    I have tried Nero, but it keeps saying that disk isn't correct format, please insert CD for burning, and it automatically ejects the DVD. Can you give detailed instruction please, it would be much appreciated. The version of nero I am using is 6

    Thanks

    When I open Nero, I get A new Compilation Screen with Multisession tab opened, on the Left hand side of this screen, there are options like
    1.CD-ROM (ISO)
    2.Audiuo Extra
    3.Mixed Mode CD
    Approx 12 sections in total etc,

    I don't see where to tick on DVD at the top that you say.

    The other thing I meant to ask is, what kind of DVD disks must I use, I have 2 types already which are DVD+R and DVD+RW.

    Here is a question for you. As figured, I put the 7 CD's on the HDD. They each have their own directory so nothing was overwritten. Compiled it and burned it to DVD. Went to install and the program asks for cd 2. It wont just read from the DVD and install everything. It believes it is still Disc 1 when it is asking for disc 2. Each disc is named the same. That is where the confusion is. Am I missing something in the compilation of the 7 cd's into 1 dvd?? Is it possible there is something hidden on the different disc's that tell it CD2??
    Any help would be appreciated.
