I am taking home movies, and making them into a DVD with menus and chapters. Its is 4G's
The program will hang about 2/3 of the way through the (transcoding of one of the streams, I think) All buttons are functional, and the elapsed time is still ticking. The total project will take about 6 hours, it hangs with 2 hours to go.
Where is the Nero log?
I have plenty of room for storing the temp files. As I mentioned before this happens with all options (burn to disk, or image or file).
I hope this helps a little more.
Thanks again and thanks for the welcome
