So I finally took the plunge and got a DVD burner. One of the big reasons I got it was to put all the WWE/WWF/WCW PPV's I've, *ahem*, Acquired, *ahem* over the years over to DVD.

I've started reading up on what I need to do and I must be missing something. A lot of these shows are in Xvid or avi's. Is there an easier way to burn these to DVD.

I'm glad I got it anyway as I'll use it. (It's one of the Lightscribe ones)but if someone could point me int he right direction it would be great

thanks

Well, you can just burn them as data, but I'm not sure that's what you're going for. Are you looking to end up with DVDs you can actually watch with a DVD player? Only certain players are compatible with DivX/XviD AVIs - but any conversion FROM that format into "normal" DVD type stuff is a massive pain and will take a long time and might not look that great after you're done. SO.

Keep them in their current format and just make sure you have a player that can read it! I'm a big fan of this cheapo model from Philips (The W at Amazon). You should just be able to burn your DVDs as data (or DVD-R or whatever the terminology is) and it'll just WORK. (Sometimes. Sometimes it STILL won't work and you're stuck watching it on the computer instead.)

Thanks for the advice, and from the Boss none the less

I can just leave them in the format that they are in and watch them on my x-box (it's been Modified), also walmart has Yahoo Divx player's on for $50.

Thanks again

I have to second the Phillips thumbs up, everyone that goes to CompUsa for a DVD i head em straight to it. It reads basically all formats of burns, plus PAL and can become a region free player(with remote control codes).

For those planning to buy DVD burners, the Lite On new model, especially the external one is a MACHINE, can take a beating of overuse and keep running smooth and clean, top speeds of 16x burn and 8x on dual layer.

My mother got the Blue Screen of Death to END all Blue Screens of Death today-- it said there was a problem with the computer and it required her-- required her-- to reformat. It kept shutting off and turning back on, etc... so she reformatted.
