Preferred Solution: Computer no longer burning viewable video

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 may have missed this, but how old are your burners? It sounds like you need new ones. The average is 3-5 years, but I know people who have had them last longer.

My Kodak camera makes video with mov as its extension. the windows media player or real player don't support mov files. I am trying to make my video viewable to any kind of computers. My computer has QuickTime and it supports mov files. However, not everyone's computer has QuickTime.

How do I convert mov files into some kind of universal files that every computer must have it and can view it?

Any other ways to do it? Thanks

Hi Tech Guys,

Up until recently i have been able to burn movies & music using my Laptop with either Nero 7 Essentials or DVD SHrink, then out of the blue i get this error message during a burning process about 5mins into it:-

Device not available

Could not perform end of Disc-at-once

Burn process failed at 8x (11,080 KBs)

Also, when i last opened itunes i got a similar related error/warning:

itunes drivers for importing & burning CD's & DVD's are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall itunes.

I havnt tried that yet as i was scared i may loose all of my songs in my itunes library.
I cant remember ever installing other CD burning software to cause this problem so i am at a loss.

I am using Nero 8 (store bought version) due to all the neat DVD burning features and software included in the program. I have been using it with my Memorex 16x DVD Rewriter for a long time now to great effect until the last couple months or so. Now it seems everytime I use Nero Vision or any of the DVD writing tools to try to burn video onto a DVD I always get an error close to the end of the burning process. This is driving me nuts. I really want to be able to make my own DVDs. I have tried different types of DVD-Rs, etc. to no avail. I have attached one of the newest error logs from Nero below so maybe hopefully it will give a clue as to what is happening.

Thanks in advance!

All of the sudden, whenever I try to watch a movie online, or a youtube video, or anything like that, it takes a painful long time to load even thirty seconds of the video, and then stops and takes 5 minutes for the next thirty seconds. This has never happened before, videos usually buffer faster than I can watch them and all is good. It's not a connection problem, or a high traffic problem, as other computers hooked up to the same connection do perfectly fine.

A:new to video burning

Use the program DVD Shrink. This program will allow you to remove certain menu files and just get the movie.I don't think the movie will play if you just take out certain chapters though. Shrink will save it as a DVD format (Video_TS and Audio_TS) and shrink it to the 4.7 GB size.
In Infrarecorder: For the project select "Video Disc". Then place the complete VIDEO_TS folder into the Disc layout window.
Check the size of the disc in the status bar of infrarecorder.
Then burn the disc via "Actions"->"Burn compilation"->"to a Compact Disc" and make sure you select the right drive.

So, I recently reinstalled Win XP on my machine and for some reason the S-Video to my tv no longer works.

I get a picture but it's greyscale and can't hold the image still. The picture scrolls vertically down my screen in a really ugly flicker. I have no idea what would be causing it.

I've tried upgrading my videocard drivers to the newest Omega set but it didn't change anything. I even tried a new cable but that didn't do anything either.

My system is an AMD Athlon 64 3400+, with 1 gig of RAM. My card's an ATI Radeon 9700.

I am now using Win XP Pro 32 bit edition (I BELIEVE)'s all that I could get my hands on at the time. Evenstill, I don't really get why that would be causing the issue.

I have a laptop running Vista Home Premium & I am making a holiday movie DVD using Ulead Video Studio 11. I've used this software many times before successfully on a PC but now I would prefer to use my new laptop as the PC is old and unreliable. The rendering is complete and the .avi file is ready for burning but this final burning step just won't work - nothing happens when I click on the "Burn" button. In the end I gave up and finished the DVD using Windows Movie Maker but the outcome is not nearly as professional as what I get when using Ulead, eg chapters, menus, lead-ins etc. Is there some setting on the laptop that I may have overlooked regarding burning DVDs?

Hope someone can explain this for me.
I sometimes go to to download a video, then after, burn the video onto a CD-R. Simple procedure and it worked.
When I play it back on my DVD Player, it comes up as a VCD file and plays fine.

