DVD issue

Check for compatibility. The format of the disc can dictate its playability. By default, the Universal Disc Format (UDF) specifications of most burning programs are automatically set at UDF 1.5. However, UDF 1.5 cannot be read by all drives and players. By switching to UDF 1.02 you can make your discs readable across the board. Don’t panic, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. You can easily assign UDF values from a list or dropdown menu.

The question is when I set up the NERO burner, how do I set it to UDF 1.02 as stated above?

go to preferences / options.. that format "may" be available to you.

If you are looking to make a DVD transportable between many drives.. then use DVD-R, burn at the lowest speed.
