if your dvd-r will not play in your stand-alone player when burned with nero, this is because your stand alone supports UDF1.02.
when you burn a dvd with nero using DVD VIDEO ,settings nero burns the disc in UDF 1.05.
most players especially new models support this.........but some older players do not.hence when you put the disc in your player you get "disc error" or something similar, but if you put the disc in, say your friends player it plays good.
follow these steps.
1/ make sure all your movie files are in a folder called VIDEO_TS (must be caps).
2/ open nero, click close wizard.
3/ in the new compilation choose dvd (obviously)
4/ instead of choosing DVD VIDEO, choose DVD-ROM (UDF)
5/ all settings should be ok at default, but if not, make sure no multisession is ticked, and UDF1.02 is selected as a physical partition.
6/ click new, locate your VIDEO_TS folder with the movie you want to burn.drag and drop into the burn box on the left, then click burn.
7/ when finished enjoy in you stand alone for the first time.
hope this helps the masses with this problem.
i personally burn all movies like this because then all dvd's play in ALL standalones.if a stand alone uses UDF1.05 it will also play UDF1.02.
but not the other way around.
P.S ALL this refers to using nero version 188.8.131.52 the newest version, untested on older versions but it will probably still be the same

Do I also drag the audio file into nero as well? You didn't make mention of this. I read somewhere that the audio folder must also be present for the burn to be successful. What do you do?
I have original dvds without the audio_ts folder...but it is maybe best to include it.
Just wanted to second headstate's guide, I always do this and I have had no problems with DVDs burned by Nero doing this.
Audio_TS folder is not needed but as Baldrick says it's always worth including just incase. Afterall it only takes a couple of seconds to create an empty one.
This is a great way !
now i can see my DVD+R/RW -+R/RW in my stand alone DVD
thank you very much!
Does it work good with udf/iso mode using udf 1.02 also?
I tried it once and it was fine. That was on a -rw.
You are good.
There are many posts that new DVDR burner owner can't make their DVD-R disc to play. This have to be it.
That works great!
If this realy works (I believe you ), it should be posted as guide. It will be very helpful.
nero should correct the problem at the source.....
I don't know of any reason to author discs with 1.05
Thanks for the post! However, when I tried this method with Nero 184.108.40.206 and a Sony dvd+rw, using a Sony DRU500a my Apex 600a still won't identify the disk as "valid."
In another thread I saw that to get the Apex to use a RW disk you have to change the bitsetting. Does burning at UDF 1.02 address that?
Good work, in any case.
i'm glad this is solving the problems with everybody using nero.
vob instant cd/dvd and prassi primo dvd, all burn using UDF1.02.so it speaks for itself, nero have got it wrong.nobody ever has problems with these software, just nero!!
if you burn the way described your basically burning the same way as instand cd/dvd and primo dvd.
when you burn the movie using DVD-ROM (udf) setting,it burns it the exact same way as the DVD-VIDEO setting apart from
nero burns using udf1.02 instead of 1.05.
and there's nothing special about the dvd-video setting in nero, it's just called that because the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders are already made up for you.
its not!!! work on xbox and Powerbook g4 TITANIUM if i burn with prassi its play on xbox.. mac.. and stand-alone...
well the VOB instent CD/DVD recognize my Sony DRU500 as a CD-R and not DVD-R!
I follow your step in Nero while creating my own DVD's and its not working on a stand alone player

