Open super encoder, set the output container to MPEG

Add a file then encode, if it returns an error, tick use direct show, also check the folder it is saving the files to

When the burn process fails with Nero, it usually displays a box to create the log, click yes then save it

Use re-writeable discs if possible until you resolve this

how there- sorry i am confused- how can i determin the settings that i need for my video file?
ir mencoder or ffmpeg or ffmpegtheora2?
Does the output video container need to be mpeg 1 or mpeg 2? does the output adio codec need to be mp2, mp3 or AC3?

If you press and hold the left mouse button on the top of super encoder, are you able to move it up enough to see the encode button

no...but anyway Super Encoder does not do it for me, it is way too complicated having to do the video and audio settings manually.

Once you set it up it keeps those settings

You can try convertxtodvd, nothing to set but use re-writeable discs as the trial watermarks the output

I just want to see if any programme will convert the files, in which case the problem is with Nero, not the PC

hi
sorry for taking so long, I tried ConvertX to DVD and the program stopped running after a few minutes. What does this mean?

Possibly points to the PC rather than the writing programmes

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.

This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
