I am trying to burn a DVD of 9 video clips each at around 400Mb, all of them are AVI. I have put together a Menu, but its telling me that I can only fit 2 of these clips on. Whats the best format for burning to DVD? And does it change the format automatically to be a bigger file?
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.

My guess would be theres something wrong with the dvd drive.I also have the same computer.Either the laser in it is shot or needs cleaned or the whole drive has failed.
Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?
Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.
Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.
Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.
some nero burning user veteran??problem burning cdr ,dvdrs.i cant burn a cdr.with windows media player is posible.also i use clone dvd with sucess. with nero is posible to erase a cdr-w.the problem is i cant record a cdr.when it comes to 3% to 8% the program tell "the burn failed"some advice?thanks for the attention
I am a "Nero Veteran", war veteran, etc.. etc.. The reason your having problems is simple. Some discs cannot be copied, as they may be copy protected or contain errors. If you are unsure if your disc can be copied,
run a trial in the "simulation" mode. Click on "More" at the bottom of the page and select "Simulation".

When I burn cd/dvds with Windows 7 built in burning software and windows media player all my burns are successful. When I try to use Nero, CD Burner XP or imgburn, it fails. My computer is plenty fast enough(2.8ghz, 4gb ddr2, 250gb sata hd) and I tried reinstalling windows 7 without nero or deamon tools and tested with CD Burner XP, it still failed. I am using Sony blank CD's and also tried a few other name brand. I am burning at the lowest speeds. I purchased a brand new dvd burner and the firmware is up to date. The error I am getting is "Could not write to Disc". It fails randomly anywhere from 3%-30%. Any ideas? Again, windows 7 native burning works fine but other software does not. Same pc, same blanks, same burner, same hardware just different software. Any Ideas at all?
Bottom left corner of Spectre x360 is BURNING HOT !!! There are many other messages on this forum describing the same problem but HP SUPPORT IS NOT ANSWERING THE QUESTION !!! HP SUPPORT, PLEASE DO NOT JUST POST A BOILER-PLATE PRE-WRITTEN ANSWER TO THIS. In other messages on this forum, multiple replacements of Spectre x360 ALL HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. Is HP going to fix the problem and do a recall, or what? How do we know that HP is aware of and working on this problem?

I have been burning my dvds with convert x to dvd with no problems up until this . Every time I go to burn a DVD it will convert but when it burns it is taking so long (I usually burn at 6x) I did a speed test and it said it was burning at .05%. It would probably take 5 hours to burn a normal movie,Anyone know why this may be happening? Thanks in advance
If you are converting to a format readable by a dvd player they burner will burn very slowly depending on the source file. Now does you cpu max out when burning?
Ok, i'm new to this CD Burning. I have Nero Express, and i'm having a little problem with it.
I've copied an Audio CD to a CD-R, and it plays fine, but there are still space on it, and i wanted to put a MP3 (it converts to CDA really nice also) together with the already burned tracks, but i can't. Everytime i put the same CD, i get the folloqing message:
"This midia cannot be recorded
Please Insert another midia."
(Sorry if it's not right, cuz i translated from portuguese)
Can i do what i want?? How??
Sorry if it is hard to understand, it is hard to explain.
You cannot append any audio files to an disc that has been completed. Once a disc is completed it cannot access the remaining space. Especially with Nero Express. Once a disc is burned it is "closed (finalized)."
This is just a simple explanation.
I believe Roxio's Easy cd creator lets you add files to your disc as long as you don't "finalize" it. Until you finalize it you will not be able to listen to the music.

