I never play DVD's on any computer so I don't know anything about the differences between the various types of DVD file formats.
I've just copied a non-copyright VHS to my DVD/HDD Recorders HDD and then onto a DVD. That won't play on my Acer laptop. I tried converting the DVD into a VCD and that will play but somewhere along the line I lost the Audio. I used Nero to convert from DVD to VCD format.
What format has my DVD/HDD Recorder used to transfer to DVD? What type of replay device should this play on? Are their any 'free' programs that would do a better job of converting and also act as a DVD Player on my laptop.
The VCD format is useful on my wife's laptop as it won't read DVD write once disks.
No worry about the audio folder there is never anything in it. RM is real media format and that I think is the problem. Do you have any options on your hard disc recorder as to what it burns to the dvd or are you stuck with what you got Sorry cant help regards that type of disc You couls download VLC layer free click here and try that if that dont work and no further help here then try this forum click here
Currently I'm trying to record from the DVD/Recorders HDD to a CD in the VCD format! However I can only record a VCD from SCART etc and not the HDD. So the VHS machines plugged in again and I'm giving that a go. If that works it will be good enough as the VHS isn't wonderful quality.
