    I have Nero Vision Express. When I make the burning progress, What type of cd do i use? CD+R or DVD+R? The files are about 4.5GB.

    DarkThief,
    You are trying to do a DVD so use the DVD+R blank media

    I used the DVD+R but somehow it doesn't work :S I tried the CD+R but then it says that it is not enough space.

    DarkThief,
    Either the burner does not recognize the DVD or you are using the wrong type of DVD. What is the make and model # ( exactly )of your burner? W/ that information we can help you find the correct disks for you to use

    GO into Nero and go to Recorder, Choose Recorder and it will have your firmware version and the make of your writer (sony, plextor, asus, msi etc)

    You have to burn it to your HD with Nero vision express then shrink it with DVD shrink. Then Nero will burn it with Nero burning rom. At least thats how I do it.

    DarkThief,
    What I meant by make and model # if like this:
    Pioneer- 108

    Then we can go to this website (below)and see what other blank media people are using w/ the burner and if they are having problems w/ the blank media.

    http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters

    If you know how to get into Device Manager then look under Cd/DVD Roms and that also will tell you what the make and model # of the burner is

    I just use DVD Santa to do that, I find it to be the easiest way since it will encode and burn for you, all you do is add the .avi files

    Ahhh This is all confusing.
    Firstly, i sent a private message to Car.Mike
    Secondly, I used divxdvd and it turned out that i have to buy a product of DVD-Video Pulg-in :S
    Thirdly, Can i have a some sort of easy answer to my problems? Or at least give me your type of procedure of sending .AVI files into DVD?

    DarkThief,
    Jim_dandy gave you the program below
    http://www.vso-software.fr/download.htm

    1. Make 2 folders on the Desktop, call on New 1 and the other New 2
    2. Since the files are in .avi form on the HD OPEN DIVXTODVD by clicking on it
    3. You will see Source File w/ a red X. Click on the Red X and that clears the Source File and next to the Red X is a folder. Click on that folder and then locate the .avi file on the computer
    4. Underneath that is the DESTINATION FOLDER. Click on the red X and clear it then go to the folder on the right click on it and NOW FIND THE FOLDER YOU MADE CALLED NEW 1 and click on New 1.

    5 It should be setup so now click on CONVERT and in a little while it will convert the file to .vobs

    6. Now click on DVDShrink open it and go to OPEN FILES click on it and find the file that you processed using DIVXTODVD ( it is in the folder called NEW 1)
    7. Shrink will now process the data. Shrink guides are under the guide section at the top.

    I am Refering to Nero. Nero Tells me that i need a plug-in for .VOB etc. Can you give me procedures on how to send .Avi files to DVDs and put it in Nero? Or should i say the Instructions on how to Make a Video CD in Nero.
