Burning DVD-R playable on a stand-alone DVD Player using Nero Express 6
I'm having problems using Nero Express 6 to burn dvds which are playable on any DVD Player. When I've tried burning Data DVD and DVD-Video, both work fine on my PC, but on the stand-alone DVD Player.
I've seen a tutorial on the net re this, which guides you to open Nero is classic view and then burn the video files onto DVD by dragging and dropping files into the Video_TS folder. However, I don't know how to open Nero in classic view. Can you help please...I've already wasted so many DVDs in the process!!

I'm going to assume you are using a Windows operating system if you are using Windows media player. Windows media player does not come with the ability to burn or rip dvds. If your computer came with a dvd burner installed it should have also come with the burning software. You need to look for software labeled "Nero" or "Roxio" or another name that alludes to the fact that it will burn your dvds for you. Most of the software is pretty user friendly and if you need help using it you can just Google the software name and what your problem is and you can usually find an answer.
Now the tricky part is getting the video to a format that will allow you to burn it to dvd AND be played through a standard dvd player.
In order for your video file to be played in a standard DVD player it will need to be encoded in the MPEG-2 format. You will need software to do this for you. An excellent program would be "DVD Flick"
LifeHacker has put out an excellent tutorial explaining how to use DVD Flick here:
i think you,ve hit the nail-on-the-head.
The laser has to power up highrer to write a DVD, or ocassionally have a dual laser. 1 for read/write CD. And 1 For Read/Write DVD.
Certain cd roms, only use CD- media. it,s probably worth checking which media is supported by the drive.
Also check the drives aren,t conflicting, on the same ide channel, sometimes swapping channels, ide primary/secondary can help, or swiitching Master/Slave/cable select jumpers on the drives Themselves.
I had the same problem before upgrading my RAM. Seems video burning software like nero are RAM hogs; if you do not have a large amount of RAM then it slowers the burning speed down to a crawl.[ BTW I didn't get maximum burning speeds using nero on a Windows Vista computer until I upgraded to 2 GB RAM] Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
If you use the Nero Smart start, you should see an icon to switch from burning CDs to burning DVDs. Once you click this icon, you should be able to burn to DVDs.
