Hey guys, brand new to this forum and hope someone can provide me with an answer or at least things to try. First, my system: AMD 3000+, XP SP1, 1Gb 266 DDR RAM, 2 HDD Plenty of space, NTSC File System, NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A Burner. Second, my software used: Nero 188.8.131.52 TMPGenc & TMPGenc DVD Author Besweet & Besweet GUI WinDVD 4 Third, my problem: I had a movie in mpeg format that I wanted to convert to VOB etc to burn to DVD to watch on my standalone DVD player (Mustek make, checked for compatability with playing DVD+R/DVD+RW's on http://www.dvdrhelp.com). So I went out and bought a NEC Burner (Type shown above) and some cheap Packard Bell DVD+R's to try my first attempts on, as i've read everywhere about people ending up with beer mats from their first trials. These discs are 2.4x Max, 4.7Gb capacity. I converted the mpeg files successfully using the software I had - making sure the sound was converted at 48000 for DVD support and made sure the resolution was one of the correct standards for playing on a standalone DVD player. This all went very successfully, until I had the VOB, IFO & BUP files ready for burning. I used TMPGenc DVD author to create myself a motion menu with chapter selection screen and a standard play all button before conversion. I then tried using this program to burn the DVD, the progress bar reached 100% and all was looking good until I tried it in the DVD Player, and nothing. Well, the player displayed No Disc. Tried it back in the PC, and the disc wasn't recognised at all. I then switched to Nero 184.108.40.206 as I thought maybe the TMPGenc burning software might not be up to scratch and have read most places that Nero is the way to go. I used a good guide to assist me through the process, but ended up with the exact same problem. I read some guides on here and got some very helpful advice from ScubaPete, Jerry746 & fasfrank from one of the threads on this newbie forum, including trying the VOB files with software. I tried them in winDVD and they play fine, with all menus working etc. I thought it might help to list the files below: VIDEO_TS 14Kb IFO File VIDEO_TS 14Kb BUP File VIDEO_TS 14,574Kb VOB File VTS_01_0 72Kb IFO File VTS_01_0 72Kb BUP File VTS_01_0 14,588Kb VOB File VTS_01_1 1,048,404Kb VOB File VTS_01_2 1,048,404Kb VOB File VTS_01_3 1,048,404Kb VOB File VTS_01_4 996,972Kb VOB File 3.97 GB (4,271,634,432 bytes) Sorry about the length of this post btw. Now I have put the file details in here because the only thing I notice is that Nero doesn't seem to be burning the VTS_01_4.VOB file to the disc. I can't tell if it is missing any other files out, and can't check this hypothesis as the disc won't read on my computer nor the standalone player!!! I was wondering because it was a different size to the rest if there was a problem with my conversion? If this is fine is it my cheap crappy PB blank +R's. I'm going to buy some RW's for testing on, anyone recommend which I should go for - a good quality recommendation if possible. If anyone could help I would be much appreciated, I just can't figure out the problem! Thanks in advance, reedy.
