    Encrypted Data On Dvd

    Point being the MPAA and RIAA have more resources and money to spend on encryption. You should always be aware that things are never 100% secure. All encryption can, theoretically, be hacked. The purpose of encryption is to make the cost of that hacking so astronomical as to be impractical. I will state the facts again. They are cracked within days or hours of release. cdanteek

    Putting Data On A Dvd Video

    A data or multisession dvd should work. If they fit in sze and would only be viewable on a pc. If you have a blank unformated dvdrw try and see. If not - + R are only $0.30 now! I have put slide show's, mpeg's, data, and mp3's on dvd - + R data projects as backup with no problem. cdanteek

    Encrypted Data On Dvd

    It's a waste of time! Sony and BMG's new encryption's are decrypted in a matter of hour's of release. Don't think your the only one that could access this data. cdanteek

    Backu My Pc, Why Still Using Floppys?

    Create an autorun.inf file using Wordpad, Notepad, or any text editor. It should look like this: [autorun] OPEN=(name of program to run).exe For example to autorun setup.exe: [autorun] OPEN=setup.exe make sure the .exe and autorun.inf files are in the root directory of the cd. cdanteek

    "I said," "This is for Nero. Roxio should be similar." "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ahead\Installation\Families\Nero 7\Info" "A Digital GURU could step in and amend this after checking."

    Lost Cd And Key !

    I would suggest this for advanced users. Entering the registry and changing something could break your box! From the menu at top export the registry just in case you change something! This is for Nero. Roxio should be similar. The Roxio box is not avaliable to check now. Try this Open the registry by clicking on 'start' in Windows, then click 'run' and enter "regedit" in the text field, confirm with "OK". Select the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ahead\Installation\Families\Nero 7\Info Doubleclick the entry: 'serial7'. Here you will find your serial number. The serial number is xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-... A Digital GURU could step in and amend this after checking. cdanteek

    Making Coasters

    Roxio is not alone Nero and InCD, and Sonic DLA I think a packet writing program is just as bad! It is the worst program you could install on your system. DVD+-R at $0.30 usa and 160GB hard drives at $69.00, if you want to drag and drop that's the way to go! Phase change media CDRW DVDRW is garbage and should never be trusted with anything that can't be replaced. Good question after 5 upgrades to easycd creator, the God's must think we want it! But they decided to wipe out the old boards and replace it with a new powerfull search engine with few post's to search! It has been stated don't argue with them! cdanteek

    How To Set Video Bitrate Below 4.5 Mbps?

    You could make your project's to dvd format audio ts video ts to the hard drive. Have a walk about at afterdawn.com free shareware "re-authoring and re-encoding". One has a double pass with custom target size. It will allow you to add your projects in the order you want. Try 2 or 3 encode and test results. There are guides available also. cdanteek

    Blank Disk Quality

    Cddvdspeed or Nero cddvdspeed same same, disc quality test PI errors, PI Failures, and PO Failures works with the drives I have owned. Old Sony, Nec, Benq, and Liteon. Plextor don't allow its use in cddvdspeed. Plextor 740, 750, 755, the newest are rebaged BenQ's, same as Sony DRU810 rebaged BenQ the DRU800 is a Liteon rebaged. Plextor has Plextools that has its own cddvd tests. K-Probe was wrote for Liteon drives. There are other programs PXscan and Dvdinfopro. The industry standards PI errors(Parity Inner Error), PI Failures(Parity Inner Failure), and PO Failures (A POF is a Parity Outer Failure) are 280, 4-9, 0 these nubers are debated often. Always scan with a DVD Burner never a CDDVD Rom at 4 to 8x. Some are better some a worse, some show jitter. A bad disc will show bad and a good disc good, some drives will show better or worse but close. MIJ media is hard to find and agree is was Grade 1 media. Verbatim is all Tiawan now and it burns better in my Plextors than TY. I was going through a 50 pack of ty and a disc burned terrible in a scan. Tossed it in the trash and the next burn same files scanned good. So all disc's are not created equal from same spindle. Sam's club sell Verbatim - + R 8X media for $14.97 a 50 pack made in Taiwan and give me excellent results. cdanteek

    Tdk Dvd-rw Size

    A more detailed explanation but the same fact as above. These are old definitations, before the standardization. Single layer DVD = 4,700,000,000 bytes. 1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte, so 4,700,000,000 , 1024 = 4589843.75 kilobytes. 1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte, so 4589843.75 , 1024 = 4482.27 megabytes. 1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte, so 4482.27 , 1024 = 4.377 gigabytes. Most burn programs limit to 4.35GB = 4.464MB. That gives a 18MB safe zone on the outer edge of the disc. That's where over burn comes in with some programs.

