get yourself a dvd convertor like WinDVD.

basically converts your .wmv, .mpegs n .avi's to dvd formats. takes a while though.

then just burn what youve converted to DVD

Are they zipped up ? They usually are then need unzipping first . Then use winavi dvd convertor to re-encode them back to dvd ( vob ) files , nero 6 to burn them to dvd and off ya go :).

Or dvd santa to re-encode and burn all in one .

ya got hold of nero vision express, nero will do it all for ya, just select the avi or mpeg file and let nero do the rest, takes around 45mins to up to 2 hours to encode and burn depending on computer speed memory etc.

^^^^ Thats why winavi video convertors better . About 40 - 50 mins to encode , 10mins ish to burn , job done ;)

winavi converter all the way - two buttons, one to convert to dvd format, one to burn it! Simple and effective!

Nero's good as you can just convert and burn easy enough, or you can easily add a menu and chapters menus, backgrounds music etc too. Its good, Sam
