Hi, i'm new, so I hope I give all the details needed.
I have a Windows XP window with Ultra Video Splitter and Nero 9.
For years I have been burning DVD's with .avi and .divx files with no problems playing them on either of my two stand alone dvd players.
I now have a Windows Vista PC with Ultra Video Splitter and Nero 12. I've set it up the same, as far as I am aware but when I burn a DVD, one of my dvd players only recognises some of the files on the disc, whereas the other one still recognises all of them - they are ell encoded the same.
When I burn a CD with these files on, the DVD player that doesn't recognise them on DVD, recognises them on the CD.
Any ideas as to what could be wrong and how I could change it?
Thanks for any help.

I'm moving you because this is not any ripping issue.
So you are just burning the dvd in data mode? THen try something else than nero. Like imgburn. Choose write folder/files to a disc and add your avi and divx files.
Or are you converting to dvd-video with ultra video splitter? (a VIDEO_TS folder with vob file)
Lots of things could be causing this. We don't really have enough information to do more than guess, so you're going to have to do some work on your end to figure out what it is.
1) You're not using the same media as your previous burns and your player doesn't like your current media. It happens. You should be aware that only Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden make reliable media these days and everybody else makes crap. Well, some Sony discs may be OK or they may be crap, but Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden consistently make good media. However, do avoid Verbatim's "Life" series of discs as those are also crap. Everything else they make is good.
2) You burned the discs at a higher speed than before and your bad quality media is causing problems for your player.
3) Nero 12 is defaulting to multi-session burn or you are deliberately choosing to do multi-session burns. You should NEVER do a multi-session burn on a disc you intend to play in a standalone player of any type. Most standalones will only recognize one session of a multi-session burn. With some it's the first. With others it's the last. A few do recognize all sessions, but this is not common. This would explain your experience. Maybe you are doing multi-session burns on DVD, either deliberately or unknowningly, and not doing that on CDs. Nero has a lot of stupid defaults and older versions of Nero often defaulted to turning on multi-session burning.
Those are what I can think of. Look into #3 especially.
Thanks for moving this, Baldrick, sorry for putting it in the wrong place.
I am converting to .avi and .divx using Ultra Video Splitter - from MP4 and WMV etc - I don't believe this is the issue as i've succeeded at it for years.
I will try imgburn - I've tried using CdBurnerXP (wouldn't let me add files) - I will try imgburn
1. I'm using the same blank media - JC Gold Top DVD+R - i've been told these are decent?
2. I'll check the burn speed - I believe I set it to 6x.
3. I finalized the discs - I'm sure it's not that, but again, I will check and see what happens.
Thanks for your replies - I will check out imgburn now.
....when are you going to tell us what type of disc your player accepts? - what type of disc you are trying to burn?
Imgburn has worked - thanks for the suggestion - I knew it wasn't the DVD's or files and as suggested, it was the burning program.
Thanks again, relief is what I am feeling right now and alot of appreciation.
