I have a DVD box set that I ripped to my computer. I'd like to start putting some episodes on my iPod to watch on the go. I've tried the ImTOO programs and Videora. I also tried WinAVI MP4 converter. Someone told me to try Nero Recode so I downloaded a trial.
The problem is that after the video is converted it cuts off the first 5-10 minutes of the episode.
This is what I'm doing (I think it's right):
Recode DVDs and Videos to Nero Digital
Import Files >> Title 1
(If I hit play. It plays the entire thing)
Set digital profile to "mobile"
Tell it to pass twice
Am I doing anything wrong? Should I be using another program instead?
Thanks a lot,

SleepJunkie, I've had this same problem and I THINK I've found a way around this, at least on my system. Here's what I do:
o Disable ALL unneccessary programs running in the background, including anti-virus, firewalls, etc. The computer I do my recoding on is on dialup, so these disablings don't leave me vulnerable.
o Do NOT access Recode via StartSmart. Access it directly.
o Do a 2-pass encoding.
o Turn OFF the monitor. This makes no sense to me, but seems to be the final piece of the puzzle--on my system. I've wondered if somehow the Energy Star features of the monitor and the BIOS implementation of monitor shutdown/sleep status might not be a culprit.
If I do ALL of these, I avoid the problem you describe. I usually set up Recode for auto-shutdown, start the process, and go to bed and let my PC chug away to success.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
