Q: DVD Burning, Just getting started, Burn software advice please

Just a rookie at this please forgive me. I"m good on processing/ ram/ Hdd. I now have a DVD player and a DVD Burner. I Understand the basic levels of DVD discs, and I thought my DVD Wizard pro that I bought 2 years ago would take off and run, but it didn't. My burner is 8X16. Is the disc that came with it supposed to make it burn or do you have to go aftermarket like 1.5 years ago. I'm just lost. Please send me to the education I so desire.

I recently bought the newest version of Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burning Software. I installed it on my computer and I create a project, but when I go to burn... it says that I need to insert a blank CD. The problem is I've done this already and it keeps ejecting the CD saying there is no blank CD in the drive.

I originally thought that maybe the CD Drive was malfunctioning, but when I click on My Computer and look at the CD Drives' properties, it reads that I have a blank CD in the drive.

I have tried to uninstall, reinstall, and update the driver for the hardware and that has not solved my problems.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have just started making slide shows with Microsoft Photostory 3 from Windows and would like to know what the best software program would be to use to burn these photostories onto a DVD (one not too expensive). I am looking at Sonic MyDVD since the limited edition was bundled with my Dell.
Any advice will be welcomed.
Thank you

No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).

Instead of asking for them, why don't you give Handbrake a try and see what you think.

Windows 7 Home Premium (and higher) comes with Windows DVD Maker which is simpler to use, but if you need any help with it, here's a tutorial on it.

Of course, if you want to go open source and have more control of what goes on your DVDs, then there's these:

Some new DVD Super-Multi drives and Blu-ray ReWriter drives usually ship with some software, usually Nero is preferred.

And we were debating whether we'd want to keep using ImgBurn as a preferred choice for burning *.ISO files, but as of this point, all signs point to NO. You might have to use the Windows built-in burner.
See the discussion thread covering this.

That's all I have on this matter. Just don't want to see someone booted off of here in a hurry.

Until recently I've been using Nero StartSmart to burn avi, wma and divx files onto DVD's for watching on a normal DVD player, I've just had a problem with my PC and ended up losing this program and now I can no longer find the installation CD so have lost it. Just wondered what programs you guys would recommend for converting and burning these files onto DVD's? I don't mind spending a bit of money so i'm not necessarily after a free program.

I found the ability to create menu's, chapters etc very useful on Nero so preferably this would be needed on any software I do purchase.
Cheers in advance for any advice.

I don't quite understand. When I burn a compilation on a DVD-R, using CDBurnerXP, it asks me if I want to leave the disc open or finalize it. I click "Leave the disc open" of course. Well, I thought this way you could add more data later on. It seems I was wrong. I can never add anything else because it says the disc is full. Why??? Must we absolutly need a rewritable DVD to perform this task? I'm not trying to delete or overwrite anything. I only want to add data. It doesn't make any sense if we can't add data and have to use another disc all the time. What a waste!

A:Can we burn again on a started DVD-R?

Ok, it was a stupid question. I just remembered. You can't write again on DVD-R once you just finished burning.

Again, what a waste. I'll have to wait until I have enough pictures to fill a DVD before burning. I might risk losing data if my computer crashes though. I think I'll go with DVD-RW instead. Unfortunately, they're more expensive and burn quite slower (2-4X).

ok, before nero burned my cd's nice and quick and the used read buffer always read at about 98-99% and i think the Recorder Buffer Level / state was always just greyed out,but im not positive on that.
Now my cd's burn real slow and my Used Read Buffer just goes anywhere from 5%-95% and my Recorder Buffer Level/State jumps up and down as well.
The only things I can recall installing/screwing with since i used it last is installing clonyxl and clone cd, and i added wnaspi32.dll to my system 32 folder because clonyxL needed it to run.
ive tried taking wnaspi32.dll out, but it did'nt help. so does anyone know if theres a software conflict between the programs or have any other ideas for me? I've wasted 3 cd's already and need it to stop. thx if you can help

ok my boyfriend's car only plays music through radio and cds so I thought it would be great to burn him a music cd and it looks like my laptop can do that (it says "cd-rw" on the disc drive slot) so I put music on a burn list and burned it to the cd and when it was done the cd popped out but I wanted to see if the music was on there so I took the cd out and put it back in and my computer says the cd is blank. I don't understand, the driver software is up to date and I even downloaded a program to help with the burning process and even the program says the cd is blank ???

