Save an Update Movie to DVD
If you have an old VHS tape or a DVD you want to make some more but are unsure how to go about it, then it may be time to learn how to update the movie. Although you may be familiar with this process, you might not know exactly how to go about it. There are plenty of software programs that can help you make your video tapes or disks look like new. It’s simple to do and anyone can do it. In fact, the best part about it is that you can even update movie on a compact disc if you have one handy.
One of the first steps to updating your video is to burn the video to a blank disc. Then, remove the old disc from your VCR or DVD player. Place the blank DVD or disc in the DVD burner. Make sure that it is in the correct position before you plug it in.
Depending upon the software program, you can do one of two things: copy the video onto your hard drive or DVD or store the video onto a secondary disk. If you use the DVD burner program, then you will need to locate your video and click on “copy” and” Paste.” After you have done so, the green light on the DVD should flash. Now, if you use your computer, then go to your desktop and find a place on your desktop where you can save the video. Typically, this will be something like the CAB archive.
Next, you need to be able to find your video, because if you have an old VHS tape or DVD with a scratched transfer on it, you will not be able to get your movie on it. You can do this by clicking on “My Computer” and searching for the file. If you do not know where this is located, you can type “My Computer” on the search box and the name of the computer will come up. Once you have located your video, you will then need to go in and restore the original video. For those who have made copies of their movies, this process is very easy and you will just need to access the restore options on your digital camera.
However, if you have a DVD or VHS tape that you want to save as a copy, then you will have to do a bit more work. Simply go to the device where you recorded the movie, double click on the title and it should say “copy completed.” At this point you have to choose “decrypt decrypted data” and you will need to follow the instructions to complete the job.
Saving an update movie is not difficult if you know what to do and how to do it. It is much better to take the time and learn this process than to have to go back and do it over again. The internet is full of tutorials that will show you step by step how to get the job done. For those who are hesitant, there are also many free guides that can show you this process as well. No matter which method you choose, the important thing is that you are able to get your movies onto DVD in one simple step.
