Unhappy DVD Rom drive is not recognized :(


Dear Friends,

I have been using Linux Mint v.7 for more than a month, and I don't want to go back to xind@x$ anymore. However, sometimes I am having this problem. In fact, I have this very same problem with Ubuntu, Xandros, Mandriva, Mandrzke, Suse as well. I am using wine now and it helps for installing and running a lot.

Back to my problem: I have converted my avi movie to DVD by using ConvertXToDvd software. When the program asked me to insert an blank DVD disk, I did so. The "BURN" button never got highlightened, in other words the software (Also Linux Mint OS-via this software) didn't recognize my blank DVD disk and/or DVD Rom Drive.

I searched internet and came accross with this AVS converter, but it never even started running after I finished the installation.

I will appreciate your valuable helps. Very best regards . . .

well that's not a linux problem, it's wine problem. i tested ConvertXtoDVD before and sometimes it does not recognize the Writer. wind appdb would have better info about the problems related to CovertXtoDVD under wine.

well, it's been while since i last used ConvertXtoDVD, and it was for testing only.

here's short how-to;
use transcode (or ffmpeg, ffmpeg is pretty much used everywhere) to convert the video to DVD mpeg 2 (it's somehow different). ffmpeg has nice documentation about converting (transcode, too).

after getting new converted VOB files with mpeg2 encoding. use something like try one DVD authoring programs from the how-to i linked, choose as you wish.

then write them

Dear Ozanbaba,

Thank you very much 4 your reply again. It is also very helpful.

Good news: I solved the problem: I converted the avi into DVD format with the help of Devede. The avi format seems to be .iso format. Then, by using K3b Linux DVD editing program I burned/recorded the .iso file to blank DVD as if I am recording an .iso file by clicking on the "Burn DVD ISO Image" icon on K3b. That's it! You are done.

Yes, it seems like you are converting a divx file into iso format, then burning it as iso file in iso format but at the end it works.

Thanks a lot for your time my friend, have a wonderful day, best regards from Canada . . .

Serdal

To The Editor/Moderator: I wonder if it is all right to write my e-mail address to Ozanbaba. Thanks . . .

let me clear the misconceptions here. that iso is dvd image, it's used for creatirng dvd or cd complucations. dvds use mpeg 2 in VOB container. divx, xvid are encoder/decoder for mpag 4 part 2.

Dear Ozanbaba,

I see now better. I never ever could think of an ISO format file to be the DVD file. Ok, now I know.

This is my e-mail address: vkendirli[at]yahoo[.]com Remove [ ] brackets and you may send me e-mails, if you would like.

Once again, thank you very much for your helps my friend . . .

serdal, you shouldn't really be asking people to email you as that will take the discussion away from the forums. This is bad because the forums are a place where people should be able to find answers to their questions - someone may have the same (or a similar) problem as you, so by leaving stuff here, it can be beneficial.
