Audio Codec difference preventing joining files


New member
I want to join two files to create one film on DVD (part of the one program recorded by two different machines). However, when I try to join I get the following message:-

Current joiner uses audio codec: MPEG and a sample rate: 48000.
Video being added has an audio codec: AC3 and a sample rate: 48000.
Audio parameters must be the same when joining.

How can I change one of the codecs and which should I do the AC3 is on a file that is only about 2% of the full film.

Thanks for your assistance.

In the file save dialog box, click the Options button and choose MPEG audio.

Thanks for your help Pat, have tried and it has worked a treat.
In the past I have only dealt with one source file so the defaults (whatever format they were took care of themselves).
In this case I recorded the major portion of the program on the PC, but because my Nero 7 takes some time to program, I used a VCR to record the start of the program and then attempt to join the two parts together.
Actualy I am not very happy with Nero at present I find that it causes the software then the PC to lockup and needs to be rebooted.
Thanks again for your speedy reply.
Cheers and a Happy New Year, Peter Stacey.
