Conversion Problem

by 3cpmoore / January 30, 2006 4:17 AM PST

Am operating XP Pro. Have captured TV programming on external drive using ATI, but cannot copy the file to DVD. Neither Nero, Studio 9, SonicMyDVD, nor DVD Shrink will accept the file. In Details view, the file Type indicated is not an extension, but rather the name of whichever player is used. I believe the file to be mp2, but am hamstrung because Nero rejects the file. Anyone?

"using ATI" what?

Some ATI recording programs used their own proprietary file format. You might use some ATI tool to export it to a more common MPEG or other video format.

Details are far too slim in your post.

Also, Explorer does hide file extenstions if you don't set them to show. Why not change that setting?

Thanks, Bob, for info

Difficult to provide all info needed when what info needed is unknown. Will see If I can discover how to reset Explorer setting, and perhaps find an ATI export tool.

Link to manuals.

Hmm, there are many versions of said software. But this tells us they may be PROPRIETARY.

"The ATI Multimedia Center? can play these multimedia files:
? High-definition video files recorded from DTV using the ATI
Multimedia Center? Library."

You should research if they provide a tool to convert these to compatible video formats.

I agree that I need to do research, that's why I'm asking my question here. It's part of my research.

Setting to use mpeg. But I currently don't have this card so I can't tell you where it is. But remember this feature.

Some look for exact step by steps, which isn't possible when I don't have the hardware setup at the moment.

Have you looked over all the menus?

Sorry I've been a couple of days getting back to you on this. Just took delivery on a new Sony SXRD HD TV and been going through the learning curve on that. I believe I may have found a solution to the mpg2 conversion challange, thanks to your ATI site info. I don't see a way by which I can attach a copy of the info I've found, and can't copy and paste it because it's a .pdf flie, but what I'm trying is on pg. 38 of the All in Wonder 7.5 manual provided on the site. Unfortunately, I have no way to check it out right now because have yet to tackle the ATI "reharnessing" set-up for the new TV set. Soon as I accomplish that, I'll for sure get back to you on it.
Thanks again

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
