Nero 7 Ultra Advance-to-Time Index Problem Work-around

Posted under Nero 6 Ultra because there is no Nero 7 Ultra listing here on Fixya...

OK, I am going to tell you how I managed to work around this problem. I am posting this in the hopes it will save someone else the aggravation I had in stumbling around trying to find a procedure that would fix the problem. I found a work-around I can live with, so here's the problem and the solution follows. If it applies to you, I hope it makes your DVD-burning life livable again! Oh yeah, looks like Nero 8 is ready to come out soon. Just when you though it was safe.... anyway, here goes:

The Problem:

Burning DVDs using Nero 6.2 on Win ME was successful, and it allowed for advancing via time index. For example, I would burn a DVD and be able to go to any time point in the scene. However using Vista and Nero 7 Ultra, while DVDs burn successfully, the advance-by-time index is no longer available in DVDs burned under Vista with Nero 7. Details:

DVD burner: Buslink DBW1647-U2
O/S: Vista Home Basic
S/w: Nero, Ver. 7 Ultra, registered
DVD media: 16X Starlogic DVD-R
DVD player: Goldstar VM681M

The scenario is this:

1. Begin playing a chapter on the DVD
2. Click the chapter menu button on the remote.
3. Use up-down arrow keys on remote to try to get to timed index setting (ie, the one where if you select it and type "10:00" it will jump the scene to the 10:00 mark).
4. Can't select that option.


The Work-around:
1. Open Nero Vision and choose to create a DVD.
2. Access the Options by clicking More>> and make sure Nero SmartEncode is set to 'Disabled'. I think since Nero wants to convert everything to MPEG-4 that that might be a factor. Also, you may need to get some codecs, too. I am using the K-lite full pack available here: (Note that K-lite doesn't like other codec packs being on the same PC as it-- it nagged me to uninstall the DivX and Vista Codec Packs, and I did. I have discovered no problems so far since.)
3. Add your video files and step through the rest of the process. Settings to look out for: Automatically create chapters: NOT checked, Enable Forward/Backward Jumping: checked.
4. On the last screen, choose to Write to Disk instead of burning to the CD drive-- select a place to save the DVD-compatible files. Click "Burn" and off you go.
5. After your DVD files are written to disk (they will be in a folder called TS_VIDEO in the place you chose to save them to), fire up a copy of ImgBurn ( [Maybe Nero's image burner will work too, I just haven't tried it. In any case this is known to work so I am using it here.]
6. Switch Mode to Build -- you need to build an .iso image file in order to burn it to DVD -- and select the TS_VIDEO folder holding your Nero-ed files. Indicate a name for the output file and run it. This should not take nearly as long as Nero took in creating the raw DVD files. The .iso file you created will be close to the same size as the raw DVD files are in the TS_VIDEO folder Nero created.
7. Now switch mode to Write and indicate the .iso file you built as the input and select the target DVD drive you are using, then run it. The burn process should not take long, either, compared with the other steps.
8. Test it in your DVD player-- you should be able to jump to time indexes now.

I have no idea why this works as opposed to the transcode-then-burn process that worked for me under Nero 6.2. There may well be other ways to deal with this problem, I just don't know what they are. Downside to this approach of course is that you need about 33% more disk space as compared with that required for transcode-and-burn (t-and-b: need space for the original files and Nero temp files; the .iso approach: need space for the original files, the DVD-compatible files Nero creates, and the .iso file created from that). However this is an alternate procedure, not a fix, and the only approach so far I have found.

Plenty of good DVD discs gave their lives to discover this process. I hope I can save you some misery and trips to the store for more blank DVDs by posting it here.

Home dvd player won't play a burned dvd

Not all burned DVDs are compatible with all home DVD players.

Some things to do to help compatibility:

1. Use only DVD+Rs.
2. Burn at a slower speed (4x or below).
3. Make sure the software you are using to burn the DVD creates a menu. Most DVD players won't be able to play a DVD unless there is a menu; usually you can tell the software to skip the menu if you want but it still must be encoded onto the DVD.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating. :c)

Burned DVDs play on PC but won't play on home player. I have 3 PC (2HPs and 1 Parts built),running XP home, pro, media. I bought 2 Samsung SH-S182 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner, and have tried them on all 3...

Nero 6 and 7 does not provides us the facilitiy of burning the DVD in appropriate DVD Format. Instead it burns the DVD in the normal DATA Format, which is not supportable by our DVD Player. To play the DVD in our DVD Player we should burn the DVD in the appropriate DVD Burner which itself converts the extension of the movie and make it proper for a DVD Player to read it. It also adds some files to the DVD which is sometimes used by the dvd player in running the DVD.

Thank You

Nero 7 burning used for pictures/video

There are many was to burn photo or dvd using nero.
The only thing you need to know is what format your dvd player accepts. If it accepts jpeg or kodack then you can burn staright to the cd.
If your dvd player hase Divx the tiy can burn any media to cd using Divx player. If not then you need to convert the file to dvd format.
Using Nero to make a dvd.

1. click on Nero and select DVD on the top middle and then click on the tab Photo & DVD
2. Then click on MAKE YOUR OWN DVD
this will open a new window here you need to select from the right hand side ADD VIDEO FILES.
3. Once loaded click next and let Nero recode the video format to dvd.
4. Insert a new dvd and burn it

This is the only way to recode a normal video file to dvd format.

Hope it works for you as its worked for me many times in the past.

Good Luck!!

When you open Nero select copy dvd. Select the dvd-rom as the read drive. Put the dvd to be copied in there. Select the dvd-rw as the write drive and place a blank dvd r or dvd rw in it the select copy.
