dvd burner will not burn dvd's regardless of programs I try
I have an IOMEGA DVD burner that I bought @ a yard sale. I have downloaded 4 different burning programs and purchased DVD PRO by
pinnacle,, NONE of these will work. IOMEGA tells me since my recorder is so old and outdated they have no software!! ALL these programs say they will work no matter the dvd rom make provided they are recorders , CAN anyone help me short of buying a new dvd burner with the software included?? Thank YOU !!
Did you try CDBURNERXP?
It supports many drives.
As to replacement, this is a big world so I can't guess if you can order from newegg.com
never heard of it ??
well 1 more attempt at circumventing $$ being spent is worthwhile to me , I live on a fixed income and my PC is my lifestyle since I am disabled. I will try to download this program , however I used bearshare and lime wire which I am a paying supporter only to learn that the software I downloaded had been pirated so I have little faith in downloading from "FREE SITES ". ... But , Thank You for
responding, who knows??
Wowser. CDBURNERXP is free and
Easy to find with google.com No piracy involved and completely on the up and up.
I find it a wowser you looked to virus infested P2P first for a free program.
I have a condition moving towards mobility disability, so
my online reading hobby will increase. I'm a technology dummy. Not to really come arcoss as scolding, but I wouldn't touch any freeware or shareware without relying on referral from places like these c/net forums or computer magazines - with the proverbial 10 foot pole.
Yes, I've dumbly stumbled into sites that collect your e-mail address & get you into a hundred spams per week. I don't want to touch pirated software & if I wanted viagra that's my business. A friend's small business upstart got sold computer consulting that didn't take long to know they couldn't update as they'd been set up with unauthorized copies. No shortage of crooks.
I'm surprised so much computer magazine info is accessible, at least after the next issue comes out, for free. & don't be afraid to post newbie questions on places like c/nets OS & software blogs. Wonderful that sometimes a real expert will walk you through what seems like a big obstacle.
From a technophobe rather than technophile, best of luck.
How old is the DVD player??
My first DVD player I bought in 2000 won't play burned DVDs.
But the cheep one I bought for $50 last year will.
The newer DVD players will play burned DVDs and a lot more.
DVD burners are very inexpensive, $30~50 will get you a VERY GOOD one.
As Bob said check out newegg.com John
2001 made in malasia,, and yes i can purchase a LITEON DVD burner complete with software for $ 38.95 @ WALMART. Didn't want to spend any more $$ but it seems that would be the best move is to go new VS: saving $$. What was the make and model u got ?? Thank You for responding. michael
um......so no one wants to answer the ORIGINAL question?
the problem could depend on many other things. a majority of the dvd players out there have no idea what a jpg files are. most of the major brand name dvd players produced within the last year should be able to read these jpg or picture cd/dvd's.
9 times out of 10, its the dvd player and not the actual software. i havent touched nero in a while, but i think there is an option in there to burn a picture slideshow dvd. that will basically string a lot of pictures together into a single long "slideshow" and convert that "slideshow" into a file that your dvd PLAYER will recognize and you can play that slideshow automatically on your tv.
Thanks for replying.
The DVD player (cheap recorder actually) will play a CD with jpgs but wont play a DVD with jpgs. I thought I'd read somewhere that DVDs created on a PC couldnt be played on a DVD player but if a CD is created on a PC and it plays why not the DVD ???
just make sure your "cheap" dvd player/recorder actually supports +r and -r dvd's. if for sure they do, the last thing you have to do is "finalize it". the player can't read the dvd movies as a data disk so it has no idea when the start and stop is. finalizing it will give it a starting point (so it can start playing and pull up a menu) and a stop point (so it knows when it needs to stop).
Hi sorry to sound stupid but how do you finalise a DVD on a PC ???
I've seen it on the menu options on the DVD recorder when you are recording but dont know hoe to do it the other way around (ie) finalising a DVD created on a PC to allow it to play in a DVD player.
The DVD player supports DVD+rw and DVD-rw
