How to get nero to write the proper data format

vbimport

#1

I changed dvd writers, and can no longer use my old writer, and had to switch to nero

I used to use sony cd extreme and it would wirte dvd data disks with two files, each a little over 2 gig, that my cdplayer could read

In nero ifo it would read
type dvd-r
capacity 4.07gb

file system is9660,joliet,udf
application sony cd extreme -build .0.723

Now, when I try to get nero to do the same thing, it can write the data onto the disk, but when I play it, it never plays to the end of the file on the stand alone dvd player. It comews up OK on a w2k player In nero info

type dvd-r
capacity 4.19 g
filesystem ,udf

I record mpgs to hard disk from tv, and would like to simply write them as data files

Can anyone help

PRINCO is very poor quality media and is the source of your problems.
I would suggest using a different DVD-R media type.
This should resolve your problems.

Thanks… but it is not the media, it is the software. i’ve got ~ 200 disks where it worked with princo

let me try to be more clear. Nero udf is somehow getting stuck on the 1 GB barrier, at least when it is seen in a dvd player, not on the w2k explorer view

Here is the test I took a mpg file (1 hr 43 min 57 sec = 6237 sec=
2.277308 GB) and encoded it onto a nero disk as a data disk in udf format

Displayed on the video player all I could see was (47 min 49 sec= 2869 sec =>1.048404)

The ratio of the time I can view to the the total time is the same as the ration of 1 GB to total file size

For some reason Nero is getting stuck at a 1 GB limit when writting udf files

Once again, this is not a problem with the same media and format ( udf 1.02) using sony cd extreme

One option is to split the files at the size I desire, as the program
writes the mpg files.

My problem is that it’s easier to track the
files, when they are on the computer, as larger files, and to just
copy them as dvd data disks under sony cd extreme. I play them using
prismiq media server. I was faced with a 4 gb limit, but had no
problem reading the big files in my mpeg iso compliant reader.

Now the galling thing is that nero is writting all the data . The udf
1.02 files show up just fine in w2k explorer, its just that when
stuffed in the dvd player , all I get is 1 gb

I’d say it was the dvd player, but it is not. Under the older slower
sony cd extreme, I’ve made over 200 disks without a hitch

One reason I stick to mpg, ther for mat they are recorded in, is that
I find the less I fool around with a file, the more likely the audio
and video is to stay in sync
