best way to burn anime movies/videos

hi im just wondering what kind of software or program do you guys usually use to burn your anime movies.

i used to burn by movies/videos in CD-R in data which can only take about 3-4 videos at a time. is there another way to burn them without wasting alot of cd-r?

any website where i can find out on how to do this. that would be great.

any suggestions and help are welcome. thanks.

I don't know what software is good to suggest, because my computer came with the software. Good luck searching for that..

Maybe you could switch out your CD-r burner for a DVD-RW burner. You could store like, 4GB of data. Plus, since its an RW, you could reuse the space when you decide to get rid of some data you don't intend to keep. I've been using a DVD-RW burner for some time now, there's nothing to complain about as far as my needs go.

I think the software that most of us use is Nero Burning ROM.

I frankly doubt it.

There are many users of Nero Burning ROM, sure, but also widely used (because it's commonly bundled) are Roxio Easy CD Creator and NTI CD-Maker. Some people like Alcohol 120% for some reason. Some, due to sheer laziness, use the Windows XP cd-burning functionality. Then there are the hordes using cdrecord+mkisofs or cdrdao.

Make no assumptions. I doubt even a quarter of the people here use Nero, simply because of the choices out there.

Nero Burning ROM comes bundled too, just like Roxio Easy CD Creator.

I think we'll just have to wait for more replies, that's all.

I've used Nero and I used to burn my early anime onto CD-Rs until I got a new computer and now started burning them onto DVD-Rs. Way more convenient (although sometimes it only fits 25 our of 26 episodes per disc )


I'm trying to get more into Alcohol 120%, since I've heard some good things about it.

I use nero most of the time, but you can use clone cd or any other burning software. I don't think there is much difference between the most popular burning softs. well with xp you don't even need a burning soft, xp has it's own one, but I don't use it much.

Another Nero user here. Nero 6 Ultra is probably one of the most complete and comprehensive burning application suites out there. I think that it is well worth the purchase price, even if something else came with your burner. (Roxio's Easy Media Creator is another safe bet, but I still like Nero better.)

And keep your eyes open for a good deal on a reputable DVD+/-R burner. You can fit over six times the data on one DVD disc compared to a CD-R, so it really helps to keep things organized.

I use mainly Nero for the past few years and burn the files directly to CD or DVD depending on if it's long series and watch them on my Liteon LVD-2002, which can read and decode divx and xvid files.

There's a new model out that has network connection that can browse the network and watch your video files. This would be an excellent player if you have a NAS server or somethign to the like.

nero 6 and nerovision express 2 are the best program for ISO compliations and for encoding and transcoding video files as well as dvd authoring, the best software for direct disc to disc copying and image creating with emulation is alchole 120%

Yeah...Nero seems to be the leader in it, but napalm will work.

I use K3B. It's my favorite Linux burning software. Interface is much like Roxio, but more features than the free version of Roxio that often comes with cd-r drives or computers.

I use a DVD+RW on my laptop. Do NOT use nero and if you already are, for god's sake do not uninstall it unless you are reformatting the drive. Nero has the sloppiest uninstaller ever. Four files stayed in my drive as well as a few registery keys which realy messed up my chances of burning anything. Im not sure if its aggressive marketing or downright laziness by nero. Anyways, I had to reformat the laptop to get rid of it. Now I just use Roxi's one (they're both as bad)

-If you got a cd burner(cd-r/cd-rw)drive then make SVCD's and use Nero Express to do so.

-If you got a dvd burner(dvd-r/dvd-rw) then make DVD's and use Roxio to do so.

The cheaper choice is to make SVCD's, but DVD's have better quality and it's faster.

I recommend burning them to CDs or DVDs. Burning your anime to floppy disks is very time-consuming and uses a lot of media, and it's hard to watch them once you're done because you have to switch floppies every few seconds.

haha. how do you "burn" to floppy disks? We talking about the 1.44mb ones here? very funny ashibaka.

while we're at it, we should try putting anime on datacassettes, anyone remember those?

If you cannot play your videos in your laptop but can play them in your desktop PC then the problem here is that your laptop doesn't have the proper codecs to play the videos.

I suggest you to download one of these two codecs (Don't install them both on the same pc)

http://www.k-litecodecpack.com/

Elisoft's Codec pack
If you understand a little bit of spanish I STRONGLY suggest you to download the elisoft codec packs due to the fact that these codecs are the most stable and compatible ones that I have ever seen. You won't have any more problems after installing one of these two codecs, but if you can understand spanish a little bit go for the elisoft's.

I hope that you won't have any more problems after this.

Good luck.

there is no way to stuff more data onto one CD-r. overburning is a way... ... ... but that is dangerous...

invest in a DVD-Rburner

(note: dvd RW isnt really worth it IMO)
