Default Newbie AVI > DVD Little Help Please!!

Hi there,

Firstly, im a real newbie so be nice

I have just today recieved my Pioneer DVR-106 DVD writer, and some - 'bulkpaq' 4x DVD-R Disks...

I am attempting to convert an AVI file onto a DVD so i can play it on my home DVD player.

I have, in the past, burnt SVCDs, converting them to MPEG-2 format, and just using nero to burn them for me...

I thought it was that simple with DVDs, except they can hold alot more data thus better quality.

However, looking on here it doesnt seem to be that way!!

Is there any tutorials about converting an AVI to DVD?

Can anyone advise how burning a DVD differed from just burning an SVCD or a VCD appart from capacity?

Thanks

Jonathan

Thanks i'll take a look at that...

Just a little off topic issue (i cant be arsed to create a new thread):

The thing i dont get, is i convert it to mpeg-2 format, it created the .mpg file, but i cannot view it?

Is there somthing wrong with my codecs? Is there a speacial prog available so i can preview the .mpg fileprior to burning?

Use a software DVD player, such as WinDVD or PowerDVD to view...
