Hello all. I'm a newbie when it comes to Nero. I have Nero 7 Ultra.
I've created several AVI files that I'd like to burn to a DVD and watch on my DVD player. I've got a Sony DVP-NC60P dvd player that doesn't recognize AVI files.
Can I use Nero to convert AVI files to a compatible file for my Sony?
Thanks for all your help!

You can use Export to File in Vision or, I think, use Recode to recode them. If you have a problem, just let us know and we'll try to help you through it.

Just to let you know, V7 is not fully supported in Win 7.

Thanks for the information. I'll give that a shot.
I'm using XP...reluctantly.

Hi fossil112,

You just need to create a Video DVD using Nero Vision. This application will transcode the AVI file into the Video DVD structure needed for playback on standard DVD players.

If you have a Nero 7 Retail version, then you should have the Nero Vision application included.

Start Nero Vision and select Make DVD -> DVD Video.

Then add your AVI file and click on "Next" (if you want to you can also edit the file by clicking on "Edit" before burning to DVD).

Then you will have the possibility to create a Menu for the DVD.

Finally click on "Next" to Burn the project to a disc.

Please note that if you export the file to a video file with Nero Vision or if you recode it with Nero Recode into Nero Digital (mpeg-4), you might also have playback problems if your DVD player doesn´t support the format in which you exported the video file. The best way to be sure that the resultant DVD is playable is to create a Video DVD. If not please check the specifications of your player for the supported formats and compare them with the available formats when "Exporting video to file" with Nero Vision.

Regards,

If I watch the AVI on my computer, I get full surround sound through my stereo. But, when I create a DVD and play it in my DVD player, I get mono-sound through my stereo.
Where did the other channels go, or why did it become compressed into a single channel?
Forgot to mention I'm using Nero Vision to convert AVI to DVD compatible file.
Thanks!

Does this AVI have DTS? If so, you would need the DTS plug-in. Also, in Vision you should be able to edit the audio settings before the burn.

Digital Theater Systems. If you have any movies that were purchased within the last 15 years, they might have DTS listed.

When you play one of these disks you burned, click on the Audio button on your remote and you should see a display which tells you what the audio format it. What is it? Note you can change it by repeatedly pressing the Audio button.

Thanks for the information.
Switched to 5.1 audio instead of "automatic", so we'll see if that helps. Converting an AVI as we speak and will update once it's done.
