Good free program to burn DVD-PAL .mpegs?

Q: Good free program to burn DVD-PAL .mpegs?

Simply put, as the title states, does anyone know a good free program that burns DVD-PAL format .mpegs into video DVDs (those that work in every simple and old DVD-players too). Hope someone has the time to reply, thanks in advance. And sorry if this is a common question or so, I just couldn't find anything with the search terms that crossed my mind
Edit: they're MPEG-2, to be exact.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i've got a nifty little cd player that play's mp3 discs. it doesn't support playlists, but it does allow you to play albums that have been sorted into seperate folders and allows you to jump from album to album.

i've always used nero to burn the mp3 cds because it lets you add mp3 folders to the burn list. however, i've recently lost the program due to a computer crash and misplacement of the cd.

so now i'm screwed. do any of you know of a freeware program that allows you to burn mp3's with folders to a disc? thanks so much. plus, if you try to do it with windows it won't be readable by my cd player. thanks!

The issue is that it likes to capture several frames after the initial frame.

If anyone knows of a good and hopefully free screen capture program that can convert captures to most formats (like JPG, PNG; etc) please let me know.

you could use windows drag and drop feature, just drag your files to the drive and start the burning process, it will ask you if you want to make it a live file system or a mastered system, choose mastered and this will create a data cd or dvd depending if you want that type of thing, but for audio cd's you will need something more, WMP isnt very good at burning audio cds and unless you have nero installed, it burns very slowly. I cant guide you on audio burning software as i dont use audio CD's, mine are all data cds as my car plays MP3s straight from disc.

Hey guys...I am trying to find a solution to a problem that I'm having. At work we have about 6 PC's that I would like to make drive images for in case of drive failues. I was wanting to use an external drive for the backups and was looking for a one touch feature but I don't think it would work with multiple machine backups.

I was trying to avoid having to install software on each machine to perform these backups.

So what I was thinking of doing is trying to find a program that can reside on the external drive and will run from there.

Does anyone know of a free reliable imaging program that will do this?

I had found one at one time that did just this and worked great but I can't remember for the life of me the name of the program!

Any help or ideas appreciated!!

Hi all,

I have come into a newer laptop. A friend had spilled a bunch of liquid on it and it refused to start. He got a replacement laptop and gave me this one. To make a long story short, I took it apart, cleaned everything, replaced a few things and it is now running.

What I would like to do is test it so it can become my new, everyday laptop. Does anyone know of free software that I can use to test it? Something that will stress the system?

Any help appreciated,

A:Free burn-in or system tester?

You could run ordinary hard drive tests from the drive manufacturer's web site to evaluate the hard drive.

There are also downloads like Prime 95 and Furmark. The former stresses the processor and RAM; I think the latter is mostly to stress graphics. Both are used by overclockers to put heavy stress on the PC to evaluate temperature levels.

You could also use Memtest86+ to test the RAM.

I'm not sure about other components such as the motherboard or power supply. If you don't have specialized tools, you may just have to use the laptop and see how it works out.

Hi Bleepers.

The burning section of my ConvertXtoDVD doesn't work any more. I re-installed a fresh download of ConvertXto DVD, but it still won't burn, although to converts okay.

At present I'm using ConvertXtoDVD to convert - and then I open up DVDShrink to burn the converted files from ConvertXtoDVD's folder. Works perfectly.

I've been Googling for a convert-and-burn package, but so far without without success.

Tried 'DVD Rip and Burn' - but couldn't get to first base with it. I couldn't find the files in the ConvertXtoDVD folder. What it showed were files that I've deleted weeks - even months ago. Very odd.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you.

I have several radio programs on my computer that I would like to burn onto CD's, the problem is that the files are more then 80 minutes long, but not necessarily more then 700MB.

I was using Nero Express but it tells me there is not enough room on the CD and to put in a CD that has more room.
