Hello

I guess the title explains the idea. At the time i thought just making a DVD from my Flip camera-MP 4 - to DVD was an accomplishment. 

However, I realize since that i should have made the raw files, since gone, to an extension or format to play via the DVD player and view on TV.

A friend just made some VHS files so it can be viewed this way and this gave me the idea.

Can I actually use a made DVD from Ashampoo into a DVD that I can use in the DVD player and be able to watch on TV.

I was reading about Avavi but it was not clear to me.

 

I do not know what format I am supposed to convert to or what Ashampoo used to create the DVDs.

 

Also, most of my 12 DVDs have only a little bit on them and I would like to put more on fewer dvds.

 

I am willing to figure this out with a little help and to do the work necessary, if you will help.

 

Thank you

Peter

Yes it can be done easily (usually anyway), but there may always be that 1 which won't play nice, just rip your DVD, convert it to the format you need, then burn it to a fresh disk, needless to say if it's your 1st venture it will seem overwhelming, but with the right tool it's just a matter of making a few right clicks.

 

Get Free Studio and install it, it has many tools and should do what you need easily, just click on the logical buttons for what you want, and it will guide you through offering all related options from what you have selected, down to the point you get a program launched and ready to do what you need, the Green button is for DVD & Video, then the 1st option is a converter, just check all the settings are right for your country (NTSC, as opposed to PAL which is UK, whenever your use something with such an option), or try the 2 Orange buttons instead, see how you go.

Important Note; I hate any page that pushes stuff at you, and unfortunately this site now seems to do it as well, so if needed use the Esc (escape) button to clear the pop up window that obscures the page, and ignore anything else that comes up.

 

But  the software you used to make your disks originally are supposed to be able to do what you want, Here is a guide on the subject which may help with that if you want to stick with what you know.

 

But generally speaking the format you need to use can be one of a few, depending on the quality you want at times (I'm guessing here), but the restricting factor is the player it goes in, players are usually capable of reading several formats, but this varies, often a lot and usually reflected in the price of the player, but generally speaking I believe the MPEG2 format is pretty much playable by anything as best I could see, but others may know better, hope this helps anyway.

You gave me valuable information.

I have a player made by Sony in 2003 which may be a problem.  However, a friend jut just converted vhs to dvd and it works with this old player.

Are the directions for Ashampoo for making dvd from raw files or for changing the format of an existing dvd as I wish to do? I ask as I have read the instructions for Ashampoo over the years and did not see what I need. 

ISO, CUE/BIN,ASHDISC are the extensions Ashampoo makes when you create a disc image from a project as I did to make these dvds which work on the pc only. It states that before you begin but I never thought to play them on TV as I now do.

I will download Free Studio and give it a go. The goal being to change my dvd which only plays on pc to be able to create one from the dvd to play on TV if the player cooperates.

Thanks

Peter

I have never used that software, so I can only go on what I find, but if you scroll down that page just under the 2nd image is a heading "Burn DVDs to show on DVD player." which I am hoping you will be able to figure out as you have a working knowledge of the software, hope it helps.

Does DVD Shrink read as though it could take a dvd and send it to the hard drive where DVD could be created for the TV?

I honestly don't know, I have never used it, but I have seen a lot of people saying to use it for various uses, but I'm pretty sure the software I linked above will do it easily, sorry I can't offer more on the program you mention, I just know it's name, nothing more.
