hi folks. Ok, I'm at wits end with this stuff and desperate for some advice from someone who has successfully converted a PAL DVD to a burned NTSC DVD. The PAL DVD has to be ripped, converted and shrunk to fit a standard 4.7 GB disk. I have tried a number of programs but no one program can do the job. Nero 6 claims to do it and does a good job, BUT when I try and add files to burn, I get some stupid "can't use this file" error on half the .VOB's. The problem is it does not do the PAL > NTSC conversion until burn time which means I can't just use the basic Nero Burning functions, unless the conversion function is hidden somewhere in there that I can't find. Suggestions on how to make Nero 6 work or is there another program or combination of programs that will do a better job?
