Making a DVD Video using Nero 7 Premium
5 Attachment(s)
This is Nero Vision in Nero7 Premium. Different versions of Nero may have different options.

(Note: This guide has been made for people that do not care about advanced options, but only want to learn how to make a DVD using Nero 7, so they can watch it on Standalone DVD players)

First check what DVD disk formats the DVD Player will play. It will usually say so on the player itself. Look for DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RW etc. In case it does not say so on the player, you will find this info in the manual that came with the player, or try google in case you thrashed or lost it.

Tools used:
Nero 7 Premium (Trial version can be found at
DVD Burner is a must ;)
An empty DVD+R disk (I recommend using Verbatim disks, as they seem to be compatible with almost everything)
At least 5 GB of empty harddisk space. 10 GB would be better

First Open Nero StartSmart and you should get this screen:

After Nero Vision is open Follow these steps:

Attachment 3202

Where it says DVD in the lower right corner of the picture above, choose the kind you have. DVD is the normal 4.7GB DVDs. DVD-9 is the dual layer 8.5GB DVDs. These are more expensive, but if coding a long video for burning (eg. more than 2 hours) you will most likely get a better quality burn, because Nero won't have to worsen the quality to get the files to fit on the DVD.

If you have more than one file, add them in sequential order (eg. first CD1 then CD2 etc.) If the files have the same aspect ratio, you will be asked whether Nero should join the files to play as one. Choose depending on how you want the disk set up.

You can create chapters if you want, but it is not important. If happy with your choises press next and you get to the Menu setup screen. if you press "More" here you get the options below, which are really down to user preference, but I think you should know where they are.

Unless you want to make changes, just press next until it says Burn (You are welcome to set menu up differently etc. but this is not necessary, so I won't include it here). On that screen make sure Nero has chosen the right device (drive), choose the correct speed setting for your burn and name the Disk if desired.

Attachment 3208

Just put your empty DVD+R or DVD-R in the burner (Some DVD Players Have problems playing DVD-RW and DVD-R). Start the program (Press Burn) and leave it alone until finished.

It takes a while to convert+burn (approx 2 hours depending on how fast your computer is and the combined length of all video files added + your chosen setting (1 or 2-pass))

DO NOT run any other programs while making it. Nero Vision draws every drop of juice out of your processor while converting (100% CPU)

Hope this helps :)

Long play

i am just starting to use nero 7, and i was curious to find out can you not burn dvd's in long play, so you can fit more stuff on your 4.7gb dvd disk?

Hi i am new so forgive me if this is in the wrong place. You seem to know exactly what to do please help. I have a video it has no chapters to load to photobucket or such I can only have 5 minutes . how do i make movies from my movie?

I just brought the Nero 7 Ultra Edition today. I followed your instructions to the letter. How Come it takes so long to burn an AVI file. With Nero 6 it would take half the time that Nero 7 does. Is there a different more quicker way?????

Peerless June 28th, 2007 05:37 PM

interesting...I found it to be the opposite...and let's clarify some things:

you use the word burn, when you actually meant transcode...and that is pretty much totally dependent upon the speed of your cpu and the amount of ram you have...if you've got some sort of application running in the background that is sucking away resources that will indeed make a difference, as will continually surfing online or doing massive downloading...

I've got a 2.8GHz P4 OC'd to 3.01GHz with 2GB of takes on the average an hour to transcode and burn a typical .avi file and I burn @ 8x to make sure that it turns out good

anywho, I've got nothing but good things to say about Nero7, though to be specific I use the Ultra version...

Making a DV Video
Thanks for the info. I will try it. I am going to follow your suggestion about the Verbatum disks..........great tip. I didn't follow these instructions the first time, however. I do have the Nero 6, not 7 version. I hope that doesn't matter. The DVD I am trying to play is a downloaded movie. I will try to find out what DVD format my player uses. Thanks for all the great tips...........:xirokrotima::xirokrotima::xirokrot ima::xirokrotima::aweof::aweof::aweof:

Butting right in here...

May I suggest that you have a long slow peruse of Nero 7 before you give up on Nero 6.

Also, note that there has actually been another update for Nero 6... It's from end of March 2007... Grab it. Ooooh, and be sure to update the manual as well. The update only applies to the base program, not Vision Express.

Me, I am staying with ver 6 until there is a real change for the better in 7.

hope i'm not butting in here, but, i have nero 6, and find it leaves a wiggly line on bottom of screen on movies i burn. heard of others with same problem. i like dvd santa. full screen picture and there is a free download version that lasts indefinitely. i would also recommend getting a divex player for watching dvd,s, for about twenty bucks more, they play every kind of dvd and cd.:wasntme:
