    i have used TMPGEnc to encoded the movies i downloaded from kazaa, but after i encoded the movie, i try to burn it from nero. the size for the movie is way to big (1.23 GB) for me to burn it on to a cd (700 mb 80 mins) so can anyone help me?

    Split it. Go to our article section for guides. And use the search feature in forums, not too hard.

    I think the DVD->VCD guide has instructions. Or the DivX->VCD. With TMPGEnc anyway.

    Use the search, your burning process has failed (look for instructions how to burn, I recommend our Nero-VCD article) OR your player doesn't support VCD.

    Very likely a media issue, if you remembered to "finalize" the disc and burned it 4x or slower. Try some other brand. And for Sony -- most of the Sony players only support CDRWs.

    Endless, I thought the same thing with my dvd player. I'd push play and nothing, but then found out that if i click on 1 movie would start.give that a try....

    When you split the CD into 2 discs, do you just put the scrollbar into the middle and press Set End Frame?
    If you do, when you use Nero does it burn the 1st CD and when it's done does it say Insert Disc 2 or something?

    Also, is burning to 2 Discs the exact same as burning to 1 Disc, except the only changing the Source Range?

    Thanks. Please Reply. I'm new so i don't know much of this stuff.
