    :)

    from the title, what you're really saying is that you want to burn your divx video onto a dvd.

    nero will do that. any burning software will :)

    If you are just wanting to backup the files onto a DVD, any program that can burn a "Data DVD" will work. Burning a data DVD is pretty much the same as backing up a bunch of files onto a CDR. You drag them all onto the window and hit burn.

    If you are looking to convert them so they can't be watched on a DVD player, that's a whole other matter though. But a plain backup is pretty simple.

    I use a Mac, but with Toast I just select "DVD-Video" and then drag all the .avi files onto the window (as many as can fit minute wise onto a DVD). It converts them and burns them as a video DVD that plays in my DVD player. I am sure Nero will do the same thing.

    Converting Divx to DVD can produce some pretty crappy looking files at times though. You are converting a lossy format to DVD, which just doesn't work well.
