Creating a DVD

I'm trying to copy three or four episodes onto a DVD. I converted them from AVI to DVD files using DVD flick, last night I tried converting two of them and for some reason DVD Flick would not pass 'Authorise' I tried the same two this afternoon individually to see if one is corrupted but they wasn't maybe it had something to do with the name of the folder I was saving them to, the name being DVD~1. Anyways them two are done, the other two I done some days ago without any trouble.

Now I want to copy the said three or four episodes to disc, depending what the disc can hold. Using Nero, once you add Video_TS.BUP, VIDEO_TS.IFO and the VTS files it won't accept any more from the other folders. I tried renaming the files deleting the 'VIDEO' and 'VTS' at first then put them back in again and adding episode numbers but they Nero won't accept them.

Is there any other way?

You should have added all 3 or 4 AVI's at the same time, and converted the whole lot in one go. And if they are seperate episodes don't use the merge utility when writing them to the DVD, you can edit and produce a menu for each episode if that's what you want.

On my computer I can not burn folders onto a DVD but I can burn files. If I have several files in a folder, I burn them separately and it works. Try it and let me know cause I'm the subject interests me.

Since you have nero installed, use nero vision express, create a dvd , add the original files and follow onscreen instuctions.

Who's thread is this? I thought snowy30 started this thread, so what is 281apple coming up with an entirely different problem for?

Not much help here then, one points out the obvious the other has a different problem.

Why are you using DVDFlick (good though it is) when you have Nero? Nero will do the whole process for you. Use the "Make your own DVD movie" option in Nero, Add the AVI files to your 'Project' (that's what Nero calls it) until the DVD is showing as full, choose/create and edit your menu and titles and away you go. Nero will then encode and burn the AVI files to DVD so that they can be viewed on your standalone DVD player and TV.

Now I feel daft! I didn't realise Nero could convert AVI files to a DVD file.

With what has been going on round here I overlooked a simple solution.
