MacBook Pro :: Burning Media Files To A CD?

Mar 6, 2012

I have a bunch of media files (videos) that I want to store onto a CD-RW so I'm not wasting any unnecessary HD space on my Mac. However, when I attempted to do so it created a seemingly permanent file directly on my desktop with those videos that I cannot delete without compromising my ability to ever view those files again.  In so doing, I seem to be unintentionally duplicating media files and decreasing the space on my HD as a result. How might I save video files to a simple CD without having to have a copy on my system to be able to view them?  The file in question has the "burn" icon on its cover.  You see, just to test myself, I tried to delete it in my trash can, and it wouldn't allow me ti view those videos and movies without first re-instating that duplicate file.  The filre originated as a CD until the burning phase was completed.

OS X :: CD/DVD Burning Giving Message The Media Is Unreadable

Nov 26, 2009

Ok...I'm on an IMac (2007 White, 24"). Since SL was installed (unsure if that when it started) I cannot burn cd or dvd. Gives me errors, saying the media is unreadable. Ok, I says to myself, drive is toast. Tonight I boot into Windoze and decide to give it a shot. Works flawlessly! Went back to OSX and still doesn't work.
In summary: burns under XP, not OSX.

OS X :: Burning Music Files To Disc?

May 7, 2009

I have a new macbook with the latest OS, I'm burning my itunes music folder to a disc. I notice that the folder burned to the disc is slightly larger (in bytes) than the original folder in itunes. It's still the same 4.18GB size, but if you notice the bytes on the burned dvd compared to that on the original itunes folder, the dvd bytes are higher. I even tried burning a second one, after restarting the computer, and the bytes match the original dvd I burned. Why the discrepancy between the original folder size in bytes on my computer and then one I burned onto a disc?

Software :: Burning Individual Files To A DVD?

Dec 7, 2009

I've downloaded a Linux Distro known as a Live DVD in ISO format. I want to burn this to a DVD for future use but would like to change what is in the ISO before burning. There are several files that I would like included so I won't have to have a second CD/DVD later.

DiskImageMounter does a great job of opening the ISO but it is readonly. If I copy the files to a directory, make my changes and then burn the DVD, the disk isn't bootable. And I am at a loss about how to continue. Can I burn individual files to a DVD and specify that the DVD will be bootable? Is there a software tool that will take the individual files and folders, and make a new ISO file that would be bootable?

I guess you can see where I am going. When I google for it, I find results for creating a backup of the Leopard install DVD.

OS X :: Video Files On The Disc Are Unplayable After Burning?

Apr 30, 2009

I recently burned a couple of .avi and .mpg video files to a dual-layer DVD+R as a data disc (DVD-ROM) using the program "Burn" which is, in essence, a nicer front-end to Mac OS X's burning capabilities.

However, after burning, the video files on the disc are now unplayable. It seems like they are corrupt.

Am I doing something wrong? Do dual-layer discs need special settings to make it work as data discs?

IMac :: Burning Home Video Clips - Files With Different Format

Jun 7, 2010

I am clearing out my old IMac 10.4 & trying to make sure I am not losing precious memories but I cant seem to find certain home movies without hitting a problem. Some files end in .MOD or .MOI & comes up as file could not be opened & says its "not a movie file". I cannot see the same titles elsewhere but maybe in different formats which would play, I did notice the first time I uploaded them from my old JVC hard disc camcorder, that a named clip would appear it 2/3 different formats but since that was my first time dealing with movie files, I didn't understand it. Now I cannot see where the other different formats are. I have searched but they are all that will come up. There is even one or two which are .DV but again says could not be opened but this time also says "the end of the file was reached".

OS X :: How To Download Media Files From My School

Feb 22, 2009

I'm in medical school and I can watch videos of my lectures online when I am on campus ONLY (I suppose it only allows certain IPs on the site.) This proves to be very frustrating because I have to commute an hour to campus just to watch the videos. I was wondering if there was a way to just simply go to campus and download the videos. (FYI I'm not sure if this is helpful but I have I just got the brand new macbook, I have quicktime pro but I could only get the video (no audio). to get audio I had to download windows media player. I had flip4mac and that would only give me video only as well, no audio. I've been told that only WMP will work by multiple people. I have XP under bootcamp if that is at all helpful. But once again I would just like to simply download the videos so that I no longer have to come to campus to get them.

