    Have have tries multiple programs (Nero, x copy, decrypter, ....) to burn a video from my hard drive and nothing seems to work. This video is something that I downloaded and I am thinking that because it is not saved as a VIDEO_TS file, that could be the reason it wont burn. Nero and other programs wont even select the video file. Any suggestions would be very appriciated.

    skoogbw,

    It sounds like you've accurately answered your own question - Nero, Decrypter or XCopy can't be blamed if you don't fed them the correct food, they won't work for you.

    Worms love eating dirt:-(

    But you won't eat it ! Time to blame yourself for not providing the proper table setting !

    I'm guessing you're dealing with AVI's - You need to use TMPGEnc to convert those files to MPEG-2 (DVD compliant) files THEN use TMPGEnc DVD Author to convert the MPEG's to your needed VOB's - then you have a great meal top offer DVD Shrink and Nero :))

    Off to the kitchen you go, put on your chef's hat, roll up your sleeves and think of the great DVD's you'll have for desert :D)

    Pete

    BTW, Welcome to the Club -
