Thats the drop down menu that has what you state Infected.
Mine has the same as the picture also but i change it specifically for when I'm using Cd's or DVD's
i never leave it set to CD\DVD and I just checked and I'm using version 6.6.1

@infected???? -

i am not familiar with nero essentials, so i don't know what it can and can't do,
but i do have nero 7 ultra,

so, does your version have nero vision ? this is the application you will need to create your disks - not nero express

it seems that nero essentials cannot do the job,

i can suggest a few programs i use (other than nero), which are free - but it depends on what you want to do with the vid files and how they will be played,

or you could purchase nero (it has everything rolled into one)

yes, nero trial should do the job - but i think its a 30 day trial and if you have had it on before then its doubtful it will work,

what container format do you want the dvd's in (eg, vob,avi,divx, etc, vob for dvd-video, avi and divx are small files which will play on pc's, divx will play on a compatable dvd player)

Hello everyone

Just though i might say... ( Put in my 2 cents lol )

I play all my files on my TV from computer via a external hard drive media player ( Supports ALOT of different file extensions, EG: MPEG1/2/4, AVI (MPEG4, Xvid, AVC),DivX3.X-5.X, VOB, DAT, ASF, VCD, DVD )

.mp4 files are very small ( but bad in quality lol , abit of give and take :) )

You can pick these up @ around $220 AUD at ebay... ( i paid 240 for 1TB / 1,000GB , and not one complaint on any dollar )

All your data on one single volume , no need for cd / dvd these days... :)

If you have a DVD Player , you will more then likely be able to use these external media players ( just use's red , yellow and white plug )

Best of luck !
&
Happy Computing

where do you want to play them ?

do you have the .bup and .ifo files along with your .vob's, these will be needed for a dvd video that will play in most stand alone dvd players,

you may be able to convert the .vob's into an .iso and burn the .iso to disk using this program

http://cdburnerxp.se/

for the .avi's and .mp4's - these can be played on any pc, if the compatable codecs are installed (.avi and .mp4 are not codecs, they are container formats, the codec is needed to read what is inside the container)

just burn the .avi's and .mp4's to disk as data,

if you need them converting, then there is avi2dvd - http://www.trustfm.n...wareAvi2Dvd.php

for the .mp4's there is mediacoder - http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/

if you need any codecs, then there is klite - http://www.codecguide.com/

this may be of use as well, gspot - http://www.headbands.com/gspot/

please be aware that transcoding can take anywhere up to 1½ hours - maybe longer depending on cpu and ram
