    hi there i hope there is an easy answer to this question,
    i have nero 6.3 and iam trying to burn files which are mpg and avi onto a dvd-rw,
    my dvd burner is dvd-rw compatible,
    i have tried to burn the files onto the dvd-rw but when i play them back on my dvd player in the lounge i get the picture/video no problem but the sound is on and off?
    when i play the files on my pc the sound is fine?
    i have tried burning the files 2 different ways,
    1st way is putting one file into a folder and then the same agian and the same again,
    2nd way is just putting the files onto the dvd-rw,
    i have also got the problem of not being able to choose which track/file i want to watch it only plays the files file, i cant skip forwards?
    i hope someone can help,
    thanks inadvance t4lor.

    I'm not to sure why this is happening then. Unless your player doesn't like the brand of the CD.

    There is a guide that has been stickied in the forum for making the movies (here), maybe something in here can help you more better.

    You are mixing formats---and that is a usually a problem Nero, or any other burning software doesn't know what to do with them. First convert your avi files to mpeg, then burn----thats the normal way of doing. I repeat, first convert your avi files to mpeg----then burn.

    Not true. I've combined AVI's (Xvids/Dvix), VOB's (both PAL and NTSC), MPEG1/2 into one project many times with NeroVision Express.

    Well then I stand corrected. My assumption is that it burns everything to mpeg. T4LOR---you need a program that has an mpeg codec built in. Mysticeyes seems to like NeroVision Express. Give it a go.

    thanks for you help people,
    since logging off last night i have used nero 7 ultra to burn 4 mpg to dvd-rw and still the same problem wont play?
    is it because your saying the files need to be mpeg and the files i have are mpg is this were the problem might be?
    or is mpeg and mpg the same file?
    thanks in advance, t4lor.
