Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I bought dvd r media,..im having problems copying movies onto it...any solutions?


Answers :

I have some important questions to ask you to find out what\015\012could be going wrong. Copying or burning DVD's takes a lot of skill and\015\012practice. It usually does not work the first couple of times. This\015\012is frustrating to everyone, not just you. I am going to give you some\015\012steps to go by and check for me.
\015\012My first concern would be this: Are you positive that your DVD/RW can\015\012read the type of disk that you bought. Is it a + or - disk?
\015\012
\015\012 The second question is: What software are you using? Nero works\015\012great and can convert movies to DVD format for you.
\015\012
\015\012 The third question is: How much free space is left on your hard drive?
\015\012
\015\012 The fourth question is: Have you made a folder on your drive to swap the\015\012DVD files?
\015\012
\015\012TheFifth question is: What processor is in your system and how much\015\012memory is in the system.
\015\012System properties.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012The Sixth question is: What operating system are you using? System\015\012properties.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Now these would be my answers: 1. If your DVD/RW burner can read the disk that\015\012is a good thing, because you are using the correct disk. You might need a\015\012firmware update that you will have to get off of the web site that your burner\015\012is made by. This is almost like a driver that tells your DVD burner what\015\012it can do.
\015\012
\015\0122. If you are using Nero, What version are you using? 8 Is the best\015\012for DVD movies, but some older versions will work. Have you read the\015\012manual to the burner software? Is the software legal and store bought or\015\012downloaded legally from the company?
\015\012
\015\0123. To figure out the free space in your computer in Windows XP: Double\015\012click your (my computer) icon if it is on your desktop. If it is not on\015\012your desktop you can look under system properties to check this and many more\015\012things that I ask you to check.
\015\012
\015\0124. You will see in just about any software where it asks questions for\015\012you to make a folder to allow for swap files. You have to have plenty of\015\012free space on your hard drive for this. A regular DVD can take up to 8\015\012gigabyte of space and a double sided disk could possibly take up to twice as\015\012much. You also have to clean this folder out each time so you can have\015\012room for the next disk.
\015\012
\015\012You need at least a Pentium 4 processor and 1 gigabyte of memory to even get a\015\012DVD to half way work. This will take up to 4 hours. You really want\015\012to have a Dual or Quad processor and 4 gigabyte of memory to make a DVD. \015\012This will cut your time from 4 hours to close to 1 hour or less.
\015\012
\015\012The operating system does not really matter, but you usually do not want to do\015\012anything while you are making a DVD or CD, until you know that your computer\015\012can handle more than making a DVD or CD. The biggest problem that\015\012people have when trying to make a DVD or CD is that their computers do not meet\015\012the requirements. This also goes for some software or especially games.
\015\012
\015\012I hope that I helped you figure out where you went wrong.
\015\012\015\012I\015\012can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a\015\012fixya. I did more than try; I told you exactly what had to be done.
