Can't see MPG file after burning Nero 6 CD Extra

[QUOTE=wendivad;2578068]Also, I tried buring the NRG file and once again Explorer sees nothing on there other than the 3 Audio tracks.[/QUOTE]There was some error in reasoning of mine anyway.
If it affects the real drive it most likely also affects virtual ones :doh:

Just one addendum regarding SAO.
Whappo of course was right mentioning SAO as it’s used for CD Extra.
Nero also burns SAO when it’s set to DAO - just doesn’t shows that option.

But still, i have no real idea what’s causing your issue.
I’d first check upper/lower filters with ImgBurn (Tools -> Filter Driver Load Order).
Are you using AnyDVD or similar programs ?

I am using AnyDVD.

From ImgBurn:

I just killed AnyDVD and now the MPG shows up in the file directory. I have no idea why AnyDVD blocks the correct Explorer view bit it seems to be the root cause.

Just found these threads:


I knew AnyDVD can help with protected Audio CDs, but as i never ever used it (call me blasphemer ;))
i didn’t expect it to “do the magic” with default settings.

The Techspot article is interesting. The guy who deleted filters probably went thru overkill as I simply "Exit"ed AnyDVD and that did the trick. Then when I need it again I can just open it like any other program.

I’ve never consciously used AnyDVD to rip a CD so I’m not sure whether its does remove audio protection or not. I bought CloneDVD and AnyDVD primarily for shrinking DVD9 files to DVD5 (some protected).

I know when I use ImgBurn it gives you a warning about AnyDVD but I’ve never experienced any problem burning while its active. This is a completely new discovery i.e. its ability to “hide” content and one I’ll remember well.

Thanks for all of your help - much appreciated.

On your CDs burned with Nero 6 you can’t see the CDPLUS & PICTURES folders in Explorer ?

According to which standard ?[/QUOTE]

Yeah, sorry, mixed up with VCD etc.
