I've finished converting a file to DVD format

All i need to do now is to make dvd menu so that I can select the episode I want to pay when the DVD plays on the dvd player

I can't see this option anywhere in Nero Burning Rom V7.5.1

Can anyone please help?

You need a DVD authoring program like Nerovision, (altho u may need a serial plugin for the DVD option), or some Ulead program.

Or some other program.

Nero dose it as part of the process of burning a DVD.

Problem is Nero can't do it

I just put it in the DVD player and i have to click fastforward and wait for it to fastforward 45 minutes before I can watch episode 2

I can Convert RMVB to DVd easily but 4 episodes are on the same DVD

I want to be able to select the episode I want to play when I put the DVD in.

I don't want to wait 5 minutes while it fastforwards for 150+ minutes before I can watch the 4th epsiode

Nero Vision allows you to select 1 Video File or Files so I can't choose the entire folder

I had to use WinAvi to convert RMVB to MPEG2 then drag each MPEg2 file into Nero Vision.I then click next to choose a menu temple.After choosing the menu template I click next.Nero Vision will thenconvert Mpeg2 back to DVD format .This is ok and i can select the episode but I have problems such as the Menu flickering on the screen but the episodes are fine

I want to find a shorter way without converting 2 formats inorder to create a menu and make the DVD

Cos it takes 1 hour to convert Mpeg back to DVd using nero vision and 10 minutes to convert each episode from rmvb to mpeg2

As Speedy says Nerovision can do it - not Nero burning rom, they are different. Another programme I use is TMPGenc but nero is better.

Download a trial copy of Ulead Movie Factory 4.
It's very easy to use and has a lot of features. You can even make motion backgrounds for the dvd menu. Comes with quite a few templates as well.
Give it a try. You wont be disapointed.

Just for the record, NeroVision (back in the days of Nero 6) was part of Aheads second "download pack". Its simply included in Nero7 as an optional installation component.
Ive used Sony DVD Architect once or twice, beautiful little piece of software it is :D

This is an example from Nero 7

This is the main screen (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/step1.jpg)

Then this (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/step2.jpg)

Then this (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/step3.jpg)

Then this (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/step4.jpg)

Then this (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/step5.jpg)

And if u have more than 1 video you would do this (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/step6.jpg)

If you want a simple, and plain menu, I recommend ConvertXtoDVD (http://www.vso-software.fr/products/convert_x_to_dvd/)

Nero Vision doesn't support RMVB cos all my episodes are in that format.I have to conver it to MPEG2 so it doesn't lose quality and then I use the same method given by speed_gonzales to do the convert from mpeg2-->dvd after choosing the menu

Realmedia isnt a popular format thats why.

And I doubt many programs would convert this format to DVD format. Unless u pay for it. Where did u get these from anyway. I take it, you've downloaded them. Someone needs to tell whoever to change them to a better format. So, its easier or more compat with DVD burning programs.

And how good is the quality of RMVB files? I dont think converting them to MPEG2 will make any diff if the pic quality is crap already.
