[QUOTE=Lucianp;1995346]I used to burn avi’s to dvd ok using nero 6 until I had a computer crash.
I have since rebuilt the PC and installed a Samsung Lightscribe CD/DVDW SH-S182M. At the same time I installed Nero 7 which came boxed with the Lightscribe.
[U]The problem I am experiencing is burning avi’s to dvd[/U].
The avi’s are good quality as I have tested them on the pc.
When I burn them, the video quality is good but the audio sounds like it is way too fast although it does appear to stay in sync with the video.
I have tried burning speeds as automatic and also at the lowest speed 2x with the same results.
Someone told me I need to install a codec but shouldn’t the software already have that? and would it burn them at all if the codec was wrong or not installed?
[U]The burning time has also increased dramatically.[/U] For a 710,706 KB avi it takes about 3 hours. Previously it was about 1 hour.
The reason I am burning them to dvd is to watch them on TV. (I don’t have a PVR built yet)
Any help on what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.
Transcoding with nero can take super long times, it's the burning that should take no longer than 9-10 minutes @ 8x. don't burn at 2x-4x too slow can return bad results. Burn 8x-12x. if you have 8x media use 8x burn.
so pay attention as to what is taking so long the transcoding or the burning