OS X :: Drag Files Into Media Player From My Mac Computer

Jul 11, 2009

Just got a Sumvision Cyclone Media Player and connected to my mac book pro. It found the drive called as "New Volume". Open the folder and had different folders inside: Movies, Music, Pictures, System Volume Information. If I get into the folders as for example "Movies" files I cannot drag any files to the folders since a message comes for example:

The item "XXXXX.avi" could not be moved because "New Volume" cannot be modified. What should I do? Is that because I am using a Mac computer? And if so do I need to erase and reformat the drive or what? Desperate here.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.1.2 - Media Management -> Render Files

Aug 20, 2014

Running FCP X 10.1.2 ... I wanted to verify a few things with the community about media mgmt that the white paper really doesn't explain to well. My archiving procedure is as follows: 

I import media to an Event to offload footage from camera/card. I then close FCP X, open the finder and open the library and "show package contents" and then pick the original media folder. I then copy that folder to another offsite drive I have dated by year -> folder. 

Example: 2014 - Footage from Colorado.  (I do this to always store my original media outside any project I'm working on for future reference. This is ok, correct? Is there a better way?) 

Second, I learned the other day that if I want to archive/backup libraries or even clean up the library,it is good practice to remove all rendered/transcoded media files. It is pretty simple from the "file" menu to do this. Question, if I just removed the rendered media, how long does it take again before FCP X background tasks starts working / rendering media again? Do I stop this somehow so I have time to backup the library? I thought this process was automated after a few seconds?

Final Cut Pro X :: Creating / Using Proxy Media Files

Aug 29, 2014

I just made the transition to FCPX and I've imported video to a number of Libraries. (I really have to fight hard not to call them Projects)

As I didn't completely understanding all of the import settings, I made Optimized video along with the Original media.  Ok, no big deal.  The files take up a bit of space, and because of the nature of the project (lots of talking head interviews) not sure I really need Optimized video, but wasn't too concerned.  I'll know for next time that I don't want to check that box, unless I really need the Optimized video. 

My question is -

If I wanted to make a copy of my media files to a portable HD, work with these files off site with the same Library that is on my Macbook Pro, make logging notes, selects, maybe even creating a Project or two, and then return  to my office where I would re-connect the original media files located on the office-bound hard drives, what do I need to do to ensure that this will work properly?    

Secondarily, would it now make sense to create the Proxy files to use for this purpose?  Is this not what these files are normally used for?  Smaller, and more easily taken on the road and edited, and then the Library will re-connect everything to the original files once re-connected to the drives that contain the original media?

OS X :: Itunes Library On HD & TC - Time Capsule Media Files

Oct 21, 2010

I've been trying vigorously to connect my itunes library with my Time Capsule Media files.So that I can keep the music I acually listen to on my Macbrook Pro's harddrive but have the rest of my music stored onto my time capsule and listen to when I am at home.What I thought to do was put the music i listen to in the itunes library folder on the harddrive and then change the media location to the TC media file folder.Turns out my idea was wrong.. any others care to elaborate on this issue? I'm pretty much confused with this and i haven't been able to find it on the forums anywhere

OS X :: Adding Files To ITunes...Does It Copy The Media? Or Just The Location?

May 22, 2010

I am still pretty new to Mac and OSX and i had a question about itunes.

Ok, So if i add say 1 album and 1 Movie. Lets say the the album is in My Music folder and the Movie is in My Movies folder.

Now if i go to add to library in iTunes and add them then i am done. If i go and delete the 2 files from the folders i notice that the album and movie is still in itunes and still playable? How is that if i deleted them from the folders on my Mac?

Does iTunes actually COPY the movie and music i add to its own folder? so that way if i do delete it from my mac, its still in a iTunes folder somewhere?

Like with windows, WMP copies the location of that media, So if i add a album and later delete it from my PC and go and try to play it in WMP, it will say NOT FOUND or just no longer show it.

Reason i ask this is because i do not want to have double of everything on my HD and take up more space then i should...