A:laptop says it's burning a cd but it doesn't actually burn anything?

G'day Roxaboxen, and Welcome to BC
How sure are you that you actually selected the songs to other words there just may be a mistake in the process you followed....
or....the cd you used....has it been around for a while....and possibly been put in a cd player before..?.....or was absolutely brand new...?
Read this.....and see if any of the steps prompt you...

If you want to make a standard music CD that will play in nearly any CD player, choose the Audio CD option.
As you burn an audio CD, Windows Media Player makes temporary copies of the WMA and MP3 files in your burn list, converts the copies to another format (known as PCM), and then saves the converted copies to the disc. Here's how to burn an audio CD:
Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Player.
If the Player is currently open and you’re in Now Playing mode, click the Switch to Library button in the upper-right corner of the Player.

In the Player Library, click the Burn tab, click the Burn options button , and then click Audio CD (this is the default choice).

Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD burner.
If the AutoPlay dialog box appears, close it.
If your computer has more than one CD drive, click the drive you want to use in the navigation pane.

If necessary, click the Clear list button to remove all items from the previous burn list.

Find the items in your Player Library that you want to burn to the audio CD.
For example, you can search for a particular album, browse for individual songs, or locate a playlist.

To create a burn list, drag items from the details pane (the pane in the middle of the Player Library) to the list pane (the pane on the right side of the Player Library).

If you want to change the order of the songs in the burn list, drag a song up or down in the list.

If you want to remove a song from the burn list, right-click the song, and then click Remove from list.


Don't worry—removing an item from the burn list doesn't delete it from your Player Library or your computer.

When you're satisfied with the list, click Start burn.
Burning a disc might take several minutes to complete.
If you have more songs in your burn list than will fit on one audio CD, you'll have the option to burn the remaining items to a second blank CD.

A:I have a AVI/DVD burning question. How do I burn the AVI video to fullscreen?

Well I'm assuming it has to do with the aspect ratio. It is probably supposed to be 16:9 (widescreen) and you burned it setup as 4:3. You just need to look in your settings in WinDVD and change that.

It's not the drive or the disks, it's the way you are using the software. This is probably best in the Software forum, or if you have a friend who does a lot of burning, ask them to help you check the checks.

I'm using Vista Business 64bit. I've created a task to play my winamp playlist file (.m3u) as my alarm for the morning. I've tested it and it works fine: it will wake my pc from sleep and log into my password protected account, then plays my songs from the list i've created. My problem is that I don't see winamp being run at all; just the music going on in the background. So here's my question: how do i interact with winamp when it's started by the Task Scheduler?


correction: my pc is awaken by the Task Scheduler but it stays at the login page and the music will just keep playing in the background.

Hi, thank you for reading my post.

I Run Nero 6 with vision express for burning my movies, but what i have noticed when trying to copy an .AVI to Nero it does all the converting and burning ok except on play back there is a very slight pause every second or so throughout the film.

This periodic stutter although not too noticable is watchable but i would rather try and get a exact copy. The split second pause doesnt affect the sound or sync yet on the original avi played on the pc there is no stuttering so its something being caused by the recoding.....but i dont know how to rectify it.

I have tried copying at the slowest and fasted speeds but nothing helps..

Any ideas anyone.

