    i have a new computer with a dvd-rw drive on it and i was wondering if anyone knows how to burn a file (gangs of new york) onto a disc. i have the blank dvd's but the software that came with my computer only allows burning of digital video from a camcorder or another similar device, please help.

    I spent hours looking over the complex guides for that program. I did end up getting it to work, but I wasn't happy so I never bought the full version or used it again.

    What type of file are you starting with (DivX, Xvid, MPEG)? What programs do you have to work with (or are you looking for a suite of freeware to use (also possible))?
    People here will be happy to point you to an appropriate guide, but you haven't provided enough information for us to help.

    sandro- Actually I've given up on creating my own discs on the computer right now. I tried out a stand alone DVD recorder (DVD VCR) and loved it. I've since ordered one; I should have it in a couple of weeks.

    Since most of the DVD's I'm creating are from analogue sources anyways, the Panasonic stand alone does an awesome job of creating the discs. One thing it does that a computer can't; it passes the video through a 3 line digital comb filter; therefore cleaning up any anomolies.

    I was skeptical that any device could make an analogue to digital conversion and actually increase the quality. And I'm all about keeping the quality. :)