there will always be an exeption, this will not work 100% of the time.
if your old ninatus plays discs fine with nero with the dvd-video setting (udf1.05) then that is the most compliant format for you and one you should stick with if all is good.
burning using udf1.02 is for the people who's stand alone will not play discs using dvd-video udf1.05 settings.
in my experience if dvd-video udf1.05 will not play, burn udf1.02 and it will.
Radioman (and others):
I remember a thread here a while back discussing burning with Nero "manually" (so it wouldn't check to make sure things are correct) and it was said that "UDF/ISO" was the correct format to choose.
Hello all. I have been reading this thread and I have noticed that that this method of burning in UDF 1.02 has been working for some people.
However this is not the case for me. I Have a Sony DRU 500A to burn, and A JVC XV-D701 player. I ripped a DVD in DVD Decrypter, and Stripped in IFOEdit. Here is the problem I am having:
1. When I try to burn this using a DVD+R it fails and says "Cannot Perform End Of Disc-At-Once", and it fails.
2. When I try to burn this using a DVD-R it does not fail, but it doesn't play in my DVD Player (I am using 1.02 like you said).
I have created the AUDIO_TS file also?
I have tried this topic in the Digital-Digest forum, but not much success.
If anyone has any ideas please reply!
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I am using the new Nero 220.127.116.11
I have tried Nero UDF/ISO 1.02 and DVD video, and it only plays on my Apex (not my other two DVD players).
Been trying (one or two discs per version) since March!!
Stomp and VOB both work...
Stomp gives me no problems with all THREE DVD players, so I am sticking with that, until Nero fixes the problem once and for all.
I just performed the exact steps that you mentioned. The DVD -R burned and played fine on my computer DVD -R/RW, Cendyne DVR-104. However, it will not play on ANY DVD I have tried, computer DVD-ROM or Standalone. I used Nero ver 18.104.22.168 OEM. Any Help?
can this be applied to vcd's(xvcd etc....)? the burning method offeredhere ?obviously-except for making the necessary selection for vcd?
I am suprised to see anybody having problems with discs playing if burned in 1.02. I started burning this way right after this thread started and have had great luck so far. My original burns would only play in my sony dvpns715 stand alone(in my opinion the greatest player out there) but wouldn't play in my Toshiba sd1600(roughly 3-4 yr old player) or my dads Magnavox dvd611(el crapo). Now burning in udf 1.02 mode, the discs will play in all these players, perfectly. I guess it depends on the individual and their player. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
In Studio 8, I generated the files in order to burn a DVD. *.VBO/*.IFO/*.BUP. From there, using Studio 8, I burnt a DVD. Now it plays on my computer DVD-ROM, however, will not play on my three different home standalone, except, for my Panasonic Portable DVD player. So, since I had the files listed above, I went to Nero to see if the procedure would work. RUT ROH! Back to my origingal configuration where it doesn't work whatsoever on any of my four DVD players except for my DVD -R/RW. Am I getting wrapped around the axle? Do I need a different software program? Maestro? DVD Encryptor?
All I want to do is to take my VHS/8mm video and burn them to DVD. I have read VCD Help but I guess I am too much of a layman.
I have been pursuing issues with Nero with a friend who has a DVD burner as well. He created a DVD-RW using the new procedures to specify the 1.02 file system. It plays in his DVD players but will not play in a recently purchased Pioneer DV-250 stand alone player I have. This player will not play disks create by Nero. I have an older GE 1101p (something like that, a renamed Shinco model equivalent to an Apex) that will would play disks the Pioneer will not.
I took the disk he created with Nero, copied the files to my computer, used the image tool to create an image. Burned the image back to the DVD-RW and it plays beautifully on my Pioneer. One thing I have observed about Nero is that it insists on changing the order of the files on the disk.
For example, the original order is (I don't have the exact names):
Nero insists on placing them on the DVD-RW as:
The image creation program ordered the files the same as the original and it works. Could this be why Nero is compatible as well? Only certain players seem picky about the layout.

As far as the Apex stand-alone, when we got our first DVD player 1 1/2 yrs ago (late catching up I guess) we got an Apex. It had limited capabilities playing the menus of Commercial DVD's, and sometimes wouldn't play the movie at all! We exchanged it for another one, and it had the same problem. We finally traded it up for a Samsung for about $20USD more. It worked with no problems (however it did not support VCD's or any DVD-R or DVD+R format). I now have a GE DGN1000? and it works great with all (the same price I originally payed for the Apex).
I hope this can be useful for someone considering a new stand-alone or choosing a good disc.
BTW- I have had great success with Memorex and Verbatim DVD+R/RW's and have also had good luck with some blank DVD+Rs I bought at a MarketPro Computer Show (the dealer is local to me also).
I too tried burning with nero using the 1.02 setting.
Played back perfect in my cyberhome,but wouldn't play on a Tosh/Samsung...
So ripped the dvd using dvd decrypter and recorded the disc using VOB
with the setting 1.02(not changing anything) And it plays on all the dvd players.Bottom line Nero for me sucks at recording dvds
