Hi all :) ,

I have just recently got a DVD recorder and have started using Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 I have also got Nero which I have used for a couple of years for burning CDs.

I used Roxio to convert some files from DIVx to DVD, these have been saved as VOB files, but I cannot record them to disc.

The folder is VIDEO_TS. I tried copying the whole folder and it recorded but it won't play on my computer or DVD player. So I thought you might need to copy the individual files instead, but I get the following:

When using Nero to burn them:
I highlight the files and press "ADD" and I get "NO COMPATIBLE FILE FOUND"

When using Roxio to burn them:
The files don't seem to be in the folder.

I bought ROXIO cheap from Staples (as it had NO box or instructions - and I thought, "How difficult can it be")

I am new to DVD burning so i'm sorry if this sounds like a stupid question. :eek:

Any help would be much appreciated.

Roxio and Nero don't usually play well together, so they USUALLY can't be on the same computer. They conflict with each other. Try getting rid of one or the other. You can always re-install, if it doesn't help.

Everyone I know, personally and online, that had both, had problems. Once they got rid of one, problems stopped.
I, personally, prefer Nero. It does a much better job, for my purposes.
Good luck! :)

Are you using Nero Express? When it fires up choose 'DVD Video Files' then just point it to the Folder, not the individual files. But as the previous poster said Nero and Roxio do not always play well together.

I've heard that Nero is supposed to be a very useful application but it's a bit unfortunate that it's named after a Roman despot equalled only by Calligula in notoriety. Isn't this something of a PR gaffe? LOL:D
