    If you want to make a VCD, you have to use a CD disc, not a DVD disc.

    If you have the capability in that version to burn DVDs, pick DVD video and use NeroVision to load the file and make a DVD. If you use StartSmart, you can see different selections which will open utilities for doing those tasks. If you are wanting to burn an .avi file as a DVD video, choose "Make a Movie". If you want to burn a VCD or Super VCD, choose those. Help files are available on the Nero Site.

    If you want to burn your AVI files to a DVD then I would recommend using NeroVision, it will do the necessary conversions. Mine normally take from between 1and a half to 2 hours. Heres a basic guide on how I burn mine, theres a more comprehensive guide, by alkohol, in my sig.
