How To Burn Dvd From Dvd Ram Disc


Chris Nicola
 Share

Question

I am trying to use "Video Copy and Convert" to burn DVD movies from a DVD Ram disc. Unfortunately I can't import the movies directly from the RAM disc. I copied all the files to my computer and browse to the folder in Video Copy and convert and the programe can see all the movies and even play then when I click the preview icon. However the problem is when I click on the movies they cannot be selected with my mouse. With nothing selected I can't click OK to proceed.I am running EMC 10 on Windows 7 and there is no problem making DVD's from non Ram discs.

 

Your advice would be appreciated.

 

Kind Regards

The earliest version to work with W7 was Creator 2010

Thanks for your reply. I have made a little progress but still no success. Instead of clicking on DVD Video Copy I tried the video compilation button and there I could click and select the movies. However it still fails to burn to a blank DVD -R or even to a disc image. I would be interested to know if anyone has found a work around for burning movies from RAM discs.

 

Kind Regards

PS I greatly appreciate the time other members spend offering help sharing their knowledge on the forum. I apologise if I have let any previous threads hang. However, this is the first time I have made a post with the above subject.

Odgens thanks for mentioning this. The interesting thing is that everything else I have used on EM seems to work with Windows 7. I may well decide to upgrade in the future. I believe RAM discs were tempramental in EM 10 even with XP. Do you know if the latest suite can handle RAM discs?

 

Kind Regards

Look at the DVD structure of the DVD Ram Disc, what format is it?

 

What recorder name and model number burned the movie to the DVD Ram disc?

 

There is no escape from ogdens posted fact!

Easy Media Creator 10 on Windows 7 is not compatible...

Why don't you simply copy the video from the RAM disc to your hard drive using Windows Explorer and then bring the video into the Roxio program.

Thanks cdanteek and myguggi. The video Ram was made from a Panasonic EMR-D85H and the format seems to be in the MEI_UDF file system format. It was recorded in low quality EP mode. I am not sure what kind of video encoding it is but EMC 10 can play it when I press the preview button so I suppose it might be some kind of mpeg. I have tried coping the files to my HD and EMC can select the files in video copy and convert but when I select burn to -R DVD or to image file the process fails. I suppose I could reinstall EMC 10 in a virtual XP machine and it might work there. When I have previously tried to use Creator classic, sound editor and DVD copy and convert they all seem to work fine on Windows 7. Its just this Ram disc issue that has appeared. As has been mentioned maybe just an unavoidable Windows 7 compatiblity issue. I am not up to giving up just yet and will see if there are any work arounds. Any further suggestions will be appreciated.

 

Kind Regards

Have you tried Videowave or myDVD to convert the video?

EMC 10 will not work in a virtual machine either - a VM doesn't have access to the native hardware and has to work through an emulation layer.

 

If you want to use EMC 10, then you are going to have to use an earlier OS - partition your drive and dual boot. Either that or upgrade to Creator 2010/2011

Myguggi, thanks again for this suggestion. I believe this method would have worked. However, I suspect it would have been time consuming as I had many movies to import and save separately. In the end I decided I would upgrade to EMC 2011 and benefit from the latest features.

 

I wish to thank everyone who replied to this thread. This is a great group.

 

Kind Regards

 

Chris
