Many of the programs that you see on television are now copy protected and carry much the same protection as found on the commercial DVD's that you purchase. IN the past, I've even had the recording shut off on my computer while recording something directly from the satellite receiver. I really shouldn't be telling you this, but if you can find yourself a Sima brand `GoDVD' unit and use the composite audio and video connections from the DVR to your computer, you can generally make the thing work. One word of caution though. YOU are responsible for violating copyright laws if you copy or duplicate copywritten material. I'm just giving you this information for educational purposes only. (After all, I'm a technician and it's my job to know this stuff.) If you can�t record anything new: * Make sure your disc is not write-protected. Check your owner�s manual for more information about unlocking your disc. * Make sure you aren�t trying to record copyrighted material. If you are trying to record copyrighted material, �Copy Protected� may be displayed on some DVRs. If you schedule a recording and it doesn�t record: * Double check the time and channel you set to record. Review your manufacturer�s manual for detail instructions for scheduling a record. * Verify the time set on the clock. I know this seems trivial, but if your time is off � it won�t record! My disc isn�t compatible with another DVD player * Is your recording long enough? * Is your disc finalized? Where can I get help with my DVR hardware? If you need help with your DVR hardware, visit your DVR manufacturer�s web site to locate tutorials, FAQs or a support center phone number. Some of the common DVR manufacturer�s include: Note: This is not a complete list of DVR manufacturers. This list only serves as a starting place for your research. If you don�t find your manufacturer on this list, search for yours via a search engine like Yahoo or Google. * TiVo: * Philips: * Pioneer:,,2076_4137,00.html? * Toshiba: * Humax:

What is a CD-ROM disc?

A CD-ROM disc is the disc for a compact disc read-only memory drive to use. The information stored on the disc is "read" by scanning the spinning disc with a laser and looking at the reflected beam to discover the data strings encoded onto the disc. The disc found wide-spread applications in the music recording and later the computer data recording industry. Further developments produced the DVD and also allow both the CD and DVD to be written to and re-written to with relative ease, pleasing both the music lovers and the personal computer (PC) users. The disc itself has a reflective layer sandwiched between two layers of polycarbonate plastic. Particulars on the disc and the methods of encoding (which is the scheme for putting information on the disc) can be found by using the link below to the Wikipedia post on the compact disc. The reading is easy, and there are links to related terms and ideas.

The data written onto compact discs is in a digital format. It may not have originally been written in a digital format, but will be converted to digital in order to write it to a compact disc. Some music/audio compact discs show whether the data was digital or analogue at each stage of: * original recording * mixing * recording to CD by showing a three letter code where A indicates analogue and D digital. ADD would indicate an original analogue recording with a digital mixing and then the digital compact disc recording.