Have been burning CDs through Windows Media Player forever; no problems. Suddenly, when I choose 'Burn CD', nothing happens. No error messages.
BUT, when I choose a previous playlist to burn, it works. The non-burn problem seems limited to only recently downloaded music playlists. These same playlists do play on my computer, so they're obviously recorded and working.
I used my 3rd CD Burner and I put my music files onto the CD-RW. Everytime I finish the disc is ejected and CD Writing Wizard comes on and says I have to finish writing the disc. I put the disc back in and it says it doesn't have enough free space when it does! I see the files inside the CD-RW and I can play it but I have to change them into Windows Media Files. I plays fine too! But when I put it in a BoomBox it keeps saying no disc! I have no idea what's going on!
It sounds to me as if you put too many files on the disk and there was not enough room for it to complete the lead out etc remove a couple of files and see if it completes ok ....
Hi to all,
Here's a strange one, I've just re-formatted my hard drive and re-installed xp ( not the first time, I prefer this to restore ) anyway I've tried to burn three music disc's using new blank cd-r's. I go through all the motions ( using nero 5.5 ) I do my compilation as normal, hit burn and nero " burns " the disc. When I try and play the disk on my walkman I can skip through the track numbers but get no sound. When I check it out on my pc in my computer it says Free space 0 bytes, Total size 0 bytes. I am sure this is not a hardware problem so what else could it be ?
I've been recording sucessfully with the same set up and software in the past, any suggestions welcome and appreciated.
I am running Windows 98SE.
I download from Kazaa V2.1
About three weeks ago I had to reinstall Windows.
Since then I am not able to burn anything from Kazaa.
In the past I had no problems burning anything from Kazaa.
I can burn from CD to CD.
It goes through the motion of burning, it shows up that there are tracks on the disc, but when I play it back - there is no sound.
I burned an entire music CD and replayed it with no problems. Is it Kazaa or something else. Are there properties I should be checking... HELP!!!!!
I am running Windows XP Professional.
I have just started getting problems burning DVD's. I have the same problem with Clone DVD2 and also DVD Shrink 3.2.

Up until now it has been fine.
Thank you in advance.
Hi I decided to make a copy of my windows 7 home premium dvd,So I went about it with the use of dvd fab it copied the dvd to my folder on the hdd okay.But it has copied it as a 7zip file.
Is that normal or should it be something other.Any help Please.Should I have used another program for the job?
I would have used ImgBurn.
It's a 2 part procedure:
You first create an image file from the contents of the original DVD. It should be saved on your hard drive as an ISO file, not 7 zip.
You then write (burn) that ISO file to a fresh blank disk.
Above is a link that takes you through it, including getting ImgBurn.
I know nothing about DVD Fab, so don't know where you went wrong.
It is possible there is an ISO file inside that 7 zip file. You'd have to unzip it to find out. If it is an ISO inside, then all you'd have to do is burn that ISO to a disc.
Then of course confirm that it will in fact boot your PC and begin the install procedure.
Hi I need help with burning cds. For some reason I can't get any of the software on my sytem to burn cds. I have Roxio, Windows Media Player and neither one will work. Can someone here help me??? I am running XP. Thanks in advance Ms. Wrenie
I'm burning a CD for my first time and this is getting ugly
Nero first shows me a message saying I had to rename some files and folders because they weren't compatible with the CD file system.
"The following Joliet files or folders had to be renamed to make them compatible with the CD file system:"
And then another message show up telling me some files and folders had a wrong compilation.
"This compilation does not meet the ISO9660 standard; it contains at least one folder with pathdepth of more than 8 levels and/or a pathname longer than 255 characters. Are you sure you want to allow this?"
Guys what should I do, should I change the name of the files to a shorter name? Should I organize my files and folders diferent and how?
I am having the strangest problem with Roxio ECDC 5(i think is the ver) I was able to burn video cd from mpeg based files for a long time then I got one of those error report errors. No I can not burn a cd using roxio for anything. I have tried re-installing and nothing seems to work. I can use other burning utilies (nero is the one i use mainly) with out any problems. I seems though when I receive the send error report message for any program I can no longer use that program for anything. Any suggestions on how to resolve my dead programs.
My suggestion would be to dump Roxio and stick with Nero.
When I started using XP I had all kinds of issues with Roxio so needless to say I'm now using Nero on all of my machines.....:D
It's probably one of my own quisks but I really don't like installing two different burning programs on one machine.

Just installed XP today, tried to burn some CD's. The process was great, prob is I got errors on disk and made a few coasters. Is there a way to do simulated burns, or figger out why there are errors? I tried a RW disk even and now its a coaster too. Anyone else have this prob, or input about this? Adaptec software sucked, but at least I could eventually make it work. XP should at least have an error message to tell me what is wrong.
I have an audio file (mp3) that I am having trouble burning to CD. The mp3 is 42 minutes long as it is an entire album. The problem is that it only burns about 20 minutes of it to the CD. When I play it in Windows Media Player it shows and plays the full 43 mins. but when I open it in Easy CD it only shows as 20 mins. long and it only burns about half of the file. Any ideas what the problem is and how to get the whole file to burn? BTW I am using EZ CD Creator 5 Platinum with all updates.

Are you using a DVD/CD-RW disc or an -+R disc? RW's are harder to work with. What is the manufacturer of the blank you are burning? Only use name brand blanks and not generics. (eg) Sony, Verbatim, TDK etc.
Only burn at the slowest possible speed for the medium.
If you are having problems with the built in Windows burner, download and use IMGBurn in my signature. And choose to burn Image to Disc.

