[QUOTE=ferguj1;2239382]So you were ripping and converting to .avi using magic dvd ripper. Well at least that is a little better for fitting the 6 movies to 1 disk. But I am still a little lost on the burning, sorry. You said that on some you used nero to burn and it worked fine, But then you tried to drag and drop the files using Windows Media Player? And it showed that it was burning to the disk?
Have any of the disks you made using this method ever played? What does it show when you view the drive with the disk in it, under “My Computer?”[/QUOTE]
Ok, No need to apologize. I need to be a little more precise on things like this. You know how you can make a play list on Windows Media Player (I’ll get to the Nero part in a min) then you also know that you can make a burn list. I made a burn list and burned using Window’s media player. Now, Immediately after burning (i know it is burning cause it will work on something in the dvd rom and then pop the disk out and i’m sure you know if you look at the disk just right you can tell if it has been burned on) i take out the disk then put it back in and it reads like it is blank. If i bring up the properties on the other hand it shows that the disk has only 128 megs left blank while the rest of the disk shows that it has been taken up. So when I put it in the dvd rom on my laptop (which is what i am using to do all this) it comes up that it is trying to format the disk. As if the disk was never burned on but it still only shows as having 128 megs of space to burn on. The only time I have used the Nero is for when I burned the movie back into the dvd format so that we can watch it on a regular dvd player. This way I figured that i can keep a b/u of the movies and when it becomes necessary to make a new dvd cause of the kids, all I have to do is select the disk that has the movie in question, Copy it in it’s avi form from the disk to my harddrive, then use the Nero to burn the movie in DVD form onto a new disk for watching on the regular dvd player. The problem I have been trying to get across is that the b/u disk(after burned) is still showing blank. I’ve tried everything I can think of on my laptop in the settings and can’t figure out anything that will bring up the stuff on the disks. I have 3 different media players and none of them bring up anything on the disks. I Guess I the to put in a lighter term is that I burned ghosts LOL I’m trying to keep a light heart in all this cause I know I can just redo everything with new disks and a different b/u program but it just erks the heck out of me to have waisted 7 blank dvd’s. I recently had an employment change(non voluntary I was laid off but found another job 2 weeks later) so money is ALOT tighter now and I can’t afford to be buying blank dvd’s even though they are getting cheaper by the day it seems. So any help I can get is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you again
