    I just got Nero 7 the other day.
    I was told i need to use Nero Vision to put my MPEG files onto a DVD.
    Details:
    I have MPEG videos i want to put on DVD...Suggestions?
    Was told to use Nero 7...true?
    Nero 7 took 6 hours to transcode...that long for anyone else?
    I left it over night, when i woke up, i went to burn it to DVD and Nero would not recognize the disc i had in the burner.

    Any suggestions would be great.
    Thanks!

    I know you're new to the forum ....... and welcome to afterdawn...... but please do not double post! it's against forum rules..... you posted in Nero forum and Newbie forum the same question.... please wait for reply and don't double post.

    Using Nero Vision can run a while before it converts to DVD........your conversion times will vary depending on file and the specs of your computer...... so why don't you tell us about your computer and what is it's specs and what version of Nero do you have? If you have a Nero log to show us would be great, found here:
    Nero 7 history log location: Program Files>Nero>Nero 7>Core>NeroHistory.tx

    and here are some little tid bits about burning:
    1. burning speeds: burn at 4x so there will be less writing errors (rule of thumb is to burn at half the rated speed of the disk--8X disk burn at 4x).
    2. read manual for your stand alone player and use the disks that will play in your player. If your player is less than 2 yrs old then it should play the + or - R disks! I said SHOULD that's why you read the manual.
    3. try booktyping your drive to DVd-ROM so it will make your +R disks more compatible to players. Read this:

    4. make sure that there are no finger prints or scratches on your disk that make it hard for the player to read the disk!
    5. use good quality media (rule of thumb....buy the ones that are Made in Japan.) Verbatim is a top notch disk and is the only exception to this rule....some Verbatims are made in Taiwan and they are top notch!
    6. and don't burn too close to the outer edge of the disk ..... which will make the disk unreadable! but using good media you will be able to burn close to the edge better than lesser quality media. Just in case I only burn no closer than 4400MB, so if you can set your programs to that, all the better!

    follow these little tips of the trade and you'll have better success! good luck.
