    b$j: CD image is basically a one signle file that contains the stuff that CD will contain -- it's a "photo of the CD" containing the exact data in the exact same way as it will appear on CD once it's burned, whatever the content - audio, video, PSX game, PC game, regular data, etc.. You burn images by choosing "Burn from image" from your CD software and open the image file (600-800MB file) from your HDD and burn it.

    slimvargy: Yes.

    Since Nero v5.5 has the encoding included in it, if that is used could I just open the AVI files send them through Nero and then burn them onto a CD-R?

    NO!!

    Read these forums, man! Nero's encoding quality _sucks_ -- it produces horrible quality if you compare it to any stand-alone MPEG-1/2 encoder, like TMPGEnc (which is free).

    OK thanks...and I read that...but I find good/bad reviews about everything...I'll stick with you though so now I need some help. What OS specs do I need to support everything I will need to create the movies I desire. Maybe this is a stupid question but while looking at TMPGEnc stuff they made it sound like you needed a huge amout of space and I'm just not sure if I have it.

    Operating system can be basically any Windows -- you just need lots of HDD for DVD conversions, gigabytes and gigabytes of free space. If you plan to rip your original DVD and make a DVD-R copy out of it, you need to have appx. 10GB of free HDD space -- luckily HDD is cheap nowadays.

    Now I'm gonna close this thread, getting too big and has too many non-related discussions within one thread :)
