Hi, I've been burning VCD's that have been recorded with my PC Tuner Card & home video camera... using Nero Express 2. (These have not always played back well, with the DVD player often pausing or stopping... but I have since learned of a firmware update for the S530 which seems to have helped. Too early to sell how much it has helped as yet. I am also considering to try different CD media - but that is not the reason for this post!) I have just purchased a Pioneer DVR-108 internal DVD writer - which came with Nero Express 3. (Nero Express 3 takes much longer to make VCD's than Experss 2 used to... but now offers chapters, and menus etc.) When I create a DVD, it plays back fine within my PC - but my Yamaha S530 DVD player does not provide any audio. The same DVD played in a friends DVD player works fine. I am stuck as to where to go from here. Maybe there is a setting within Nero somewhere which can make the audio compatible with the S530 player? Could the "Media Cache DVD-R" media cause an error like this? (I am thinking not, as it can read the picture information OK.) I'm a bit frustrated that burning home video to a DVD is not more reliable - but looking at the other threads - I am clearly not alone! I would be most welcome for any feedback or suggestions. Thank you & regards, Antony.
