What format is your movie in?

If it's not already in DVD Video format (i.e. a VIDEO_TS folder containing IFO/VOB/BUP files), you'll need to convert it so that it is.

To do that you can use something like DVD Flick or ConvertXtoDVD.

Avoid Nero, use DVD Flick as it's free...guide ~ http://www.dvdflick.net/guide/index_en.html

If you are interested in payware use ConvertXtoDVD as suggested by LUK.

Is there any other program than DVDFlick thats faster and as good or better? I love DVDFlick but it honestly look me over 1.5 hours to convert my .avi to DVD movie files.

How is ConvertXDVD compared to DVDFlick? If it's better, I don't mind buying it.

Yeah nvm it's $40. I was fine with $20 or something ... $40 is a bit high especially when DVDFlick is free :)

Hi all,

I am totally new to burning dvds. I have both Imgburn and DVDflick. I saw an online tutorial video in which the person tells us to first use dvdflick to convert the movie into a VIDEO_TS folder, and then use the 'build' function in Imgburn to build it into an ISO file. Then burn the ISO to a dvd.

Is the 'build' function necessary? When I used to burn vcds, Nero burned the MPEG file directly into vcd without needing to make an ISO.

Thank you.

DVD Flick uses ImgBurn for burning and Nero will of course use it's own engine for burning and it'll be part of the conversion program.

You don't need to make an ISO, you can burn on the fly. It's still done in Build mode but you set the 'Output' to 'Device' rather than 'Image File'.

Build mode is for everything that isn't an image....so if you don't create an ISO and you want something on your disc, the you'll have to use build mode.
