Nero recording advice needed please

  Ray5776 16:16 07 Jul 2006

Hello everyone

What I am trying to do is record a TV programme (using freecom USB stick) and then record it to a DVD using Nero7.
Have made the DVD ok but it will only play on a computer not the DVD player with the TV.
To make the DVD I dragged and dropped the file into Nero as an Mpeg file.
Can anyone tell me the correct way to do this please so that it will play on a normal DVD player and the PC.

Use nero vision express to convert and burn the files to dvd format.

I can find nero vision4, will that do it? or where is nero vision express please.

it could be that you have an old dvd player without the right format you need one that plays mpeg mp3 etc.

nero vision 4 will do it.

Thanks both of you, have dragged and dropped an mpeg file into Nero Vision4/Make DVD/Add video files.
What do I do now, I cant find a burn button or anything about converting.

Thanks De Marcus, I suppose that was rather obvious but its been a long day :-)

I have used Nero Vision to create two disks now,
one on re-writable DVD and one on write once CD they both play OK on my PCs but neither will play on normal DVD/CD player. I have tried two different players.

Anymore help out there please.

Explore the DVD you've just burnt and tell us what file types are on it.

Also, try burning at the lowest speed and give nero the highest priority either via task manager or the program itself. Shutdown all other unnecessary background programs.

Says its an MPEG Movie

  Ray5776 19:36 07 Jul 2006

how exactly do I convert it to the correct format please.
