    Doesn't work? Can you be more descriptive?

    You start a data compiliation, drag the files over and press burn. Then something goes wrong?

    I have video files that are not images. I keep on trying to burn and keep on getting a error saying "incompatible file".

    sounds like you want to convert them to be watch on a dvd player instead of backing up the data ?

    It would be of some help if you were kind enough to tell us what format are the files you are trying to burn (avi, mpeg etc).

    Nice if you said that to begin with.

    As said you need to convert, author and then lastly burn or use an all in one type app to do the lot or as much possible in one go.

    Get VSO DivX to DVD.
    Load the movie, convert, burn the result.