Now, all of a sudden, they are coming up as DVD files and will play the video but there is no sound!
Why would this change take place all of a sudden? And why the change in file formatting?

does anyone know what decode ris required and where i can download this decoder?

also, is it possible to add this video without the thumbnail image on the menu since i don't have the decoder?

any help is appreciated, thanks..

A:Burning video files to DVD

I'm not familiar with Roxio, but I believe you are going to have to have the decoder to get it to go on the DVD and be viewable on a dvd player. What seems odd here is without that decoder on your system you wouldn't be able to watch the video at all (and I assume you can since you want to burn it).

There is a program called gspot that is free that will tell you what codec is needed for the video file, so that might be a place to start until someone that knows Roxio better comes along.

Hi, I recently use my camcorder for family video I now like to burn it
on a dvd format but I don't have any idea how to do this :slurp: .

A:burning a family video on dvd, help.

What kind of camera are you using? Does it record to miniDV tapes, an internal HDD or cards? You'll need a software program on your PC to capture and encode your raw footage and the a DVD burner to make the actual disk.

As an example (and I'm a noob at this too so bare with me):

I have a Canon ZR400 video camera that records on miniDV tapes. I hook up the camera to my PC through a Firewire (ieee 1394a) connection and capture the video using Roxio Media Creator (note: Firewire is required to capture the video because you must capture at real time ie. 1 hour of footage takes 1 hour to download to PC, and you need the throughput of Firwire. USB isn't wide enough). Roxio basically controls the camera as it downloads the video to my PC and encodes it for editing. The miniDV tape is reusable but I never record on a tape more than once as I use them as my permanent archive.

After the capture is complete I open another program inside Roxio Media Creator called DVD Builder and start to edit the raw footage I just downloaded. When I'm happy I put a blank DVD R in the burner and tell Roxio to "Burn a DVD"). It defaults to NTFS format for US players but you can specify PAL for overseas. When complete it will play in any DVD player.

The raw footage and other stuff is stored on the HDD of the PC. These take up a lot a space so a lrge HDD is a necessity. Also, I'd suggest that, at a minimum, you have a 2.6GHZ level CPU (AMD 2600 minimum), 1GB of RAM, a 6600/800 level video card and 80GB HDD. 3.0GHZ (or equivalent AMD) level CPU, 2GB of RAM, 6800 video card and 160GB HDD are preferred. Also, for many digital video camera a firwire connection is required. You can get a PCI card with firewire embedded for $15 at Newegg.

NOTE: if ur burner is a little older, it might not support/recognize 700mb cd's. also, there are programs that can split ur video files into 2 parts. i think there might be a program called AV split or smething that does it. i'd search here: for progs. u might want to try and type in video files, or av split, or split, or something like that. and i also have a program, called peck's power join, which can take the 2 parts and combine them again if u want. i dunno the url for it, but search for it on google or something. k, hope this helps

I've seen my dad do it many times before (He can't help me atm). Basically i've got 26 or so files that are about 170MB each. How would I go about converting them to one DVD so I can watch them on my DVD player?

Like I said i've seen my dad do it a long time ago so don't say it's impossible. They need to all fit on one DVD and have a chapter for each file.

Please help! Thanks in advance.

A:help burning to dvd from avi and other video files

Does the process of using Nero Vision seem to go right through without any problems or errors or warnings? You could try transcoding the files ahead of time to DVD-compatible MPEG-2 files and try burning at a slower speed on Verbatim DVD discs and see if that helps.
You could also download DVDFlick ( and see if that program suceeds at the task as a troubleshooter for Nero. Or you might like DVDFlick so much better you use that all the time instead if it does work.

I have several funny video clips that I want to burn to disk... I was wondering what type of disk I need and if I can burn it on my current drive that I burn Cd's and pictures with, or if I need a DVD burner?


A:Burning Video clips

The type of disk you need is up to you. You can use a DVD if you have a lot of video clips, or use a CD (or multiple CDs) if you don't have enough to fill a DVD or that you don't have a DVD drive. Note that most video clip formats cannot be played on standalone DVD players and can only be viewed on a computer.

