I have just got anew DVD Burner and got with it the above,i mainly got a DVD writer to back up lots of .avi files i have,they are starting to fill my Hdd so i wont to put them on DVD.
Trouble is im not used to Nero7 and everytime i add files to a dvd it starts encoding it to play on a stand alone dvd,and all i really want to do is add them to dvd as single files and watch them 1 by 1 on the pc when i want to. I have tried making a data dvd,and this does the same thing but then i get a pop up saying my Mpeg codecs will expire after 30 days.This is a bit worrying as i dont want them to become unviewable in 30 days time.Im not sure if it meant that but i dont know. So my question how do i simply back up my films without all the bells and whistles?
Thx,guys i have tried to burn as a data dvd but as i said earlier it comes up with the encoding thing and doesnt just copy the files to the disk,i have however just made a copy from one avi file i had and it did make a good dvd that plays on my home dvd,that not withstanding all i want to do is back them up and make more hdd space.I say "just made" i acctually took like 2 hours lol.One strange thing is that option in nero are in english and japanese i dont know why that is none of my other apps have multi-language.My biggest concern is will the things i save to cd/dvd become unuable in 30 days?
Hi Acolyte - sorry about the delay in responding -I believe Nero is just warning you that you won't be able to encypt MP2 DVD files once the trial period is expired - provided you record a data DVD it shouldn't be worrying about MP codecs- ubless the originating files need them.