You need to edit out the unwanted portion prior to burning. I like the free version of Goldwave for editing audio.
I used to have CD/RW Software Easy CD Creator 4.02E but once I up graded to XP I couldn't use it. So I dowloaded and now have the upgraded full version of WinDVD and Roxio. Things seem to work great.

Hi, I own a Dell (P4 processor, Windows XP, 1GB RAM) and I want to put a DVD burner in it. Can I just buy any burner and install it, or are there compatibility issues?
Hello all. I just bought a Sony DRU510a burner. I have a few questions:
1.) Does anyone know of some very thin printable labels to put on them once burned? I don't want anything thick that will bubble up.
2.) Can anyone recommend some good burning software that has a good feature set for adding menues?
Thanks in advance!
I would use sonix cd/dvd label kit. And there is no question on this if your trying to burn dvd's get the new dvd xpress v3.01 allows you to burn entire disc with menu's and all on one dvd. And another have to for burning music,games,data is nero 6 ultra awsome burning software.
CD-R are not writeable(of course,otherwise they would be a CD-RW)
Question on CD-R
---does this mean once you burn them,regardless if you used all the space on the CD-R or not ,one can not burn them any longer?
in other words,i burned only one song on a CD-R,played it,......then reinserted the CD-R to burn more...would not burn.
It is possible to record videosomewhat on a CD-R?
Background: I attempted to burn some mp3's to a CD-R using Nero. I selected the convert to CDA option. Nero appeared to burn the files. When I go to play them, nothing happens.
I've looked at the file structure of the CD-R, and it appears that the files are in fact there, and do have a .cda extention...but the WMP won't play them.
Can anyone help? What did I do wrong?
Is there a good program to burn mp3 data cds? I want to be able to organize the tracks in folders and move them around in any order. The reason i dont like to use Nero is that it automatically puts the tracks in alphabetical order and I cant switch it back.
Also Roxio's cd creator doesnt work well on my comp so I'm looking for something different.

Now, the computer will not recognize a blank cd. I can still use cd burning softward to burn onto that cd, but until I do so, the computer says the drive is not accessable. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks in advance.
Right click on Start>Explore. Right click on your burner>Properties>Recording. Make sure there is a check mark in enable recording.
For awhile now, everytime I burn a VCD, the last half~the last quarter (it varies, but it is always the last section of the clips, never the beginning) of the clips do not have audio. I just recently burned a VCD which had 20 clips. The last 7 or so did not have audio. A similar situation has a happened before, multiple times. One time I burned about 8 clips and the last 3 or 4 did not have audio. I am using Nero Express 126.96.36.199 Gateway. I've never had any problems with Nero other than this, and the program has always worked quite well. Does anyone have an idea as to why this is occuring?
(P.S. I know I posted this in the removable media section, but that section doesn't seem to get hardly any visitors. Plus, you never know, it could have something to do with XP )
VCD's have strict encoding standards:
352x240 resolution@ a constant bitrate of 1150bps,and audio @ 44100/196 kbs.
What is the total length of your clips in minutes? VCD uses 10 mb/minute of time, Nero could simply be dumping the audio to fit to the cd or it's encoding the audio to VCD standard and is not being successful.
It could also be a codec problem but I am not sure how.
Try burning to cd-rw to test you will not make so many coasters.
Use something besides Nero, it's great for burning but not for making VCD's try something like Tmpgenc(free for VCD-Mpeg1)for your encoding and google the last freeware copy of VCDeasy for compilation and burning. You will get much better results.
What program do I use to burn an ISO file. I have Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4 Basic edition and I can't do it with that program. Which program do I use will Nero Burning Work or a new version of Easy Cd Creator or another program... Please suggest one that will work the file right now is called Windows 2000 Operating System.iso its 370mb also when you mention which program to use let me know the procedure on how to make a disk. I hear that iso files should be burned on disk.
Nero will do it: http://www.cse.msu.edu/~cse231/How to burn the iso's%20provided%20by%20CSE%20in%20NERO.htm
I've backed up some of my games to my external hard drive. But it's running out of space, so I decided I should burn these to DVDs and keep them. My question is, a normal DVD+R, is 4.3 GB approx. Now how do I burn the ISO image into them, when they are a lot bigger than that. Obviously I need to split them up. Now can anyone tell me how to split the Image up, in that way if I want to reinstall a game, I jsut have to change the disks, like the retail versions. Thank you.
Hi i have LG hl-dt-st dvd-ram gsa-h54n DVD-ROM
with ashampoo burning software 2009 i can burn DVD-R and CD-RW easily but cannot burn CD-R.
I have tried other softwares and diff CD-R's, i can simulate normal with them but when it starts burning after a min or so it gives me error saying cannot burn, or burning not completed.
I have already tried unintalling and reinstalling on rebooting.
I have update to latest firmware but even after all this i have wasted 2 boxes of new CD-R's trying again and again.
Please help me
this is strange, i tried Nero 6 and burned CD-R without any prb.
Wonder why other burning softwares didnt burn it
I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I would like to know how you can take a file that?s on a DVD disk, like a game, copy it and burn it onto 2 CDR's.

How did you make the first DVD?
I have a toshiba satellite A205, when I try to burn a cd it goes down the list burning, but when finished the cd is blank or about two seconds of the first song only

i dont burn a lot of cds, never really could till i got a new computer, which i have. But i am not too sure of burning cds now that i can and want to. First thing i burned one music cd that has songs from online, and it plays fine in the computer cd-rom, but in my sterio if u change songs it takes longer than other cds ever did. than one my protable cd player the cd skips on most songs, and this last through out atleast half the song. so why would this happen and how can i fix it?
Second, i only ever burned music cds, so now i want to burn files that are on another cd and on the HD. I only have one cd-rom if that matters. What is the best way to do this?
first post your hardware specs so that will help us solve the problem. for a problem like this there are a number of things that play a role. one your burner, maybe you got a faulty burner, maybe you need to update the firmware of the burner, change the ide cable that connects the burner to the motherboard.
another is your media. i remember when i bought GQ cd media, most of my songs would skip when i put the cd on the stereo. alot of the cds didnt even worked. another factor is probably your burning software. try updating the software if there are any updates. good luck and keep posting if you need more help.

Hello, I am having a lot of troubles burning this one DVD. I am burning my DVD on NeroVision Express 3. When I try to burn one of my movies it says that I am over and I cannot burn the movie. Now my DVD's are 4.7 GB capicity. The movie is a little over 4.3 GB and it says it's over the space. Now is there a way I can overburn or something to get my movie on DVD. It's only over like 20mbs and I'm getting very frustrated.
Thanks in advance.

If you don't have a burning system in your computer, is it possible to be able to burn cd's by just downloading some software? And if so, what kind of software?
Its your choice... whatever burning software you want. I personally like Nero, just cuz its user friendly and it has everything...http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/cd-burning-52115.html