A:Burning Video Questions

Hi Sabrams.You are most likely just missing the proper video codec on the system that will only play the audio portion of the file. Comparing your installed codecs between the two systems via Control Panel is the easiest way to determine which one you may need. I'm not a big fan of codec "packages" and prefer to install only the codecs I need. You could also try the GSpot Codec Appliance but it is a bit dated. The developer is working on an updated version but who knows when it will be ready. Use it on the problem machine, not the one that the file plays ok on. It will tell you what codecs the avi needs and if the machine is missing it. Like I said, it's a bit dated but may work anyway.

Is sound like the method that you used to 'move some space' (???) caused the files located in that area to become corrupt. I hope you have a recent backup.

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.

A:Burning multiple video files to DVD

DVD authoring is time dependent not source file size dependent. Full quality single layer DVD is 1 hour, still looks good at two (higher compression), looks fairly good or fairly bad at 3 hours depending on perspective, really starts to looks pretty bad at 4 hours and beyond in my opinion. 4 hours on a double layer, 8 gig DVD would look good though because the compression would be about the same as 2 hours on a single layer DVD.

The only time you won't use up an entire DVD with video is if the video and extras is less than one hour or if the video is say one hour 15 minutes but the authoring program doesn't handle progressive compression and simply jumps to the next set point of compression which in this case would probably be 2 hours.

DVDFlick will automaticlly adjust the bitrate of the videos when processed that are added so that you'll always fill up the DVD and still get the best possible bitrate.

Personally, when I want to fit a lot of video and maintain much higher quality than standard DVDs onto one DVD I do so in .divx format but that require the use of a DIVX compatible DVD player for playback. Anything under two hours though and I just feed DVDFlick the video and it spits out a perfect DVD for me every time.

Hello This is my first post and I am hoping someone here may be able to help I have with Issues and Applications Video Burning Help been burning or Help with Burning Applications and Video Issues recording CD s and DVD s without any difficulty for some time now plus years so I was very perplexed and frustrated when two separate programs and then others appear to cause my computer - a somewhat new in computer years at least about months - to loose that capacity Help with Burning Applications and Video Issues The first recalcitrant read badly misbehaving app is one called Prism Video Converter I downloaded it in order to convert various video files to mpg so I could watch them on a DVD player connected to a regular television It is a trial version which I initially liked and worked quite well until two days ago Then without any warning it would crash when I attempted to add files for converted Worse the very same action occurred when I tried to record now in the program I always use Sonic- one which I have had before and which came bundled with this computer It crashed and My DVD which is similar as you know to the Sonic program - with more complications - took over and it too crashed When the menu box appeared asking me if I wanted to send it to MS I agreed and read something It all happened so quickly I did it write it down about the various codex involved Thinking perhaps another recording app might work I tried that The same thing happened- once I began to add files the application crashed I thought perhaps it was the new program- which is the only different item on my computer that I am aware of Thus I uninstalled the program and rebooted the computer I did reinstall it later - to the exact same result sigh I am more concerned however with the fact I cannot quot record quot or quot burn quot files since I need to back up data and create DVD s with some older VHS programs as a gift for someone they are video of him playing hockey and while he is a gadget person he is not into computers - it s sports that he loves plus just being able to do this on my computer These days it is an essential way to save files and backup data Since I have a gig hard drive and a lot of data on it I am quite concerned Much of is is thankfully already backed up but I do need to figure this out I tried several other apps and none of them worked Then I used an older but always superb HP DVD Writer Once again I used Sonic s Record and yet again it went to My DVD a program I rarely use but did use recently to create a DVD of the aforementioned hockey games and the program crashed providing some dialog box indicating that quot We are sorry but an unforeseen incident quot or words to that effect has occurred and the program must close Could it be a codex problem If so why is it acting up only now I also ran two anti-virus and spyware scans one with AVG and the other with Norton to ascertain if there were any problems - viruses or malware The first program found a list of cookies that I deleted medium risk and one malware that I had the program AVG quarantine The malware also listed at med risk had nothing to do with video programs however and after that was complete the comuter is continuing to act up and not allow me to add files to any DVD CD writer program regardless of the program or method ir Windows XP s own way of writing files to a DVD I am just at a loss of what to do I wonder if anyone has experienced this and has any recommendations Should I uninstall this quot new quot program and find better conversion software in the hope that might be it Still even when it was not there the issue was still there and unresolved Thanks in advance and I apologize for the length of this post Does anyone have any resolutions to what can I do to resolve this problem Janey in New Brunswick Canada nbsp

