Nero 8: Fails to realloc DVD files

I am trying to use Nero 8 to author DVD video. The burn application I wrote works well with Nero 6 and 7. But when I try to run the same application on a Nero 8 system I run in to a NEROAPI_BURN_FAILED error.

I am not sure if I need to rewrite my application with any other flags or callback routines. I have also tried updating to the latest version of Nero API
The error message does not make any sense when I dump Nero error log because I do have the VIDEO_TS directory and the I can burn the same directory from another machine with Nero 7.

I would appreciate any thoughts or help ! Thanks.

When I dump Nero error log I get the following:

I had the same thing and got it working when I added the constant NERO_BURN_OPTION_USE_JOLIET to the NeroIsoTrack.BurnOptions.

I am doing the following.

Did you mean this ?

If those are your burnoptions then that should do it.

What language do you use?


I am wondering why Nero would think the VIDEO_TS directory is missing. First, the directory is present, and second, I can see that I am adding to the ISO track as an entry.

I know. In earlier versions of Nero the same code without the extra parameter just works. Must be a bug or a bug fix.

Any other thoughts on this issue? Is anyone running in to same issue with using Nero 8 on C++?

You need to fix the .ifo files, they hold all necessary info about the content.
