I have been searching for months and can't find what I'm looking for so this tells me I may not know what the heck I'm actually looking for. So, I thought I would post here.
I have windows media center. I record LOST and now I want to edit out the commercials and put it on a dvd that I will be able to use in my dvd player in the living room to watch on TV. Today I used media center to put it on a DVD+RW and out of curoisty I put it in my dvd player and it actually played on the TV. I was like soooo happy about this until I fast forwarded to the end and found it did not record everything. So back to the computer, I erased what was on the disk and tried again and this time I paid attention and after over an hour and only 29% burned an error message popped up. I decided, what the hay let's see if I can edit what I have on the disk. (I already tried many times to bring up the dvr-ms Lost file on my computer with no luck) Well, I am still stuck!
Here is what I am working with: Windows XP Media Center 2005; 250 GB hard drive; 1 GB RAM; 16xDVD ROM plus 16XDVD +/RW double layer drives; Roxio My DVD LE; Record Now Audio; Record Now Copy and Record Now Data came with the Dell system. I then installed Roxio Easy Media Creator 7. No matter which one I use when I go to the file where my dvr ms recorded files are they do not come up.
So, I'm begging for What am I doing WRONG? Will the programs I have do what I want? Where can I find DETAILED information on how to do what I want to do? Dang I long for the days when you bought a computer and it came with every single book you needed so you had something in your hands to go by. Also, can someone tell me what kind of dvd I should use for putting tv programs to? I would like to put more then one show on a disk. (I know that I have to buy the double layer dvd's)
Thank you for any and all help. I truly appreciate all help.
