8. When I put in a dvd/rw disc which is recognized as an r/w dvd disc in the d drive, when I go to burn it on the program, it says "Media not
writable, or no media. Please insert a writable media". What is this problem?
Answer
I have attempted to download the software many times, but each time the downloaded file is bigger than the file size listed on the web site.
What can I do?
This problem seems to occur only when using a download manager with specific network conditions. If at all possible, you will have better results by
downloading the software normally through your browser.

When I put in a dvd/rw disc which is recognized as an r/w dvd disc in the d drive, when I go to burn it on the program, it says "Media not

Page 43
There are two reasons to cause this problem. One is you did not connect the DVD Recorder to computer correctly. You can go to "My Computer" to check if you
can find "DVD-RAM Drive" The other one is because the DVD disc you try to burn has be written. Sometimes the DVD disc did not record file but it recorded
data, so the disc cannot be write again though it is said "Empty" Please empty (erase) you DVD RW first, or use a new disc and then try it again. You have to
make sure both hardware and DVD disc workable.

Glossary
AAC
Also called MPEG-4 AAC, this audio codec is the continuation of the MP3 codec created by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Due to advances in the technology, AAC files
encoded at a 96 kbps bit rate sound slightly better than MP3s encoded at 128 kbps.
AVI
AVI is acronym of "Audio Video Interleave", the original Microsoft file format for Microsoft's Video for Windows standard. It is an audio video standard designed
by Microsoft and is apparently proprietary and Microsoft Windows specific. It is a format developed for storing video and audio information. Files in this format
have an .AVI extension. However, Video for Windows does not require any special hardware, making it the lowest common denominator for multimedia
applications.
Video Compact Disc (VCD) is a special version of a CD-ROM that uses the MPEG-1 format. The quality of the exported movie is almost the same, but usually
better than VHS tape-based movies. A VCD can be played back on a CD-ROM drive, VCD player, and even on a DVD player.
Bit rate
Bit rate very often used when speaking of video or audio quality and file size -- defines how much physical space one second of audio or video takes in bits
(note: not in bytes). The higher the bit rate, the more times per second the original sound is sampled, thus yielding a more faithful reproduction and better
sound. When choosing an MP3, weigh the advantage of a higher bit rate against the size of the file. Generally speaking, a bit rate of 128 kbps or higher will
provide satisfactory sound quality.
ASF
Advanced Streaming Format (formerly Active Streaming Format). A Microsoft file and data stream format for multimedia data including audio, video, still
images, and other data types. Also referred to as Windows Media format.
Codec
An abbreviation for compressor/decompressor. Software or hardware used to compress and decompress digital media.
CD
Page 45
Compact Disc-Read Only Memory: a standard for compact disc to be used as a digital memory medium for personal computers. The 4.75in laser-encoded optical
memory storage medium can hold about 650MB of data, sound, and limited stills and motion video. A CD-ROM player will typically play CD-DA discs, but a CDDA player will not play CD-ROMs
DVD
DVD stands for Digital Video Disc. A standard VCD records video data in MPEG-1 format. On the other hand, a standard DVD records video data in MPEG-2
format. A DVD player or a computer equipped with a DVD drive is required to play DVDs. Almost all DVD players also play VCDs.
A DVD is a very high-density optical storage medium. It is able to hold significantly more data as compared to VCDs. A typical 2½-hour movie requires two
VCDs. The same movie requires only one DVD. Moreover, the recorded movie itself has twice as better quality and resolution as compared to VCDs. This is
because a DVD movie records video data in the MPEG-2 format.
DVDs are fast gaining popularity with its high-quality videos and high-storage capability. However, DVD recording medium, DVD players and DVD drives are still
relatively expensive.
WMV
Windows Media Video (WMV) is a generic name for the set of proprietary streaming video technologies developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Windows Media
framework.
Frame rate
The number of video frames displayed per second. Higher frame rates generally produce smoother movement in the picture.
MPEG
MPEG stands for 'Moving Pictures Experts Groups'. It is a group working under the directives of the International Standards Organization (ISO) and the
International Electro-Technical Commission (IEC). MPEG is a committee of experts from the audio, video and computer industries developing an evolving series
of standards for compression of moving images.
MPEG-1 defines a framework for encoding moving video and audio, significantly reducing the amount of storage with minimal perceived difference (difference
that humans can detect) in quality. MPEG-1 video compression method tries to use previous frame's information in order to reduce the amount of information
the current frame requires. In addition, the audio encoding uses something called psychoacoustics - compression removes the high and low frequencies a
normal human ear cannot hear.
MPEG-2 is not a successor to MPEG-1, but an addition instead - both of these formats have their own purposes. MPEG-1 is a relatively low-resolution format
currently used in VCD and the World Wide Web for short animated files. The MPEG-2 is a much higher resolution format developed for digitalPage
television
46 and used
in DVD.
MPEG-4 unlike MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, MPEG-4 itself isn't just one unified encoding mechanism, but rather a group name for several flavors of video and audio
encoding methods that share certain same characteristics. These "flavors" are often referred either as "profiles" or "layers" in MPEG-4 compression scheme and
each new profile should be backwards compliant to the older, "lower" versions of MPEG-4 in terms of playback capability.
Sample Rate
The speed at which audio samples are recorded and played back. This is analogous to video and film frame rates. Higher sample rates give higher audio quality
at the expense of larger audio file size. Lower sample rates save disk space but result in poorer audio quality. Typically, 8 kHz is fine for human voice recording.
Audio CDs are recorded at 44.1 kHz, and audio DATs are recorded at 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz.
MOV
MOV is a file extension found on the World Wide Web that denotes a movie or video file in QuickTime format. To play the movie after you download the file, your
computer must support the QuickTime format.
QuickTime
QuickTime is a file extension designed for compressed videos or movies (like animations).
VCD
VCD stands for Video CD. Most of the stand-alone DVD players and VCD players can play VCD. VCD is still the most compatible format for video distribution.
Anybody with a DVD player, VCD player or computers with CD-ROM drive (standard configuration) is able to play VCD. The video quality is better than most
other formats and is sufficient for average home viewing. A VCD recording medium is very cheap and most widely available. Due to small sizes, VCD videos are
also well suited for distribution.
SVCD
SVCD stands for Super Video CD. SVCD is a successor to Video CD. SVCD contains MPEG-2 video stream and MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 audio stream recorded on a
normal VCD recording medium. Most of the DVD players can play SVCD discs.
An SVCD video quality is much better than VCDs and virtually the same as DVDs. Since SVCD is still restricted to 650Megs of data, the amount of discs required
for a standard 2½-hour movie is more than double as compared to VCDs
Video

