Re: WHY CANT I COPY MOVIES TO DVD please HELP!!!!

Are you trying just to burn the AVI to DVD, or are you trying to create a DVD that is watchable in a DVD player? If the latter, you'd need to install a program that converts your AVI to DVD.

You can try this one for free:

I'm sure others will chime in with their various suggestions.

Firstly we have to determine whether -R/-RW media can be burned on your burner as this could explain the error you get.

So what is the model number of the Toshiba?

Secondly you need to convert from AVI to DVD as already suggested.

Post the model number first though.

Re: WHY CANT I COPY MOVIES TO DVD please HELP!!!!

With RecordNow you can only burn any type of cd and only data DVDs!!!
I may be wrong ...


I suggest you goggle (translate) the following as it is in French:

"Rapide, et pratique, car Record-Now gère efficacement différents formats : il peut extraire les pistes d'un CD-audio pour les convertir en MP3, graver des DVD-audio, créer un CD de fichiers WMA avec gestion des licences, accepter le format AAC des iPod, réaliser des disques de démarrage, effectuer des copies à l'identique et même utiliser les « images disque » aux formats.iso et.gi.

Contrairement à ses grands concurrents, il ne permet pas de graver des DVD-vidéo, des VCD ou des SVCD, ni même de réaliser des diaporamas. En revanche, il facilite la sauvegarde de données personnelles en recherchant sur le disque dur les mails, musiques, photos et documents. Une fois les fichiers triés, il ne reste plus qu'à sélectionner ceux que l'on souhaite archiver."


the bolded part mean: It is not able to burn DVD-Video, VCD, SVCD, ...

If you have a DVD-RW drive you won't be able to burn to a DVD+R disc, check to see if you drive is dual format or not ?.
