I’m undecided

Importing Music Video

I have a four-disc set of a recording artist, the last disc being a DVD. How can either Nero Home Media or Nero Express import this to a file in My Computer? The original disc has two files, AUDIO_TS, which is not compatible with the blank DVD. I can add the other file, VIDEO_TS, to Nero Express. Earlier, I just copied the original to a blank DVD, without testing to be sure I have the entire content of the original. How should I have done this? I did not see an option to import the content as I did with the CD's.

  • Audio CD's can be saved to your hard drive by using Burning Rom. Open it and select New. In the Extras tab, select "save tracks to hard drive". It will prompt your to insert the CD. You can change the output format, etc. before saving.

    Audio_TS folders are normally empty if the disc is a DVD-Video. You can copy a DVD to your hard drive as an image file in either Nero Express or Burning Rom using the Copy function.

    You can copy the Video_TS file from a DVD-Video disc to your hard drive using Windows Explorer.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're after. Perhaps you can elaborate.

    The last disc in the set is a music video, which I wanted to import to my Music folder. Through either Nero Express or Nero Home Media I did not see the option to do it in contrast to the music CD's I just burned.

    Well, if I understand you right, you want to convert the DVD-Video also to an mp3 audio file.

    As long as the DVD isn't copy protected, you can do this very easily. But when having Nero 10 you have to do a little workaround. You should first transcode the main movie of the DVD to Nero Digital with Nero Recode.



    1. In the settings screen choose "Nero Digital AVC" as profile.
    2. Since you only need the audio track, the picture quality doesn't matter, so choose "Fast (1-pass)" as encoding method. (If you don't want to convert the video to audio later, you should use "High Quality (2-pass)" here!)
    3. Change to the "Audio #1" tab.
    4. Make sure "AAC" is set as codec.
    5. Press the "Settings..." button.
    6. Change the settings to "User defined"
    7. Set the channels to "Stereo" (if they are 5.1)
    8. Choose "Low Complexity" as mode (High Efficiency is only needed for low bit rates)
    9. Set the bit rate to at least 192 kbit/s to ensure CD-like quality.
    (10. This step is optional: If the DVD has a Dolby Digital audio track, the encoded file can have a very low volume later. You can fix this by setting this option to "Loud". I wouldn't recommend to set it to "Very loud" because the audio can be distorted sometimes.)



    Now press the "Next" button to continue to the burn options.
    1. Choose "Hard Disk Folder" as destination.
    2. Browse to the folder you want to save your output file to.
    3. Click on "Burn" and let Nero Recode do its job.



    Now you should have your video as an mp4-file on your PC. Open Nero Burning ROM and cancel the "New Compilation" screen.

    In the menu at the top of the window go to "Extras" --> "Encode files..." (or press F8 instead). A new window with an empty list will open, where you can easily drag your mp4 file into.

    Now choose your preferred output format (mp3) and change the settings as you wish. At last click on "Go" and Nero will convert your video to an audio file, which you can put into your Music folder.

  • I have to boot to a different hard drive to use v10 but the reason I asked if he had Nero Video or Nero Vision was for doing this a little differently.

    In Advanced Editing of Nero Vision, he could import the vts.................. file from the DVD, unlink the audio from the video, and export the audio to .wav. He could then open the .wav in WaveEditor and save it as a .mp3.

    Either way would work.

  • You're right, but the thing is, that wave audio isn't really efficient when it comes to store music on a hard drive. You'll have to convert the wav-file to mp3. Because of this I provided my solution to save a bit of time. :)

    Due to too much fun activity this past weekend, I regrettably have not yet implemented the above suggestions. However, I'd better restate the problem so there is no further misunderstanding. My library loaned me a four disc set, three CD's and one DVD. Thanks to past threads here I was able to burn the CD's. The fourth was the first music video I ever had to burn. So, on the first three there was no problem importing the music content to My Computer, Music folder. The video under Nero Home Media did not show the same option for loading that type of disc. So, I was not sure how to burn this DVD in the same way I burned the CD's, by importing and then burning. From my prior reading, mp3 files are strictly audio. So, conversion to mp3 would not capture the video, which could possibly have a file extension of mp4. Would those instructions of Mister_M still apply?

    I think if you follow Mister_M 's instructions and stop at the .mp4 stage, you will have your music video Louis.

  • My understanding was that you just wanted the audio from the DVD.

    Upon rereading your original post, if all you want to do is transfer the contents of the DVD to your hard drive, all you have to do is copy the Video_TS folder using Windows Explorer. You can then burn that to another another DVD in either Nero Express or Burning Rom.

    Perhaps we need further clarification.

  • Today I just tested my burned dics copy in my DVD Player and in my computer. The original is an interview with concert footage afterward. In the DVD Player it quits when the concert begins. Both WMP and Nero Home Media did not play through the interview, but got to a point where they could no longer read it. Media Player Lite would not play it at all. So, I wasted a disc doing the direct copy and will have to do it again. Fortunately I loaded the content into my Music folder.

  • Let me understand this. Is the contents of the original DVD a Video_TS folder? Perhaps you could provide a screen shot of it's contents.

  • I just imported it with Mister_M's instructions above. Could you instruct how to include a screen shot. I just made one in my Pictures folder. Also, I thought the "Go" button began the burning process; but nothing is going on.

    I just hit the "Go" button again and don't think the file is burning to the blank DVD, although the second time it asked if I wanted to rewrite over it. There is nothing on it that plays.

