Codec packs?
Where do your responses come from?
Codec packs, burn to dvd, Rogue software?

I am sure there are MANY that can be bought.

I have a newer HP e9280t desktop with 9 gb ram and some bells and whistles .. all in all a fast machine.

I have recorded several WTV files and gone to the proper folder and right-clicked .... but to NOT get the "convert" option.

I have checked the HELP are of Windows 7 and it indicates:

1. Find the file
2. Right Click
3. Left Click 'convert" ... IT IS NOT THERE??

Hello cplumley2, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

In looking through this thread I noticed some others missing the menu item to convert to "dvr-ms". I have that option, but I also installed the "Windows Live Movie Maker", and the "Windows DVD Maker" from Microsoft. Not sure that is it?

Cheers!

Nope, that didn't do it. DVD maker was already in the system and I installed Live Movie Maker, but still no option.

HomerDK;

I do not have an answer for your issue. The only other thing I have on my system is the Shark007 Codex pack?

However, I am also experimenting with MCEBuddy for 64 bit and so far it does a quick job of converting any wtv files that get put in my "Recorded TV" folder, as mentioned here:

I get the convert option with most WTV files but not all. I've used it and it works quite quickly.
No idea why it doesn't show up on all WTV files.

Damn....I had the explorer option to convert from wtv to dvrms but it's disappeared.
I've been playing with codecs etc, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

The exact same exe is on my PC, and it used to be integrated into my explorer right click....I wonder what I did to remove it.
Too bad as it was excellent.

It must have something to do with codecs or default media players as that's all I was doing when I noticed it had vanished.

YEAH!!!!!!

So I selected one of my wtv files in my recorded TV folder and made WMC the default media player and the option to convert back to DV RMS is there again.

If you're having problems with DVR-MS files, check and see if you have encdec.dll in the System32 folder. Apparently a recent Symantec AV update generated a false positive for this file and mistakenly quarantined it. running an sfc /scannow in an administrative Command Prompt should restore that file, which is a codec filter for DirectShow.
