I posted part of this under "New Nero Thread". Anyway I get the error that medium (cd) is not empty when trying to burn VCD's in Nero. When I know it's blank, and the disk info thingy in Nero tells me it's blank too. I have tried different type cd-r and cd-rw to no avail. Nero will encode the avi but will not burn it. I burned one vcd successfully (the first), and havent been able to since, on numerous tries. Next is TMPGEnc. I dl it from kazaa. When i try to encode an avi to mpeg it tells it's not supported or wont open. It acts like it will only open files that are already in mpeg format. Am i crazy or something? No? Well ima bout ta be!!!!!!!!!!
