If you want to do is copy the RealMedia file to a DVD-R, then use Nero since you have it and add the file to the dvd file list on the left. The compliation type should be DVD-ROM (ISO). FILE/Compilation Properties will show you the type.

You can also use Nero Express and select data as the type of disc being burned. Do not try to burn it as a DVD-Video since the RealMedia file format is not a DVD type of file.

You can get .rm to DVD disc as a data file...but it'll only play on your PC. To make .RM into a DVD that'll play on a stand-alone DVD player you need to convert it . TINRA is freeware found in the download area...which will convert Real files to, I believe, AVI...which needs to be converted to MPEG2 (a number of programs will do this...none of them free...TMPGenc is one.) In fact, if you install the Matroshka Full package, TMPGenc Plus will convert your .RM file directly into MPEG2. Then you'll want to author that MPEG2 file using an authoring program (ie.TMPGenc DVD Author) and burn to disc using a burning program. There are a lot of different ways of doing any of these steps...and commercial storyboard editors which will perform all of the steps mentioned...and though they might be expensive...the combined cost of all the other programs needed to perform the tasks is less overall. There are also freeware solutions available...but some might be confusing for a newbie.

Forgive my spelling....that's Matroska Pack Full...a google search will turn it up...HJChristian is one of the developers...and he sometimes monitors the general forum. Oh...and if you are XP or Win2k TMPGenc DVD Author will also burn...so you won't need Nero.

Now that's what I call service...from the developer, himself.