    Good news fellow friends of Nero! I just successfully burned the DVD of Roy Haynes. The burned disc just played in my DVD player to which I just listened and watched on my TV. My method was to open up Nero Home Media, highlight the file and click on the Burn button in the lower right. There probably are some technical options hidden with this method, for example lowering the burning speed. Chances are it works in the computer too. If you know of a more precise method for doing this task, you are welcome to share. The site http://en.kioskea.net did not seem to provide as precise answers as the Nero forum. Thanks to all for a good team effort.

  • That's great but I still can't see what's on the disc so I can't give you a better method, if there is one. You would need to insert the disc into the drive and then double click on the drive with Windows Explorer.

  • Well, I still don't think I'll get you right. Do you want the whole four audio discs and the DVD-Video to be playable as one disc on any stand alone DVD player?

    Then you'll have to author the audio CDs and the DVD-Video to one new disc.

    1. This can be done with Nero Video (NV). But at first you'll have to rip the audio CDs to *.wav (lossless) with Nero Burning ROM (NBR). Open NBR and cancel the "New Compilation" window. Insert your audio CD into your drive. Now choose "Extras" -> "Save Audio Tracks..." in the menu at the top of the screen (or press F9). Your disc will be recognized now.

    Jump to the "Output" tab and choose "Wave (*.wav)" as file format. Now rip your audio CDs to your hard drive.

    2. Next you should rip your DVD-Video to your hard drive with Nero Recode (NR). Import your DVD there and choose "DVD" as device.

    As target you should choose "Save to hard drive" and set the output path to where you want to store the DVD folder.
    Make sure that you only rip the main move, by unchecking the "Menus" and "Extras". You also should check, if your favorate language / audio track is chosen (Nero Video only supports encoding of one audio track).


    Now save the movie to your hard drive.

    3. Now you can open Nero Video. At first you'll have to author your saved audio tracks to a video. Therefor you should choose the "Make Advanced Movie" option in the "Edit" field. Choose "TV Standard" (4:3) or "TV Widescreen" (16:9) (that depends on the video format of your original DVD-Video). Set the TV type either to PAL or NTSC (also depending on your original DVD-Video) and continue.

    The editing window opens. Now import all of your saved audio tracks into NV. I would create one movie per audio CD (3 movies). Just drag & drop each song one after another into the time line. You should separate the songs with chapter marks. Just set the red time slider (normally it automatically jumps to the point, where you inserted the new audio track) to the beginning of the new audio track. Now right-click on the empty area above the slider and choose "Set Chapter Marker" from the menu.

    Repeat that with all tracks of the first audio CD. If you don't want to have a black video, you can also drag photos into the video 1 timeline. Now press the "Next" button. On the following screen choose "Create a Disc" -> "DVD" -> "DVD-Video".

    The project window opens. To get the other audio CDs also to the list, press the "Make" button in the upper right corner and choose "Movie". Now follow the steps from step 3 and repeat this procedure until you have imported all your "audio CD" videos.

    After you have imported the last "audio CD" video into your project list, stay at that screen. Because now you still have to import your DVD-Video. Therefor press the "Import" button in the upper right corner of the screen and choose "Import Files...". Now head to the VIDEO_TS folder you stored your DVD into in step 2, select the *.vob files and import your movie. Since there's no chapter recognition in the import function, you'll have to set the chapter marks by yourself. Set the time slider under the preview screen on the position you want the new chapter to start and press the "movie clap board" button and select "Add Chapter".


    Now you've imported all CDs and the DVD-movie to your project. Click on "Next" to proceed to the menu editing. Just choose or create your preferred menu there and click again on the "Next" button. Now you can preview your DVD-project. If you now click on "Next" you'll get to the burning options screen.

    Set your preferred options and press the "Burn" button. Your project will now be burnt to a DVD-Video, which will be playable in any stand alone DVD player.

  • Now with Nero 10!

    1. The steps to rip the music stay the same. No changes here.

    2. Open Nero Recode and select "Recode Main Movie to DVD" and import your DVD there. In the "Audio" tab choose your favorite language / audio track and press the "Next" button. In the following screen choose "Hard Disc Folder" as Destination and choose your Target folder. Activate the "Advanced Analysis" and "High quality mode" to ensure a good picture quality.

    3. Open Nero Vision Xtra (NVX) and choose "Make Movie or Slide Show". Set the film options like in step 3 of the Nero 2014 tutorial and go on. In the editing window there are no changes. Just follow the steps from the last tutorial.
    When you click on "Next" you will be redirected to the main window. Choose "Make DVD with Edited Movie..." -> "DVD-Video". The other steps didn't change. Just follow them in the tutorial for Nero 2014.

  • If all he wanted to do was burn the contents of the fourth DVD to another DVD, he should be able to select DVD-Video in either Nero Express or Burning Rom, import the Video_TS folder and burn. I'm not sure what the original difficulties are all about.

    The original difficulties with the fourth disc in the series, the DVD, was that I made a 1:1 copy, as was subsequently suggested in this forum. It did not work, WMP and Nero Home Media having detected portions they could not read. Media Player Lite would not play it at all. When I arrived at the solution yesterday, all three players, and my home DVD player, were able to play the disc.

    Thanks for the instructions. I think I will be able to burn these discs in the future. I burned each disc directly onto another blank corresponding disc, not wanting to combine discs, not knowing the capacity of each blank disc.

    My last post was based on the screenshot which you provided which showed that the DVD is a standard DVD-Video. There is no reason was a 1:1 copy of this disc did not work.

    I stated previously that the 1:1 did not play at all in Media Player Lite. The sound and picture broke up in both WMP and Nero Home Media at the start of the concert portion. However, the more sophisticated method worked in all three players. That will be the method I will use to burn DVD's from now on.
