I've had a rough time trying to make just 1 dvd. I've already burnt 8 all of them don't play on any dvd players except the one that's a DVD/Media player. I was first trying to burn an mpeg1 with nero vision express. I thought when it transcoded it was transfering the file from mpeg to the dvd format it needs to be to play. It didn't play, so I tried converting the format to mpeg2. that also didnt' work. Then I got WinAVI video Converter. That transfered the mpeg to a .vob file. So I tried to load the video into nero and got the message: DVD Video Plug in Required Due to patent license restrictions, Dolby Digital 2-channel decoding is not available. It goes on to tell about how you need to buy Nero 6 or the DVD-Video Plug-in. I'm assuming if i don't buy the plug-in then the software I got is useless as it won't seem to make dvds. Am I going about things wrong? Is there really no other way I can't easily make dvds? I was under the impression that you could just take your mpegs into nero and it'd do the rest. Is there really no way that it can do that? Ok I think I've asked enough questions. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Cynthia.
