    Hi, i have a movie on my computer, but the problem is that when i burn it to a dvd or play it on wmp, i have the huge black bits at the top and bottom which make the film look small.
    Is there a way so that I can get rid of these so i view it in full picture?

    Regards, Sam.

    It sounds like you are viewing a letterboxed movie.
    To view a widescreen (16:9) movie on a traditional(4:3) TV, the film is displayed inside a 'letterbox' (North American usage).

    Nero Vision, et al, allow the 4:3 or 16:9 TV settings to be changed to suit your set.
