Having trouble burning a data dvd with Nero

Hi, impossible to search for wmv or dvd here due to word length, so if someone has had this problem and knows what to search for, we can close this puppy


I am trying to burn a 4.1 GB wmv file to a DVD using Nero 6. All signs point to a successful burn and when the properties are selected on the disc itself it shows the correct file size. When I select the properties on the wmv file itself, it says it is only 112MB. The file only plays 112MB and then stops.

I even tried to burn an image and then loaded the image in a virtual drive and the same thing happens.

Any reasons to cause this? I am running XP Home SP2 and Nero 6.

Thanks

Use the wildcard *
wmv*
dvd*
( I searched the tech forum and didn't find any threads)

For XP SP2, you should have Nero Version 6.3.120 at a miniumun
Other that those tidbits, I can't help you out since I don't burn DVD's

You may need to convert it first: Try videohelp.com

Figured it out. Updated Nero to 6.6 and used UDF format for burning the data since the file was over 2GB.


Thanks!
