    1.Convert the download to DVD.

    http://dl.afterdawn.com/vsoDivxToDVD_setup_v0.5.2b.exe
    Import the file(s) (AVI, MPEG, VOB)
    Output (standard DVD file format) to a folder on the HDD.
    Set 'Aspect' to 4:3 (if you have a regular tv)
    Set 'Standard' to NTSC (if you live in North America)

    Burn dvd with 'ImgBurn'

    http://www.imgburn.com/

    Run ImgBurn
    Mode > 'Build'
    Output > 'Device'
    File > 'Browse for Folder', highlight on the 'VIDEO_TS' folder, > 'OK'
    Click the green write button.

    2. If you wish to play the AVI files on a standalone player it has to be 'DivX' compatible.

    3.To burn simple DVD video and CD audio compilations, Nero is eminently suitable.

    Nero is the burner counterpart of Windows.

    A basic , simple answer. If you have files that are in AVI or MPEG format then you can burn these to DVD using NeroVision...no conversion is necessary, heres a very basic guide on how I burn mine.
