You cannot edit the file on the disc. You can only edit the file on your computer and then re-burn it to the disc.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this drive. It is likely that the issue lies, not with the drive, but with the software on the computer. This drive operates according to the driver and the burning software. It is recommended to check the settings in the application that sent the data to the drive, and check for the configuration on storing the file to the disc. For additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Answer: 
To watch a movie taken with your camcorder that you have burned to a DVD it needs to have an extension .MPEG or .MPG. These are types of video codecs. You may have to transcode your file if it is an .AVI file. Check the extension on your camcorder file. Google transcode for instructions. Hope this helps you.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this computer drive. It is likely that what is remaining would be to finalize the recording. This is a step of the recording software. Check to ensure that the recording process, for these audio CDs, is complete before attempting to use them in other locations.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The GE24LU20 does not come with a Mac disk because Mac would have this software and drivers. This unit is plug and play via a compatible USB connection. If you are still having problems, please contact one of our product specialists at 1-800-243-0000.
