I hope I have posted in the right section here. It's my first post so please be kind to me!
Ok my problem/s. I need to format my computer as it's been playing up for a while. However I can't find a way to successfully save all my short home movies I have taken of my children. They are only taken with my digital camera so only go for up to 1 minute in length. Average file size is about 7MB.
Now they are too big too email. I tried uploading them to somewhere like photobucket but it just takes way too long and then comes back with an error.
I tried using Winzip to zip them but for some reason it's barely doing it. EXAMPLE. Original file was 7.73MB and after running it through zip it was still 7.43MB.
I have a burner but can't burn them. Apart from Nero playing up (ejecting my discs and telling me that they arn't blank) I am not 100% sure what I am doing. (I uninstalled Nero in hope to reinstall it and it would work, but now it won't go back on. Not sure if it's corrupted or if it's just from my computer having issues)
What I was aiming for was to compress the files small enough to send through email. Then send from my outlook express onto a web based email program like Gmail or Hotmail. But I don't know what to do.
I have about 30 or so of these short movies to save some how or another and can't bare to loose them as they are all I have in movies, of my children. But my computer desperately needs formatting.
Can anyone, in simple terms, LOL tell me how I can do this. I am OK with computers but fairly new to buring movies from a hard drive. I do have DVD shrink but I don't think I can use that to achieve what I need to, can I?
I really hope someone can help me. Thank you for taking the time to read my post
