Long time to burn

vbimport

#1

I burned with nero and it took like 1 hour … then the last 5 minutes it burned it … huh why does it transcode streams or whatever?? and make it bigger file size on disc ??? why cant u just use the file and put it on the dvd


#2

Nero tries to do certain stuff in the background- what are you burning?


#3

it sayed it was transcoding or something


#4

Don’t ask and don’t tell the content of media files that may or may not contain copyrighted material that you couldn’t possibly have a legal copy of yet.

I meant, what format are the files you are burning, and what mode are you using in Nero to burn them.


#5

the file is avi and im using nero vision 4 to burn it onto disk


#6

AVI is not a DVD compliant format, that is why Nero is transcoding the file, its converting it from what is most probably DivX into Mpeg2 and then making a DVD from it. Transcoding takes time.

If you have a DVD player that also plays back DivX files you could try making a data disc with just the AVI file on it (suggest using a RW disc to test with) and playing the AVI file directly.