Question: I'm trying to burn audio recordings onto a CD-R. Once I burn the CD and it closes, the file name is not copied and the properties on the file state the file was burned December 17, 1994??
It does this no matter what program I use to burn the CD. Media player, Sonic, drag and drop the files from desktop to D Drive, Etc. When I play the audio it only says Track 1.
Can anyone help!!!
I am having a little trouble burning a VHS tape to a DVD disc. My wife had been looking for a movie for a long time and finally found it. Problem is of course, is that it's on VHS. Well her mother has a DVD burner she we thought she could purchase the VHS and then just simply burn it to a DVD.
Problem is, when I press the record button on the DVD recorder, I get a message saying protected material. It won't let me burn the VHS to the DVD.
I had heard a while back about the movie companies and such placing "codes" or something on tapes to prevent you from recording them to another tape.
Is there a way I can go around this or what can I do short of waiting until the movie comes out on DVD?
Thanks for any help
I have Windows XP and I have a movie that is in .WMV format. How can I burn it onto a DVD using Nero Burning ROM 8? I think it can only use ISO files?
You need the Nero suite, specifically Nero Vision I think, to make a DVD out of a wmv file.
DVDFlick (www.dvdflick.net) is free and can do the job.
Hey guys whatsup, i download many movies, many in avi, wmv and dvix local format. I have nero burning suite 6.0, How would I burn a movie onto the dvd so that it would play on a dvd player? I know nero converts files when burning, but what option would i choose? Or does anyone recommend an easy to use program? It would be greatly appreciated.
I doubt we will be allowed to answer this, due to the nature of how you get the movies, if they were home movies however we could probably tell you.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/burning-dvd-help-139468.html
I've tried a few different programs (Nero and Acoustica) and they both give me the same error messages, so I'm wondering if anyone out there might recognize a hardware/config problem.
Here's the message:
ERROR: 'Write' command failed on device 3:1:0 unexpected
ASPI error (04h 00h 00h) Last burn speed was 4
Haven't seen anything on either software site that relates to this error, so I'm at a bit of a loss.
My drive is a LITE-ON LRT-52246S SCSI, and I'm running WinXP.
Thanks in advance!
I think this means you need the ASPI drivers loaded.
Try uninstalling the software and drivers, and reinstalling. Take note of any option to install the ASPI drivers.
Try a search on Google for your drive, and ASPI drivers. (By the way, are you sure of the type? LRT? Do you mean LTR?)
Thanks for responding.
I'm not really burning but pretty soon I will.
I've had a virus on my system for about an year now but recently i upgraded my anti-virus and removed it. but it had proliferated my computer so much right now i open some windows and they just close themselves before I'm done using them. Affected applications are mainly the desktop properties (so i cant change my wallpaper) and the wizards especially Add hardware wizard. See why I'm burning?
Hello, I have a HP CD-Writer Series 82000e plus and I have having trouble burning a cd.
I have had "Buffer underruns" which I understand somewhat. I don't know if it is caused by the writer or the disc is to fast.
The writer burns at 4x600 kbs, or 2x300 or 1x150 kbs. I am assuming that the 4x600 is the slower speed. I have noticed that when the cd starts to burn it gives a burn time of approx. 16 minutes, however when time gets within 4minutes left it fails.
I might mention that I am using nero smart start-with cdRomburn..
It was suggested that maybe the discs I am using are high speed discs. I don't know enough about that to figure this out. I am using memorex CD-R52x700mb's 80 mins.
I wonder if someone could give me some advice.
The slowest speed is the 1 x 150.
What are the specifications of the PC that you are using to do the burning with?
The buffer under-run is where the PC cannot keep up with the data required.
Also you should never use the PC for any other task when burning.
Is this an external or internal CD drive? What WIndows version?

Obvious things -
1.Go into the properties of the CD drive in My computer.Make sure "allow CD burning from this drive is checked"
2.Go into the Device Manager and make sure it`s recognized and doesn`t have a problem.
3.Reinstall CD drivers and associated software.
First of all I hope I'm posting in the right forum!! Anyway, I am the using Nero StartSmart 'Burn DVD-Video Files' to try and create a DVD that will play in a DVD player from a .avi file. The problem is that when I drag the file I want to burn in the appropriate section the 'burn' option is not highlighted. I then tried the 'Make Video CD' option; in this case the file is then too large for the blank DVD disc.
Could it be i need to convert the .avi file to a different one?
Any help is much appreciated!
Sorry I don't have any specifics for you, but I found these 4 articles that discuss .avi to DVD using Nero.There might be some information in there that you can use. Sefy's DVD Backup Guide v2.6 How to convert an NTSC (23.976 fps) XviD file to a PAL DVD How to create Anime DVD's from MKV, OGM, and AVI filesHow to convert DivX to DVDR using DVD2SVCDIf none of these help, try searching the site I got the links from, videohelp.com, as there's a load of information on CD/DVD burning and conversions.This is a great resource site for anything video related.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/60855/burning-dvd/
I have windows XP on a computer but i need to reformat my hard drive, buti lost the XP disk so is there anyway to burn xp to a disk
Call Microsoft, tell them you lost your disk, they might be able to send you another if you can prove to them you bought it. If its a store bought comp without a official XP install disk then you will have to call the manufacturer of the computer and ask for restore disks for your model comp.
Can anyone shed some light on the procedures to burn a program

Depends on the burning software you are using. All it is is an image of something. Use the file > burn image option. That's what it is in Nero.

Is there anything non essential that can be removed from the .iso? I have had to do this a few times to fit a DVD.

I tried to convert the file, but it cam up as a tpr file that is only supported by TPMGEnc. So I tried to convert that file. In the save project area I told it to save as mpeg. But when it was finished it had 2 parts to it, a w2v and wma file. HELP! I am a novice and really want to get this thing into a format that can be read by a usual dvd player. Thanks PCClan

We're using Roxio Burning Software. We're downloading MP3's from the internet. Sometimes the songs burn ok. Sometimes the first song won't play or the CD won't finalize. Any Help?
If you are using RW switch to CDR. If you are already using CDR switch brands. Reliable brands are Fuji, Sony, TDK, and Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden. There are more but you will probably find some of those around.
Make sure you burn disc at once or DAO. It writes the table of contents first that way and there is no chance of its running out of space before it can write the TOC.