A:Need advice on DVD burning programs (video)

What you'll need is proper video editing software. Nero is ok but it's essentially a burning package that's evolved to cope with DVD video. It doesn't have the options of a dedicated video creating programme. The main home user ones are Pinnacle Studio, Sony Vegas and the one I use, Ulead Video Studio. I've tried all three but Ulead is by far in my opinion the most user friendly so I stuck with it. I also know therefore that it does all that you ask in your post. I never hear bad things about Sony's programme, Pinnacle has a reputation for being buggy and resource hogging by comparison.
You can get a fully working months trial of Ulead's Video Studio and try it for yourself.

I also am receiving the error "memory referenced at 0x77f585c0" could not be written. It most often happens when I am using Mozilla to view web pages. I has happened with IE 6 also though. I found a site that said the problem was related to PhotoShop, but I don't have PhotoShop on my PC. It always happens when loading a web page. If I close Mozill and return to the page, it works fine, so I am unable to recreate the problem.

Any ideas?

Is there software available that i can get and leave running on my computer for a day or so to burn in the system and test all its paramaters?

A:Burn in software

It's not a myth, its kinda like screensavers, it is no longer needed. Long ago we used to "Burn in" systems to check everything out(usually 72 hrs)

A "Burn in" of today consists of booting up and checking everything out(maybe a couple of hrs at the most)

Some manufacturers still claim to do a burn in.

Thanks a bunch

A:Neo+G Burn!! What Software?..HELP

based on what I read at the neo website, burn with nero as DATA. When setting up the burning session in Nero, do NOT drag the main parent folder over to right-hand pane for burning. Instead, first open that main parent folder in the right hand explorer pane, then drag ALL it's contents (except the main parent folder itself) across to the left hand pane for burning. Nero will burn the files in the same order you have organised them, which is usually alpabetical or numerical order anyway (that's dictated by the way Windows works, not you).

A:Cannot burn to CDR with inbuilt Win XP software ?

You can't make an audio CD with the XP built in burner you have to use Windows Media Player or better yet Nero. If you want to make a Data CD of your MP3's then you right click the file with the MP3's in them, and choose Send To... your CD Burner. another file pops up saying " You have files waiting to be sent to the CD". Click on "Write these files to CD" and it will burn them.

Hey all,

Windows 7 had a built in DVD maker that was very helpful in burning video (.avi?) files to DVD*, but the program is not supported in Windows 10.

Burning the files straight to disk even from the media player app doesn't seem to allow the video to be played on normal DVD players.

*So either I am using the wrong format (.avi) and need to convert it, or I need software that can properly burn video files to disk as I need it to.

Any recommendations are most helpful. Thanks!

A:Best software to burn video files to DVD

Maybe buy mom a low cost Blu-ray player

A blu-ray player will play the dvd if it is burnt as a data disc and will play a lot of formats (depending on the make)

A Data DVD will not play on a regular DVD Player unless it is compatible with the format of the files.

if you have a DVD Player that is JPEG compatible... it will recognize a Data DVD that contains JPEG Photos and play a slide show.

As a general rule when planning to play the DVD on a regular DVD would create a Video DVD which requires DVD Authoring software.

I have used nero from version 3 on through the latest in version 6 however that is not compatible with vista. I tried nero 7 and really dislike it.
So I am wondering what you guys are using for burning software and if you like it / works without issues.

I was using an old version of Nero and updated to Nero 8 Essentials. Found out it is a trial version.
I was upgrading because the old version, the audio did not sync with the video.

Anybody know how to get the audio to sync in Vision Express 2.0?

If not I hear bad things about Nero 9 and wonder what other programs are available.

I capture video off vhs tapes to mpg2 files and burn them on to DVD's

Also would like to have program to be able to watch TV from the tv tuner on my capture card.

Thanks for any information.

That was a common complaint/problem.

Your best bet would be to get DVD Flick (Free) and see if that suits you.

Just wondering if there is any good free burning software I can download on-line.I see quite a few but don't know if I should be concerned about spyware/adware issues.Do all free downloads come with certain issues such as pop-ups etc.Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.I'm currently using WMP11 and am un-happy with it.
