Dvd To Divx Copy Fails


arp35@elmore.rr.com

Question

Hi all,

I am trying to convert a .IFO DVD file with its associated .VOB's into an .AVI DivX file. It goes through the encoding process and even finishes the process. But for some unknown reason the converted file is never created. It is as if the process never completed. I've included the .LOG file which shows it destroying at the end. Why? Please help???

Those are the same steps I took. I'm currently at work but will try it again but with a smaller file. I noticed you used an .iso file. I used an .ifo file. Yours being a disc image, mine are the raw files off of a dvd. Could you try it using a DVD? Perhaps only choosing a small preview feature from the dvd? I'll let you know how it goes...thanks for the help!

Using the method Gary pointed out appears to give you more options for the output file.

 

In either case, I'm confused where you say you used an .ifo file as your source. When i try to navigate to what I want to select from, I can get to .iso files (which is just an image of an entire disc), video folders, or discs. I can also go down to the video folder on a disc, but it gives the same choices as just selecting the disc. I can find no way to select a specific .ifo file. All selections are done on the right side where all the 'movies' are listed. Select the 'movie' you want, and click ok.

If you are trying to convert a DVD to DivX, why aren't you using Media Import? There are several DivX options. Just click the EDIT button.

 

The reason I don't use Media Import is because, after I open it, as soon as I click the Video tab, Media Import closes without error message. I have never been able to get Media Import to work, except for Audio tab, importing from an audio CD. This was so in build 801 and now also in build 805.

 

I have tried with DVD+R and CD R disks on which I had burned short videos made in Videowave and/or MyDVD. I have tried both my DVD drive and my DVD/R drive, with the disks inserted before opening media Import.

 

Disk copier does work with the same disks, that Media Import won't work with, no problems in selecting one or more components, converting to Divx to file. The saved file is fine.

 

PS: After posting this I thought I would try the following: place audio CD in my DVD drive and the movie DVD in my DVD/RW drive. Then I opened media import, clicked on Audio: that offered me a choice of sources and I chose the one with the audio CD. Then I clicked on Video, and now it did not instantly close, but offered the DVD/RW drive as a source and I was able to import and convert a component. Maybe that is a work around.....

It is bad manners to 1) Hijack a thread (start your own) 2) Type in all caps (unless you are visually impaired - if so please post that). Having said that - this post may not be read/responded to by some posters because you attached it to a thread that is several months old. DivX is a highly compressed format that has good quality. You need a DVD player that will play DivX format. Compression like that will reduce the quality to a point that it may be unwatchable (your decision). When you go to burn, burn to an iso file at best quality and then use disc copier to fit the resultant iso file on the disc. Of course, you cannot do anything with a copy protected disc.

 

If you want to respond or ask another question, do so in a new thread.

 

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF TRANSFERRING DVD TO DiVX?

I BOUGHT EMC 8 BECAUSE THE AD SAID I COULD COMPRESS A 9 GIG MOVIE TO A 4.7 DISC. I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW.

No one has a solution? I also tried to add video files to make a DVD using MyDVD. After adding the files it would not compress them to one DVD. I thought it would take the files and compress them to fit on one DVD. In the settings there is a box that is checked saying "Fit to one DVD". Wtf? is wrong with this software...so far I am truly disappointed. I also have Nero v.6 and it works great. I'm starting to think I should have upgraded to Nero v.7??? It sucks to pay 100 bucks and get crappy software that doesn't do what it is supposed too. I noiticed that I could use the Video Compilation Copy module but it doesn't appear you get the same fancy menu options as in MyDVD. I am also worried that after 10 years of waiting for the encoding process to finish, the file will not be created as in the original UNSOLVED problem. Any body out there? McFly? :):huh::D:D

More info on exactly what you were doing in your first post would help. It reads as tho you were trying to take an existing dvd disc, or video folder, and convert the content to one (or more?) divx files. Which program in EMC 8 were you using to try to do this with? What were the exact steps you took to get to the processing point?

I was using the Video Compilation DVD Copy program. I was trying to take an unencrypted DVD movie and convert it to a Dvix .avi file so I could then transfer it to my PMP. As you can see from the log file it appears the process completes but then when I go to the output folder there is nothing there. In another attempt, the file was created but it was 0 bytes...zilch.

I want to capture video from a DVD.

 

When I run Roxio Media Import from the Home Center or by itself and push the photo or video selection buttons, the program closes as if it never was opened. The only button that works is audio. Any ideas?

I have exactly the same problem. I did find one workaround, see my post 9 in this thread

 

http://forums.support.roxio.com/index.php?showtopic=1876

 

To eliminate some of the suggestions: not media center alone, as I have a Dell 8300 running Windows XP home SP2 (all updates). I do have Corel Paintshop pro X installed, but no media import app (unless you count WMP10 as it allows ripping of audio CDs). I don't have any external devices such as webcam etc., I only want to import from my DVD drives.

 

Also, I did try a repair from add/remove before updating from build 801 to 805, but that did not fix it, nor did the update.

 

 

and this is what the link says...

So I don't really get it. I tried to do it, so I inserted an mp3 cd to the CD/DVD drive. Then I opened Roxio Meida Import. I clicked on Audio, then on Video and it shut down. So I tried again, I clicked on Audio, then on Photo and it completly froze. It says Not Responding. So I wonder what I am doing wrong. Could somebody explain me this steps a little more.

 

Thanks, Iza

IZA, Please don't confuse things by posting the same problem in two different places. :) If you wanted to post this information (I'm not sure why), you should have done so in your other thread.

Ok, using Disc Copier, Video Compilation function.

 

Just tried this using a small disc image (2 min long) (see images). I selected the clip thru the Add Movies on the Source side. I chose Destination format as Divx, Output: File/Folder, left Options as they were, clicked on Save As, gave it a file name, and it created the output file (test divx file.avi) of 33mb. Were any of the steps you took different? What was the extension of the 0 byte file yours created?

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try using the Media Import program. Is it a stand alone program? What directory of programs is it located in...i.e. Disc Copy, etc. I'm just curious because I don't remember seeing it. I'll check it out tonight. You are right about the .ifo file. It did just show the movies not the individual files. I was confusing it with a program I tried called DVD2AVI. After striking out with EMC8 I tried this other program.
