    Hi there guys,

    I recently converted a batch "6" of *.avi video files into DVD format with "WinAVI Video Converter"

    The DVD files came mainly out as: *.vob with *.bup, *.ifo and *.pls

    I burned them on a reliable DVD-R disc using "(Nero Express)" but the DVD wont wont play properly.

    I cannot go to the different episodes and it crashes after running for a few seconds.

    Can you please tell me what I need to do to solve this problem. PS: I put everything in the VIDEO_TS Folder

    I'm thinking of getting the "(Roxio Media Creator 7)" Software Bundle
    I've read that one of the software in the bundle can create dvd menus etc. Is this the solution?

    Hi theren iwantit, Welcome to aD `

    If you get Roxio you pretty much better forget using most every other DVD ripping software ESPECIALLY Nero.

    Roxio doesn't play well with others (and that's an understatement !).

    I think you went wrong using Nero Express. You should be using Nero Classic.

    Try it again using this handy-dandy little guide I wrote -

    First, create a folder for your work on your desktop OR your HD. – Name it something that you'll be able to find. I named mine C:\All My DVD Work\The Last Samurai sings Swami (off key). Now load your IFO, BUP and VOB files there - make sure they are in a folder named VIDEO_TS written like that (all in Caps) - some programs like DVD Shrink will make the properly named folder for you, others you must make the folder yourself - Nero needs that folder with all it’s contents in order to work properly –

    OK then, is everyone comfy ? Good - its now time for - -
    “Uncle” ScubaPete’s Step by Step, Let’s burn with Nero 6 Guide -

    First - Do not use Nero Wizard -
    Please follow EXACTLY -
    When you open Nero Burning ROM, you will be at the “New Compilation” window. Directly under the title “New Compilation” is a choice block to choose either DVD or CD, choose “DVD”. Directly under that click on the “DVD Video Icon.” Then click “New” in the upper right corner of that screen, NOT the main screen.
    You now are in the “DVD Video” window. In the left screen, click “VIDEO_TS”. In the “File Browser” screen, 3rd from the left, trace your path to the VIDEO_TS folder, the one you made earlier holding all of your files and click on that folder. All of your VIDEO_TS files are now opened in the right screen. Click on the top file, hold down the “Shift” key and then click the bottom file thereby hi-lighting the entire column of files. Click and (holding the left mouse button down) drag the entire column of files to the open screen, second from the left and release the mouse button.
    Now click the icon on the task bar that shows a match on a disc, and then click “OK” and now, clear the room, stand up tall and shout out, “Burn Baby, BURN” ! One more time, let me hear you say it, “Who’s your Daddy Now ???”
    Guess what iwantit ? You are done !!!

    (Wheeew, now I really need a cigarette)

    Keep all fingers and toes away from Ms. Computer. Never mess with the lady when she’s working – it would be hazardous to your health, you understand -
    Go and have your coffee, when Nero is done, she will let you know ;-))

    Enjoy your backup,