    Either Disappointed In Emc8 Or Else Using It Wrong

    Are these " comedy-rips" available on DVD? The statement above seems to suggest a P2P download. Put to cdr and get a set top DVD player to play Dvix, or try to convert to vcd or svcd. What the people above don't understand is source files. Svcd, Vcd, Xivd, and Dvix work because you start with better quality. To try and convert back to higher DVD format who would try. You have what you have. If the DVD comedy is available go buy it. I got in here because people were telling you untruths about DVD facts. These facts are available to anyone with a computer and google. I'm still waiting for the example of 12GB squeezed on a DL about 8.5GB disc that they told you about. I doubt I will get a answer! I'm done here. cdanteek
  20. Try downloading this small free program and see if it works. If it works with your drives you know where the problem lies. CDex - version 1.51, 1.9MB's http://cd-to-mp3.audiolaunch.com/cd-ripper/ cdanteek

    Either Disappointed In Emc8 Or Else Using It Wrong

    Nice guy or jerk has nothing to do with facts. Help in untruths is not help. Offering constructive facts on this forum is what I was doing. If you disagree and want to keep helping people by giving them your opinions instead of the facts. Then I guess it's there fault. I disagree with your opinions and stand by the facts! cdanteek

    Either Disappointed In Emc8 Or Else Using It Wrong

    A example Tin Cup DVD 2hours 14 minutes, VBR Mpeg 2, 3.00 to 4.00 MBPS. Now if you watch this pressed disc, it has excellent quality. So you tell me where the low quality is! This squeeze method you keep talking about is fiction. There are DVD5 single layer DVD's 4.7 GB actual amount you can burn on disc about 4.35. Then DVD9 9.4GB actual amount you can burn on disc about 8.5. Free software and consumer grade hardware can create the same bitrates to fit to these disc's, just like the big boys. So if you would like to tell us why your Emc8 only allows 1 hour to a single layer disc, simply play it in power dvd or win dvd and click the details button. Then come back and tell us why. I still want to know of this 12gb the big boys squeeze on a dvd9 thats only about 8.5 actual size. Don't look for one there not there. When HDDVD and BLUEDISC show up they will be larger better quality and higher bitrates. The dvd will have more capacity BLUEDISC up to 50GB. I don't like advice that is fiction not fact. cdanteek

    Blank Disk Quality

    Go here and read media quality by grade. http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm "Skip or glitch" This has to do with PI errors, PI Failures, and PO Failures. Tools for scanning these errors are cddvdspeed or Nero cddvdspeed same same, Dvdinfopro, Plextools ( Plextor drives ), Pxscan, and Kprobe ( made for Liteon drives I think ) There is heated debate as what these scans tell. One thing all agree on is the lower the better. Some drives scan better than others and two scans on same disc might get different results. There are standards for good quality burned disc's. You will have to do your home work here and read. Search the items I have mentioned above. cdanteek

    You should think about this statement. DVD FAQs Regular DVDs are made through replication: the process of "pressing" discs in production lines that make a new disc in seconds. The vast majority of commercially available DVDs and DVDs printed in copies larger than 1,000 are replicated. A variety of expensive machines are used to create a glass master, create metal stamping masters, stamp substrates in hydraulic molds, apply reflective layers, bond substrates together, and print on disc. Replicated discs, like those you rent from the video store, are silver or gold on the disc's bottom surface and are 100% compatible with all players. cdanteek

    What planet do you live on, where you squeeze as much as 12GB on a Dual Layer Disc? Tell me just one such disc! There are many dvd5 single layer 2 hour plus movies out there. Want a example? cdanteek
