Ok, so I transfered a home movie from my camcorder to my computer. Then I wanted to burn this to a DVD so it could be played in a DVD Player. I find that my 120 minute movie can be authorized into its .vob files using NeroVision Express. I navigate there from Nero 6 and find that a button there is missing!
I made a few snapshots to show you what I encountered.
Here is what my current NeroVision Express menu looks like. As you can see, it is missing the “Make DVD-Video” button.
Here is what the menu is supposed to look like. This was taken from the NeroVision Express Manual.
My Nero 6 is an OEM version, meaning it came bundled with a Sony DVD-RW drive that I purchased months ago at BestBuy.
This particular DVD-RW drive was installed in my previous computer, and so was Nero 6. I do not recall ever using NeroVision Express because my computer was not equipped with IEEE 1394 FireWire ports to upload video. That computer’s motherboard eventually died, but I will not get into detail about that…quite depressing…
Anyways, I went off and got a new computer around 2 months ago.
My computer did not come with a Sony DVD-RW drive, yet I installed Nero 6 on it anyways, now finding that I cannot authorize my video because of that missing button.
I began to think if my Lightscribe DVD/CD-RW drive cannot perform this funcion, so Nero 6 left out this button. I was browsing every square inch of the manual, and found this. I was wondering if my particular verion of Nero 6 even came with the DVD-Video plugin, even though it is an OEM. Is it a retail version?
Ultimately, here is my question: If I install the Sony DVD-RW drive from my previous computer into my current one, would I be able to find this missing button on the menu? Would I have to reinstall Nero 6, and then it would recognize the Sony drive being there, and install the DVD-Video plugin?
I am desperately wanting to make my first home DVD, and any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need some more information, let me know and I can post a snapshot of it to show you.
Thanks in advance.
