I found a solution!
The problem was that I had previously renamed the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter folder to something else in order to export a project from Windows Movie Maker (Nero codecs conflict with it for some reason.) Forgetful as ever, I neglected to change the DSFilter folder to its original state, and thus, Nero malfunctioned. Restoring the folder seems to have solved my issue. Instead of the 30GB previously required, Nero only asks for 12GB now and the transcoding process after that works as it is supposed to.
[QUOTE=t0nee1;2150117]Are you wanting to convert and burn a wmv to DVD with Ner0 vision,of all things?.. Why?..Import wmv in something BETTER like FAVC or ConvertxtoDVD, and choose 4.37 DVD-5 size output…
Besides being a bloatware piece of s**t, it wants to re-encode everything…I got rid of Ner0 many moons ago,and haven’t missed it one bit…But to be fair,to each their own!..[/QUOTE]
Thank you for your advice. I’ve acquired ConvertXtoDVD and I am in the process to creating a DVD menu for my project. I agree with you on Nero; it is bloatware and I rarely utilize more than a fraction of its “features”.