I should add that the device itself- the CD writer internal drive- and the external drive I had purchased for an older computer that had a CD drive but no DVD one -are both working properly, at least according to the Device manager.

I also know I probably have too much "stuff" - a bad habit of mine- on my computer. Would any of thee variables have any relation to these serious problems? Thx again!

I have read another thread with a similar problem to myself but did not understand a lot of it so pls bear with me and i apologise if it means going over it again.

Every time i try to play a video file (of any sort avi, wmv etc) whatever app i am trying to use will take up almost 100% of cpu and bring my comp to a crawl.

Just last night I noticed that also that when i tried to use Nero 6 to burn a dvd video the same problem occured, nero using 100% cpu and system crawling.

If anyone has any ideas or links to where i can get some diagnostic tools to provide some more accurate info pls let me know.

I've been using Final Cut Pro for awhile now and just can't explain the cause of this problem.

I exported a few Quicktime movies on my Mac of FCP project files I was working on and then burnt them to disc to use on my PC.

They all worked in Quicktime with the exception of one movie which was significantly larger than the others (3 GB) and was shot on HD as opposed to mini DV.

It gives me the error "Couldn't Open the File because it is not a file that Quick Time understands."

When I try to view this same movie on Mac, it works fine.

Any ideas as to the cause of this problem and how I can view this movie?

My wife recently bought a new computer and she uses AOL for her internet connection. Sometimes she wants to save a picture she finds online, but when she tries it, it will only save it as a .art extension. The only way to open the saved image is to start AOL and view it. I have tried to open it with Photoshop, PSP, MSPaint and a few other desktop publishing programs she has, but none of them recognize it. I have tried saving an image by opening IE and Netscape after she logs on through AOL and I get the same results.

Someone had told me that this is one of those things that AOL does to invade your system. I called AOL and they had no idea what I was talking about (surprise, surprise!). Does anyone know if there is a way to override this setup? She is currently running Windows XP and AOL 9.0.

Is there a way to burn photos (BMPs/JPGs) onto a CD-R so that they can be viewed on a DVD player (not a computer, but a plain-old DVD player hooked up to a TV)?
Could this be done as a slide show, using the DVD/TV remote FFW/REW to advance the photos?

I'm not sure how this started, but suddenly movie players no longer play *.avi files on my computer. When I open them in either WinAmp or Windows Media Player, nothing happens. The name is simply listed in the playlist, but there is no length listed and nothing at all happens when it's clicked on. It's not where it plays only sound with no video, nothing at all happens.
I can view them in video editing programs like Adobe Premiere or VirtualDub, so I know my codecs are in order, and if I right click on the file, it lists the codec and the length. Just none of my movie players will do anything with them.
Any ideas? They all worked this morning. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both players and, of course, restarted the computer. I also restored the registry to a known working backup, and no difference.

A:[SOLVED] Video files will no longer play in WinAmp / WMP, etc.

Hey Miles! "there is no length listed and nothing at all happens" kind of gives you a hint. The files are in the list because they WERE there, but now for whatever reason I don't think there actually seen by the players. Is this format specific or with all formats?

Also, you can write down all you current video settings in WMP, change them, reboot, then change them back and reboot again. Sometimes the registry build picks up garbage... changing them back and forth sometimes gets rid of it.
