Are there any good software out there that will let me create a DVD type disc with all my mp4 video camera footage?

As I have one of these drives. They are good and I paid £100 for mine.

I wonder if these also come with software for burning discs and playing Blu-ray films?
The lambda-tek seems to be OEM.

Haven't got this drive but a Pioneer blue-ray writer writes at 4x I ant believe how quick you can write 25gb for under 15 minutes using imgburn.

Dont suppose BR media has come down in price?

I'm in the need for a replacement DVD Writer. Not sure of I should grab a BD burner instead, can't really think what I'd use it for. I normally just FTP stuff or store on a HDD.

Where can I get low priced 25GB & 50GB media?
#14
A software developer friend of mine keeps reminding me that It's only a matter of time until PC software titles start to appear on Blu-Ray instead of dual layer DVD's.
#15
I mentioned this earlier today too

Very tempted but there must be a new model due very soon and that price point would be interesting to know.

I can download 25GB in a little over 4hrs.

Hmmmmm, my few pennies.

They're slowly coming down in price so yes, hot, but still way too much for me verses the benefit I might get.
I really can't think of a reason to buy this kind of thing yet (and maybe not ever).
When all drives just are CD/DVD/Blu-ray and at the sort of prices close to what we pay now maybe I'll go for it but I just don't see myself bothering to make burned Blu-rays anyways.

From what I can see the software is still evolving, as it's buggy and annoyingly lacking in user-friendlyness.
There's also no guarantee anything will definitely work with your standalone either, too much trial and error.

As K1ller Hrnet says I am now on an 'up to 20mb connection (real speed 18.5mb down) and the need for this (seeing as I have an HTPC too) is hard to see with hard drive prices so low for such huge sizes.

People can say all they like about hard drive reliability but I've never had one fail in 8yrs, I only know of 1 person who has (my brother who has had one Samsung HDD go in that time - and even the ancient 8yr old Seagate 160gb drive is working just fine in my 1st Time Powerstation PC that I gave to my nephew).

Still to be convinced, but heat added for the price.

data far easier to move update etc on hard drive

at same time if theres a way of copying blueray films easily then i guess this is good news and will be of use to some

You are a very lucky man.

I've had numerous HDs die on me. When I buy a hard disk, I but it on the understanding that at some stage I shall be RMAing it.

This is the reason why I would never buy a Samsung HD from Scan, as their HDs are grey imports and do not permit direct RMA to Samsung.

With regards to cost of BluRay: I agree with you 100%.

Why waste time burning to expensive BluRay, when you can just save to an elcheapo hard disk. 2TB hard disks can now be had for around £65, so its a no-brainer. Important work should be regularly backed up, which I do by saving to the HD of my other PC. The likelihood of HDs of both hard disks dying at the same time, is extremely remote (though not impossible).

Absolutely.....and even more so nowadays with high def internet TV/720p/1080p YouTube and the more common hard drive recognition & the ablity to play high def .mkv's on large flat panel HD TVs...and ironically even Blu-ray standalones
(although I accept it's not - yet - as unbiquitous & issue-free as Xvid/Divx playback now is in most DVD players, but it is coming) .

Good advise, and I completely agree about the chances of a back-up hard drive choosing to die at the same time as your regular one.

It's the fire or theft aspect that worries me rather than two drives giving up the ghost at exactly the same time. Only had a problem once before caused by a powercut while backing up a lot of data.

If there is a fire, data back up will be the last of my worries.

Having a burnt out home, which is unlivable and soaking wet after the fire brigade have hosed it down is far more of a problem for me, than some lost data. :p

Theft would be a problem...I admit.

Oh and both my PCs run of separate UPS's, which means that even during power cuts/irregularities, my PCs are able to shut down without any problem.

That's what insurance is for but there isn't a lot they could do to retrieve the pictures of my kids growing up. :p

I keep a backup hard drive at work and make sure it is only a month or two out of date. I could live with losing a couple of months worth of data/pictures.

Absolutely

But Never ever rely on HDD or even on Raid. BR or DVD backups are essential for those important bits and bytes.

@tyson25

As long as you have a spare sata data port on your motherboard and spare sata power cable on your power supply you can run one. They won't add greatly to your psu total power load, what your friend may have been commenting on is whether you have a DHCP compliant graphics card and monitor as to play blu-ray movies in HD resolutions you needed (it may have changed) the appropriate certification from SONY, even if your monitor & GPU supported the resolution you still needed new equipment to run in any higher than standard definition.

For example, my graphics card 880gt is hdcp compliant (no hdmi port so would have to convert from dvi to hdmi, not a problem if playing on a pc but if playing through a tv you would also need an audio feed cable as this gpu does not have an on board audio chip for the purpose) but my monitor is not as it's not widescreen (technically can play 720 resolution but has no certification so nvidia control panel rejects it for the purpose). There's probably also operating system minimum requirements too but I'm assuming you're running an xp or later machine.

No you must be very unlucky. Hard drive failure rates for self failure are tiny. If your getting regular failures then its likely to be a problem caused by your setup (power issues/temp issues) and not the drive.
#36
Failure rate depends on a number of variables but I personally send at least 10 new Samsung HDD's back under warranty EVERY WEEK due to them developing problems within the first month of usage. But they still remain the cheapest bulk HDD avaialble which is why they are still being purchased. I don't have this scale of problem with HDD's made by Western Digital for example but they are nearly double the price.

That's what I find so disappointing in all of this, around Nero 6 they were simply the best burning software out there, what happened to them?

I have to also mention my 1 almost failure (due to the notorious Seagate software problem), they paid for everything, took the drive & installed new working firmware & everything was on it as it should have been.
I leant my lesson I have all the 'my documents' stuff (pics especially) on 3 different hard drives now - and a cloned copy of the OS for both my PCs C drives tucked away (and powered up every few months) in case of future trouble.
Still incredibly cheap tho.

Double the price, not nearly half the trouble ;)

btw: I'm rocking 4 Seagate drives in my PC. 2x500GB (RAID0 - crazy I know) & 2x1.5TB
Gonna have to replace those 500GB drives with some 2TB drives in the near future :)

Also have: Samsung 640GB & Seagate 500GB (ext) for PS3, WD 320GB for XBOX 360 & WD 320GB for Jtag XBOX 360 :p

Everyone has their own experiences with drives, for my money I wouldn't touch toshiba drives as I saw lots of them fail but "statistics mean nothing to the individual". I currently use a samsung f3 500gb as it was the fastest drive at the time excepting ssd (which were prohibitively expensive). I agree that blu-ray is too expensive but the more likely future of data storage is cloud computing and I'm not convinced we're going to see blu-ray drives dominate.
