Will Nero 8 work on Win 10? (I already own it) I have read elsewhere that Nero Vision in Nero 8 will convert .ave files to Mpeg4 so I can burn them to a blank DVD and play them in a DVD player, particularly the one built in my TV/DVD Combo. It will not play them straight up nor will it play them from a USB stick.

✔ Best Answer
I don't know but I've found Win 10 well able to run older software (even Office 2003) provided it is not 16 bit and you have a 64 bit machine. It wouldn't hurt to try it.

Having said that this freebie is quite versatile:

Not sure what it would make of ave files though.

Win 10 itself can handle drag and drop for CD/DVD-RW media.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Does your DVD player support .mp4? Most do not. You will have to convert your avi filesto DVD format.

It will depend on what type of player you have. A standard DVD uses the MPEG2 compression format, a Blu-Ray DVD uses the MP4 compression format, so unless your DVD player is capable of reading Blu-Ray discs you can't use MP4.

The proper way to burn a disc for DVD use is to master it as a DVD disc in your burning software. When you do this, it breaks the video files into 2 gig files and puts them in the VIDEO_TS folder on the DVD. All DVD players will be able to read this format.

No Nero 8 will not run on Win 10. After trying it, I looked up when I purchased the program and was astonished to find out it was 2008.

I will now try Derek's CDburnerxp.

I apologize to the members for wasting your time when I should have known the age of the program.

Not wasting our time one bit, like I said I've run even older stuff than that.
The main thing is you popped back - so many folk are never seen again after the initial post.
