In my experience, that is not the case (I have the latest full version
of Nero).  What has worked for me is mounting the dmg files with
Alcohol 120%'s virtual drive and "ripping" an ISO from that.

I haven't tried DVD Decrypter, but it might work as well, since it
is able to properly write Xbox ISO files, which Nero doesn't
