How to Burn DVD-Video Files in Nero StartSmart

Click on Burn DVD-Video Files in Nero StartSmart.
Nero Burning ROM will open.

Browse for your DVD-Video Files and highlight them on the right side in the File Browser window.

The video files must be saved on your hard drive in *.VOB, *.IFO, and *.BUP format.

(The standard structure of a complete DVD-Video project consists of these three file types).

Nero Burning ROM will not accept other file formats.

You will need at least three files to add:

1x *.VOB file

1x *.IFO file

1x *.BUP file

Otherwise your stand-alone DVD-player might not be able to recognize the burned DVD even if the video content is saved in the *.VOB file. Most stand-alone DVD-players search for the information which is stored in *.IFO and *.BUP files to playback the DVD correctly!

Add the files to the DVD-project (left compilation window) via drag and drop - make sure that you drag the files into the Video_TS folder of your compilation:

Click the (Burn) button to open the Burn Compilation window.
You have now numerous options to configure the DVD and set the burn settings (Label, ISO, Dates, Misc).

Refer to the Nero Burning ROM manual for further details.

Select the write speed and click Burn to start the burning process:

Follow the status of the writing process in this window:


  1. That is great.
    Is there a way to encoded dvd to mov with a codec or something? I am going to be trying installing Mac OS X and using virtalpc to run it.. emulate the os and do it that way but if some one knows a easier way of doing it I am all ears. QuickTime is not compatible with DVD, but compatible with mov, so how can i rip dvd to mov for mac use?

  2. obviously, nero StartSmart is a great dvd burn software. It is somehow too expensive I think. I will have a try if it lower it's price. try free keylogger

  3. There are many tools can help to creat dvds, including tons of freewares. However, the free software always only have the basic functions, poor services and video quality, such as Any Video Converter Free Version. it always not recommend, I have been using abettersoft to convert mov to dvd for enjoy on home dvd player long time, here is detailed

  4. Great work, in case you need any converter for you vob files then use this;
