DVD Burning

    Is there a comprehensive guide out there than explains DVD burning?

    I'm mainly trying to figure out how to conver .avi and .mpeg files to a format I can burn onto a DVD and play on a regulard DVD player (not my PC). Can anyone suggest a program for conversion? I use Nero for the actual burning. I'm sick of wasting DVDs!

    Your absolute best bet is to pick up a sub-$100 DVD/media player equipped to handle the Divx/Xvid formats. Converting avis and mpgs is a general pain in the ass.

    That way I just burn the .avi/.mpegs directly to the disc?

    If you have the full version of Nero, just use Nero Recode or Nero Vision. I use Vision to import MPEGs and make menued DVDs out of them. I think Nero Recode will convert an AVI to DVD-compatible, but I haven't used it for that.

    About how long does this take for a two-hour movie? I've used a free program for this a few times and it takes forever.

    5-10 minutes. Nero, and other programs like it such as Sonic DigitalMedia do this really easily.

    Putting one or two movies on a disc via conversion is a waste of space. Better off cramming five or six on a DVDR and let a machine like the one below handle the rest.
