Nero Smartstart slide show program

Hi -
I am using the above program and just when I go to burn it (I do have a blank DVD in the burner) it give me the message "Unable to prepare data for recording; prepare session failed: transcoding of videos failed."

I only have photos on the slideshow and no video. They are all mpeg's. I have used this program before to burn movies but never a slideshow. How can I fix this? Thanks.

I have last week just got and installed a LG BH10 BluRay rewriter. It does read BD and DVD discs okay. It does burn BD25 blank discs though I have to use Imgburn as DVDFab does not seem to think there is...

Hi raywalton826
I think you could try using Verbatim or Sony blanks and use DVD Identifier from , just to make sure you
haven' t been sold crappy stuff .
I also would get in touch with DVDFab to expose my issue with my device and their product .
DVDFab 's guys are extremely client friendly at

Nero Vision 4 refusing to burn to DVD (Memorex DVD Burner)


if its having problems writing the lead in, it,s possible that the devices drivers are corrupt or incorrectly installed. to resolve this re-install nero, or better still upgrade to a newer version of nero.
also check that your media/ blank dvds are compatable. some writers support DVD-R But not +R.
if none of the above works, go into the device manager, and uninstall the DVD drive, reboot the computer, and re-install it. Other related problems are usually atapi or couffin drivers.

Burning files to DVD..............

You should be able to fill a DVD with files and burn using Nero.
Open Nero Smartstart ,Set to DVD,data,make Data DVD
then open a browser window, ie press the windows flag key and "E", locate the directory of files you want to burn, drag them into the Nero page. You should see the progress bar at the bottom of the screen gradually move towards the 4500MB position - this is the maximum for a DVD.
When you have listed all the files you want to burn, press next, change the disc name if you wish. Your DVD drive should be listed above the disc name - something like E:ASUS DRW-1608P3S ( this is my drive) then press "Burn"
If all is well, the drawer will open and you must insert a blank DVD into the drive. The files will then be written to the the disc.

If it does not work let me know and we can investigate further.

Problem burnind and reading!

Check that the writable DVDs you are using are compatible (+/-) with your LG DVD-RAM.
Go to Windows Explorer and check to see if the Sony drive is visible. It may not be connected or the Jumper switch may be set incorrectly.
Check you have drivers installed, take a look in Hardware manager.
Sometimes, it's a little difficult to copy CDs and DVDs when you have more than one burning suite installed - for some reason, they 'just don't get along'. Try uninstalling any suites other than Nero.
Or it may just be that your LG CD-RW drive is just that, and your DVD-RW drive is just that. So it wouldn't be possible to write DVDs on the CD-RW and CDs on the DVD-RW? Though I would assume Nero would detect that and use your hard-drive as temporary storage.
In Nero SmartStart, have you selected the CD or DVD tab to correspond to the project you're burning?
