    I dont really use those pieces of software you mention , but 'yes' you can convert [actually encode] VCD (which'll be mpg format) to MPEG-2 which is DVD compliant*

    I personally use MainConcept MPEG Encoder , then when I have MPEG-2 file I'd open up TMPGEnc DVD Author ... convert to VOB format ... which is ready to burn to DVD-R

    * DVD compliant - correct screen resolution & 48Hz audio.

    I also know it can be done . . .
    I use a nifty program called DVD Santa strictly because it it easy to use. I have used Win DVD but was unsatisfied with the blocky finished results.

    Probably the most powerful would be to use NeroVision Express 3 as it allows either Full controll over making a Menu or no menu at all. It does a nice job encoding it as well.

    I mentioned the Menu aspect because there will be NO loss in quality if you were to put 2 VCD Movies on one DVD.

    All options take time and patience, trial and error but DVD Santa was a Click and burn option.

    Good luck,
