    So are you using Nero express? You just need to find a dropdown button or menu that toggles Nero from the CD mode to the DVD mode. If you can describe exactly what you are doing I can tell you where to find it.
    Nero has a few different looks so please tell me what the sreen looks like.

    I'll guess..When you click on "new" a new compilation window opens, now look at the upper left side of the window and you will see a small drop-down menu with "CD" in it. Click on the menu arrow and change it to "DVD". Right below that is a vertical row of icons, click on the DVD-Video icon.

    You cannot back-up your movie with Nero alone, the movie is an encrypted DVD-9 and won't fit on your blank disc. You need to decrypt and shrink the thing to fit. Try DVD Shrink, its free and pretty easy to use if you follow the guides. Get it here and look at the guides too:

    If you still can't get Nero into the DVD mode let me know, let me know if it works too!!!

    Good luck,
    Frank

    After Shrink has finished analyzing your movie, and you have used the guide to remove unwanted stuff like sub-pictures and un-needed audio, select "back-up!" Shrink will ask for a destination folder. Select browse (I usually go to my D:\ partition, I have lots of room there) and use the "make a new folder option".
    Name the folder VIDEO_TS (all uppercase letters) Use that as your destination folder.
    Once Shrink is finished, you should close it and use Nero to burn with. When Nero asks for video files, they will be in the VIDEO_TS folder.
