264

I have several files on the computer which I would like to move to a CD....i.e. pictures, or documents. I am doing something wrong because it does not allow me to copy a file to a CD???? probably my lack...


You have to burn the files to a CD, if you have Windows XP or Vista it should do this for you, the reason you are getting the error is because unlike the hard drive, the CD is not a read / write device (ie once you copy files there they are there forever, unless you are using a re-recordable cd)
You must have a CD drive that is capable of recording data, this will be a CDRW or a DVDRW drive, most computers now have these, but if yours is only a DVDRom or a CDROM, you will not be able to copy.

To burn files to disc, Put a CD in the drive
Then get all the files you want to copy and put them in a folder (saves time)
Now click on the CD drive icon in MY computer (right click and open)
Drag the contents of the folder you created onto the cd drive which you have opened
You may get asked to format the disc, this is normal (prepare the disc)
You will then see the files you have added (says "files ready to be burned to disc")
Right mouse click on the empty space in the area where the files have been added and a menu will come up, with the command "burn to disc"
Once complete the disc will eject and you need to press finish

You can add about 700MB of files onto each CD

I made a video from my JVC GZ-MG130 on Windows Media DVD Maker. When I try to burn to disc it fails after 99%. I tried new disc that should run at 16X but it failed again. Also, tried to run at slower...


Have you tried Nero? I want you to use the Power Cinema NE(Editor) its include in this package. Open the video file in the editor(Copy/Edit) Advance feature, you can do some editing if you wish and Produce. It will ask you what format will be the outcome(DVD Mpeg2). Once finished, this file is ready for burning. Burn it in Nero or Roxio as Data file since its already a DVD file. Hope it helps

Im trying to review pics copied onto a dvd-r disc and i can't review them


Are you able to see the files on the DVD? Try copying the files onto your computer first before viewing them.If the problem continues, try to use a different computer because your DVD/CD drive might be having trouble viewing burned DVD/CD(s).

I cannot either delete files or format a cd rw disk. Xl files are on the disk


Correct. Copy all the files into a folder on your disk-drive.
Delete the files. Use software (NERO, or ASHAMPOO Burning)
to "erase" the CD-RW disk, and then to write the remaining files back onto the "now-empty" CD-RW disk.

Home video on pc from digital camera, want to burn onto dvd disc?


Hello,
You can buy a USB-HDD unit and use it to copy over all your files, program files, documents, including JPG video. You can then copy them to the laptop. The unit is also a good way to backup your computer files in case it crashes and you don't loose all your data. Good Luck, RAC

Transfer my minidv camcorder film onto DVD


You need to download the movie to a computer and store it in a video file. Then you should be able to use a software program to burn it to a DVD. I use a TIVO for watching and burning my videos. You don't need a computer. You save the video by recording it to the TIVO's hard drive then after it is on the drive you DUB it to an empty DVD-R disc.