Sent from
source, video has a certain amount of information in it that makes up the video picture. However, when that signal travels through a sending device it can also
pick up additional information from other electro-magnetic sources. This is what is called interference or static (for those of you who use bunny-ear antennas on
your TV, you know what I mean). What makes the difference between Analog and DV video is the way the video signal is interpreted on the sending and
receiving ends of all that electro-magnetic communication.
VIDEO_TS folder
It is a format of DVD folder, it include the ifo, vob and bup format file. Users can setup this VIDEO_TS folder by using DVD Creator, and the folder must be
named as "VIDEO_TS", then it can be played in DVD player.
Digital Video Formats
Digital video formats are always a trade-off between size and quality. Maximum quality is only achieved by sampling at a high rate and not compressing the
data. Doing this with broadcast-quality video requires about 20 MB/sec of digital data (or 1.2 GB/min). For most purposes this is an impractical amount of data,
so various compression schemes are used to reduce the amount of data without noticeably reducing quality.
Video Formats
Many of us have heard of DVDs before -- but what are mini DVD, VCD, or SVCD? The reason that you may want to consider these other formats is because the
costs of DVD burning and the space required over PC.
These alternative formats provide a good economical solution for distributing your movies on CD-R/RW discs that can be played on computers and many home
stand-alone DVD players. Video Convert Master provides a solution to cut down the stored space, and a method of burning 2 or more different videos into one
disc.
For a complete guide on the advantages, required settings and playback options of each format, please refer to the following questions.
