Selecting chapters directly from remote unavailble on burned dvd

i have nero15 platinum on win7.
I created a dvd movie imported videos, edited them, went to create chapter page added chapters for each video, went to menu edit, checked advanced deleted all extra title screens down to one changed BG and created new text only buttons, linked all chapters (about ten) to their perspective locations, no navigation buttons needed.
Go to preview then burn page check enable forward and backward jumping. Burn the dvd (which burns nicely)
...everything plays fine in dvd player, im able to select chapters from the menu, but during playback of movie if i press 2 on remote control to skip to chapter 2 it gives an unable to do operation.
Next and previous work fine, but there doesnt seem to be chapters. If i go to program dvd to repeat, i can only loop the title1 (entire movie) no individual chapters are showing to select.
Did i miss something in my settings or is there something i need to get to do this. I had no issues doing exactly this withNero 9 on my old xp.

  • Did you select a Titles and Chapters menu or Titles only?

  • thanx for quick responce...

    on the edit menu page correct? yes i have Titles and Chapters menus selected.

    I then click the customize tab, and check the advanced editing option. once i check the advanced editing it grays out and cannot be unselected again. is that supposed to happen?

  • Yes, that's the way it works. Once you select the Advanced settings, most of the Customize options are no longer available so you should do all your customization before selecting the Advanced settings.

    If you have a Titles and Chapters menu and you want to select chapters which you've created buttons for, then you should use the "jump to menu" option in the Disc/project area. Elsewise, you can only use the forwards\backwards (or whatever works on your remote) to go to the next chapter.

    Does that help?

  • i have that set.... first play set to: "MENU" Title menu set to: "MAIN MENU" End Action set to: "JUMP TO MENU" ...additional folder is grayed out and is set to nothing. and it stll burned the disc with the chapters not being able to select with the number keys on the remote.

    I rebuilt it and Im going to try and burn it again to see if it was something on my end, but this problem has been going on with the past few disc ive burned and ive been building them the same way each time. I will let you know if the problem still exist when either tonight or in morning.
    thanx

  • I don't think you can select chapters using their number from a remote. Chapters are just place markers for forward and back controls (the control varies with the remote). As far as I know, you can only select them by number from the Chapters menu which you can access when you jump to the main menu. When I read your original post, it sounded normal in regards to going from chapter to chapter but I needed more information to see what you wanted.

  • you can select chapters with the # keys during playback, ive burned dozens of dvds with nero and it worked fine until recently. I dont have any new software downloaded that couldve conflicted with nero burning properly, i guess its possible windows could have updated something that made a conflict but i have no clue what...but it did work before.

    I re-burned the disc and it still gave an "operation not possible" when i tried to select the chapter # during playback. so I opened the dvd in pgcedit and when I click edit the PGC it has "prohibited user operations" set on, once I set that back to "0 prohibited user operations" and burn disc, it works properly. Where during playing of the dvd I can select #12, & click enter to goto chapter 12. Ive burned dozens of dvds before with this option being being available without having to do anything special with nero. (when a dvd has lots of chapters it helps to skip to later chapters without constantly hitting next,next,next,next)

    Now my question is what happened that prohibited user operations are set on when making a dvd with nero. Is there a setting somewhere I missed? Something I have to change/update with nero or windows? My win7 is completely up to date as is all my firmware for graphics & ect. Hell i even did a chkdsk and reviewed win error/event logs to see if something happened there, im lost.

  • Thanks for enlightening me. I have burned DVD-Videos to help people with problems but I don't play them (I burn to RW discs and my player needs an R type).

    In addition, people mention various programs that I've never heard of and I have to go looking just to be somewhat knowledgeable.

    I think you need to send an e-mail to techsupport@nero.com. I don't have time to test all this stuff and I'm unaware of any settings in Nero that could obviate this problem. Let us know what they have to say. The only thing I could do is look at the burn log to see if there's something there.

  • well thanx for trying anyway. Ive been going crazy trying to figure out what happened, thats what made me try pgcedit to see whats what. Its either a setting i changed somewhere or something windows updated or some kind of conflict/corruption of my nero installation i dunno...i will try techsupport to see what they say
    thanx again

  • Let us know what tech support has to say. I don't think you have a corruped Nero installation. I don't even have an option to select much with the Magic remote that came with my LG SmartTv (which is dumber than nails). I happened to buy the LG audio bar and the remote that came with that does have buttons for selecting tracks if one is playing a CD (I don't know if it applies to DVDs). I think the manufacturers are doing everyone a disfavor with this shit.
