I am trying to figure out my Nero 6 Suite. I filled up a few dvd's full of mp3's only to find my DVD player wouldn't read the disc. I then used the proper BURN MP3 Disc button and copied the same mp3's with DVD player compatability.
Now I am having a similar problem with avi's mpg's, divx that are stored on my hard disc. I want to put them on portable media so I can rebuild my system ect., and also so I can view them on my larger TV screen from time to time.
My DVD player says it can read these files but it won't even recognize the disc muchless play the files.
I don't want to convert the files into DVD format (why my high quality files of medium quality compressions?), but that is the closest choice on the Nero menu to what I want to do. At any rate it freezes up when I try it.
I simply want to burn these files in a format that my DVD player will accept so a Menu of avi,mpg,divx,mp3 files will come up like as with the mp3's I finally figured out.
Yea the DVD Players say they read mp3's and avi's ect but they don't tell you that they won't read thethe disc they are on without some mumbo jumb program telling the players hey it's ok. Look here.
Should I burn avi's and mpg's with the same settings as if I was burning an mp3 file dvd disc?
I realize this is probably a dumb question and I'm pretty good in other areas of computer savvy but a newb to burning video media in a DVD compatable way. I can burn them simply as Data files and you'd think that if a Player says it can play Avi's ect that would be good enough. I guess not. What do I need to do.
Anxiously awaiting a savior.
