I have wasted more time, effort, money, disc, etc... than I can afford to anymore. For starters, I have been a member here a while... but seldom post b/c 1.) I try to figure stuff out from the guides here and 2.) I hate to ask questions that I know you guys probably get sick of answering. So upfront I apologize for the aggravation. I am having a problem making quality DVD's from downloaded movies/videos. I am using Nero Ultra and I should be updated with everything as far as I know. I am using Verbatim LightScribe DVD+R for discs and my computer is an HP Pavillion dv8000 with built in DVD burner. #1). One problem is getting a full length DVD burned to a single disc. I have tried to go by the excellent guides posted on this site... all of which again I think are excellent, and beautifully demonstrated... it's just my own lack of understanding that's the problem. So back to my problem, I don't know how to get a full DVD on a single disc yet still maintain all of the high quality settings. #2). Even though I end up having to burn one DVD on two seperate discs, I still get a lot of freezing (or whatever it's called when it stops and you see what looks like to me fragmented pixels all over the screen). #3). I know that I should use Nero DVD-ROM Burner, but I've tried and I can't get it to recognize the files... or maybe it didn't find a VIDEO_TS folder... anyway, it was something like that... either way I couldn't get video files pulled up on the DVD-ROM Burner. #4). Lastly, (and regarding #3 above)... I'm not very clear on what a VIDEO_TS folder is... like is it a folder that is generated automatically or do I have to manually create it (and if so, where?) Again, I REALLY hate having to bother you guys with problems that are mainly due to my own ignorance (but I really am trying to learn). Thanks so much for any help.
