Do you have the mpeg 2 codecs from Nero, without them you canot burn a DVD video disk.

With Nero you need the full version(not the limited one that come with the DVD drive (or the computer)). I believe version 6 is the lowest version for DVD.

You can purchase the upgraded license from NERO

These are an ad on (which of course costs extra)

I think it was around 80 euros. But well worth it. Does the biz and simple to use.

I see that Arcosoft TotalMedia costs $79.99.

The exchange rate today at M&S bureau de change to buy $$, was $1.91 to the £1. That should make it about £42.

However, there a trial version is available.

Have you tried updating your current version of Nero to the latest version (, which is FOC from click here or click here?

You just might have to download an earlier version and then the latest as above; retain your present installation and install the downloaded version.

Does your version include SmartStart - if so you have the straightforward choice of burning to CDs or DVDs.

In addition Ahead provides very extensive Help files on its website relating to various aspects of burning disks. See:
