    Below is a portion of a nero burning guide:

    "Nero is only capable of burning pre-authored DVD-Video VOB-files. What it means is that you cannot add MPEG-2 video files to the DVD disc in Nero. You have to use a separate authoring software to produce the content to be burned. The folder, you want to burn, should have a couple of .BUP and .IFO files, and a bunch of 1GB .VOB files"

    Here are my questions:
    (1)What seperate authoring software do I need to produce the files I need?

    (2) Am I right in thinking this authoring software will convert MPEG-2 into .BUP, .IFO and .VOB files automatically for me?

    (3) Will it convert other formats to what I need (I.E If it is a .mpeg or .avi file

    TMPGEnc DVD Author
    It is not the most sophisticated authoring program available, but is very easy to use. Just input your DVD compliant MPEG2 files, make a menu, and export to a VIDEO_TS folder. You now have a DVD title-set that contains all of the IFO, BUP, and VOB files that you need.

    Burn the VIDEO_TS folder with Nero and your all set. Here is a simple, step-by-step guide:


    BTW: This program does not convert AVI or non-standard MPEG files to the DVD format. You need TMPGEnc Plus to do the actual format conversion.
