When I get to the last part of the burning process I select the write option and pick my folder that I want it to go to. I have my aspect ratio set to automatic, quality setting is set to high quality, sample format is set to automatic, encoding mode is set to high quality 2-pass vbr and audio format is set to automatic. These settings are the same settings that are in the basic guide thread to burning avi files with nero vision 4. This was said to be the best way to get the best quality. The person who started the thread said he preferred to write it to his hard drive first then burn it with nero burning rom. I can't even get it to write to the damn folder i've specified. As I said above I specify the folder I want it written to and I hit the write button. I don't have any fancy menus or anything fancy. Only the movie i'm trying to burn is on the menu screen. 2 and half hours go by for the transcoding to take place and when finished a burn error appears stating that burn process failed, I wasn't trying to burn it, why is it doing this???? I've tried 3 god damn times and everytime the same msg and the same specified folder is f^%king empty. I've also tried setting it up to just burn when it's finished transcoding and the same "burn process failed" msg comes up agian. someone help before i smash my computer into little pieces. Oh and one more thing....I used to just have it set up on the normal default settings: quality setting is set to automatic(fit to disc, encoding mode is fast encoding(1-pass) etc...etc. I have verbatim double layered discs, when I set the dvd description option to dvd 9 and proceed to burn, a msg comes up after the transcoding process that says "burn process failed, error in dvd description, how is this possible??? this leads me to have to go back and set it back to dvd and watch the meter go all the way into the red because there isn't enough room on the disc description selected. It will burn when I do this but that isn't the point. Any help on this would be apprecitaed as well. please help me on my first topic first i want the best burning result when I make my dvd's.
