There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default utterly confused and disappointed

I downloaded Nero 7....and yes, I've searched the other threads but I feel so inept as I don't understand what to do! I have considered going out and buying a computer that has a DVD writer on it with lots more space....seems an expensive option BUT I've spent hours trying to figure this out and still am watching my programs having to sit in front of my computer!

I really appreciate everyone who has tried....

This is not really a problem as much as some choices that you have to make

I'm sorry but I can not make this any simpler, so this post will be a bit long

The simplest thing for you to do is to go out and buy a DVD Burner for your Computer, but it may not be the only solution.

If you want to be able to watch a downloaded television show on your DVD Player. First check what formats it is able to play.

First check if it can even play burned disks (CD-r, DVD-r or DVD+r)

If it says VCD / SVCD then you can use your CD Burner to burn.

I personally have never done this so I don't know what programs to use. Maybe someone else on this forum has ??

If it says things like AVI or DivX or XviD or Mpeg4 it will most likely be able to play some of your downloaded videos and you will be able to convert the others using programs that you can most likely get for free or cheap of the internet
If it says that then all you have to do is try burning your videos as data CD's using Nero Express or Nero Burning ROM (I prefer Nero Express as I find very simple yet efficient).

Now if it says none of those things then you still have other options than Buying a DVD Burner.

1. If your computer and TV are relatively new then you may be able to connect them together so that you see on your TV what you otherwise see on your monitor.

2. Buying a DVD player that will support all those formats (mights as well just buy the DVD Burner )

The best thing is to both buy a DVD Burner and a DVD player that plays most formats or getting your Computer and TV connected

You can burn data DVD's which will play in your new DVD Player (1 Data DVD will fit more than 6 times what a data CD will fit)

Im sorry if this has cofused you even more

BTW Neither a DVD Burner or a DVD Player that support many formats have to be very expensive. Check the prizes on the internet and at your local electronics store and see for yourself

Default I tried...and...

Thanks so much Sleepless for taking so much time to help me!!!!!

I tried the Nero Express...seemed to be working great until I went to play the copied CD-R/RW and nothing showed up except the Nero cover.

My computer is nearly 3 years the new computer is the way to go.

I could buy the DVD recorder...but then again, I'm not sure that would satisfy all the problems.

Presently here is what the HP Pavillion computer has:
1.3 GHZ
256 MB
40 GB
64 MB of Video Memory

I'm writing a book so lots of pages, reference pages saved, photos, and now new found love of downloading television programs from LimeWire to keep me in the English language loop (I'm living in Italy right now).....

So...I'll give it to this next week before a purchase decision is made.
