How to make a DVD-video with a PCM sound track with Nero? Or, possibly, a DTS stound track. Thanks!

I have recorder a concert of classical music, and made a DVD. The compresssed mpeg sound track is significantly of less quality than the original recording. In shops, you can buy musical DVD's with PCM or DTS sound quality. How can I make such a DVD with Nero? Is is just impossible?Thanks

    Hi Laloe-

    You can't burn DTS audio with any version of Nero except for a copy operation. You can only decode DTS.

    Which version of Nero are you using?

    • I asked him what his version number was a day ago. I agree I should have elaborated on that when I made my comment. I thought about it later but, then the issue went away.

      To be correct, the DTS rules didn't become effective until the first update to v2016.

      The next time I boot my Win 7 system (It's been over a week), I might check 2019 out. However, you now have the Live Guide and the ability to submit issues so there's no need for me to ask anybody at Nero about it.
    • Wither 1,

      That'd be good. Maybe my system is not correctly installed. A little verification of the discrepancy would be helpful.

  • Thank you very much for your kind reply! I use Nero 2015.

    If Nero can't make a DTS audio track, can it then burn an uncompressed audio track (PCM)? It should be simple, since the idea is just not to leaves the audio track as it is, without compressing it. Commercial DVD's with classical music often have an uncompressed audio track.
    Thanks again!

  • I don't know why the quality suffers when you burn the DVD. I'd have to look it up but I think the standard audio format for a DVD is LPCM, as it is on an audio CD. Nero Video doesn't identify the default audio format. The default sampling rate in Nero Video is 48k. You can bump it up to 96k.

    If you want PCM, you could create your project in Nero Video and then, select Export, Export to File. Select mpeg-2. In the configuration settings, you can select LPCM for the audio format. After exporting to file, you could then import that file and continue on with burning your project. I don't know if it would be changed or not.

    It would probably be faster to first export the audio from the video to file as .wav (PCM) from Nero Video. Then, delete the audio file in the project and import the .wav file back into the project.

  • Marvellous!! To be honest, I had not find where to click to obtain this windows, which I had never seen. But your messages stimulated me and, eventually, I found this marvellous Recording Format Option windows. I am very grateful fo Wither and Omega Tester for the information. Many thanks!

    Yes, Wither, I think that the standard DVD has a compressed audio, while standard CD use uncompressed PCM. In my orhcestra recording, the compression sometimes resulted in some strange echo between the instruments. It was only occcasional and not a very strong effet, but sufficient to be noticed by the musicians. I always do the audio posprocessing with uncompressed files, often 96/24.
