    Burning with Nero

    In my endeavour to create / burn a video from HD to DVD and following the Nero tutorial, when I get to the "Add Video Files" stage, I find that only 8 WMP videos are listed in the "My Video" folder when in fact there are 25 in it, though granted, 17 are in other formats like Real Player & GVF none of which can obviously be selected. Does anyone know why Nero only identifies files in WMP format If so, what is the procedure for accessing, converting & burning the other types? Please see Attachment. Thanx S Fox.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    You have 8 files associated to WMP, 10 to Real and the other 5 I can only see as the icon. It appears that Nero is only associating WMP as a File Type

    Re: Burning with Nero

    Thanks Jezza. I think I will wait to see if anyone else from experience can further enlighten me on this matter as I have been previously assured that Nero will convert various file types. It's all new territory to me so think I will wait and see what other comments come in. Maybe I will have to return to the sites I downloaded them from and see if they are available in WMP besides the ones I selected. I seem to recall noticing on some of the sites that they are available in two formats. WMV & Real player
    Many thanks S Fox.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    What version of Nero are you using and specifically, which component within Nero are you accessing?

    I run with Nero version 8 Ultra and your screen shots are not familiar. It looks like you may be using the Nero Vision module, v7 or earlier. As Jezza suggested, it is possible that you only have WMP (or WMV) extensions associated with Nero. When Nero is installed, you get the option to associate file types with the Nero package. Perhaps a re-install is in order so that you can apply the appropriate associations.

    By the way, I might suggest that you refrain from installing Nero Scout. It can take up a lot of resources while running in the background indexing your system.

    Cheers, Bob
    Regards,
    Bob

    Re: Burning with Nero

    Hi Bob. I am using Nero - Version 7. clicking my way through > Nero Vision> Photo & Video > Make you own DVD-Video > Add Video files. The icon that is difficult to make out [GVF] in my last attachment is in fact Google Video File. I was advised in another post that ConvertXtoDVD is more user friendly & that even professionals can find Nero a little difficult to use sop maybe that is the way forward for me. Thanks anyway S Fox.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    I have the same version of Nero as you do, but have never used it for video. (In fact it consumes more space on my hard drive than any other program or suite, and I only use it for a couple of functions!) It does, as you can see from your screen shot, have its own format for video as well as what you are beginning with.

    Nero has extensive help files and the option for context-sensitive tips, and they have been updated from time to time, so I suggest you make sure you have the latest files including help files, and then go through the help entries. I may do the same as I have the program, but at this stage not the experience to offer you more than that suggestion.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by peterg on 20-Aug-08 21:26. Program was almost entirely wiped out.)</P>WARNING: the following post is now invalid because I have discovered that the fix has removed nearly all of my Nero installation. I'll have to get through to them for an explanation.

    I have just taken my own advice regarding updates, and there has been a significant update within the past month or so, which required me to turn off all other programs, grant permissions in several cases, and reboot at the end of the process.

    BTW, why not search your source for MOV files?

    I am now recharging my batteries to see if i can come up with some video to try it on, as I am curious myself.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    Hi Peter..... I hope you have not selected a video to experiment with as I would like to suggest one that I have downloaded to HD but it is only available in Play Real Media. If you care to take a look at the said video it can be found by logging on to [url]http://www.levitt.tv/[url] then scroll down to Special Topics under which heading you will see UGEN 1 A Physicist Looks at Creation." Whilst this particular video is available only in Real Player Media I have just noticed that further up the list is another video V733 The Rapture... which is available in Play Flash and Play MP4 so maybe these are compatible with Nero 7! If you have any luck with either of these two items perhaps you can let me know how to proceed and I will follow your directions.
    Regarding the comment Bob made about re-installing Nero and selecting the appropriate file associations, that is new territory to me as the computer came with Nero already installed so I will have to think hard before I take the plunge and un-install the current version & re-install it again. As I also mentioned previously, I have ConvertXtoDVD which I'm told is much easier to use than Nero so I'm open to suggestions. I also note that Nero is 343MB in size whereas ConvertXto DVD is only 18.78 MB, what do loungers think about dumping Nero and using ConvertX ? Regards S Fox.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    I haven’t heard from Nero yet, but I have discovered saved Nero files for the today’s correct date and time in Appdata/Local/Temp, so it appears that something went wrong on rebooting or elsewhere. I have a very recent full backup but have also made significant changes since that time, so I hope that Nero will help me to recover without resorting to that nuisance.

    I had in mind my own video camera’s files, which are in AVI format, each with a small corresponding THM file. I can edit using the manufacturer’s (Canon) own program, or Microsoft’s Movie Maker, or whatever else is floating around. I haven’t taken editing very seriously so far.

    As for what is online, MIT will give you a tuition-free MIT education and the only string attached is that you won’t get a degree from them no matter how many virtual courses you take: OpenCourseWare. Only certain of the courses have videos, and Physics I (1999) is an entertaining example.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    While you and Silver Fox are struggling with your Nero problems, I hope you won't mind a secondary diversion/suggestion. I used Nero for a long time until its structure got so file-complicated that I couldn't bear the thought of downloading an update - there were so MANY program subsets and programs that were unnecessary. Like many others, some reported here in The Lounge, I also had problems running the thing and all I did was rather simple CD burns of audio or pictures (jpg). I finally gave up and switched to Ashampoo® Burning Studio 8 thanks to a special price offer that was reported here in The Lounge.

    I have never burned a video DVD with it, but I just gathered up some files and put them in a temporary folder, then pretending to burn them to a DVD. Ashampoo seems able to handle .wmv, .avi, .mov and .mpg files but NOT .rm or .ram (Real Media). Anyway, I just thought I'd throw it out there for your consideration in the future.

    Thanks Al. As with numerous other areas in which most of us have simple needs, Microsoft may offer within Vista sufficient functionality with no need for any third-party software.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    Good one, John! That's exactly the route I took, thanks to a post by Alan Miller way back. I got my initial copy for free, but not long after "registering" it I got an offer from Ashampoo folks to upgrade to the (then) latest for $10 bucks USD. I've been there ever since...

    Re: Burning with Nero

    I am happy to report success with the Nero fix and their excellent customer support. The big part was the 400 MB download plus another download to remove the version I had remnants of, given the route I took in re-installing.

    The latest version is 7.11.10.0, apparently released May 30, and it is most impressive. It includes support for Blu-Ray. If all goes well with your update it should take far less work than mine was.

    I can confirm that a fresh installation does ask about a million file associations, and I just accepted the defaults on the principle that i will change the associations later since I don't know what most of them are anyway. A utility picked up on the fact that one association was a security risk because it linked an executable.

    Edited to add that most of us want our programs to be Vista-compatible these days.

    Re: Burning with Nero

    Here is an added note on video editing and bargains. Pinnacle Studio has recently gone from 11 to 12, and the (Vista-compatible) version 11 Plus can be had locally for thirty bucks. Even that requires far more resources to run than my present computer can offer, but anyone who is shopping around might keep it in mind. I am still curious to find out what the capabilities of Nero are.
