No matter what software I use, either Nero 6.3, or EZCD 6.1...I just can't seem to get a mini-DVD burned that will play with my set top DVD. The set top DVD is a Pioneer, that says is DVD-R compatible. I have all the updates for either software, so the question I believe I need to ask, is what format is the best to encode from? .avi, mpg1, or mpeg2? Is there a codec I am missing? Has anyone used these software titles to encode and burn a miniDVD, or should I just stick to crappy VCD formats? Thanks.
