My LG GSA 2164D came with some software called Nero StartSmart. I can’t find out whether it is a version of Nero 6 or Nero 7, and am having lots of difficutly getting it to work. I’m just trying to burn mpeg2 files onto a DVD disc to watch on my television’s DVD player.
Does anyone know this software, and should it be able to burn movies onto a DVD disc? [B]The only option in the software that looks perhaps appropriate is “Make Data DVD”. Is that the same as making a movie DVD?
Sorry if this is the wrong forum - this is my first post here.[/QUOTE]
No it’s not. This would work if you have a player that supports/plays naked (un-authored) MPEGs. You probably need to convert your MPEGs to DVD compliant files first, then burn as DVD-VIDEO. For the most part the versions of Nero supplied with burners will not do this conversion unless you pay to upgrade. It is suitable for general burning tasks, audio CD’s etc.
I suggest you get the free DVD Flick to make playable DVDs. There are many guides floating around.
Note the free, ancient, BETA [B]DivX[/B]toDVD is a poor choice.
