Hi All,

My daughter downloaded a movie off limewire, it is a .avi file, now I have no idea how to copy it onto a disc, I thought all I needed was DVDshrink but that doesn't seem to be the case as it says you still need a burning program. I also tried to do it through Windows Movie Maker but I get a codec error, going to the system information there are a number of files in the video codec tab but...so really what I need to know are the very basics of DVD burning, the programs I need and the type of file that it needs to be so it can be read by a DVD player etc. Any information or knowledge would be helpful and appreciated, thank you.

Have a look at DVD Santa.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

I am just learning the same myself. I would suggest visiting: afterdawn.com
Something I rarely do is sign up for newsletters, but this one is good and informative and I haven't been nailed in the inbox with junk. Also, may search for Goldwave freeware, I downloaded it on a suggestion but have not used it much yet, but I think it will do quite a bit. Good luck with it. Let us know what you learn.

I just remembered that I also downloaded Apollo MPEG to DVD Burner at:
http://www.createdvd.net/mpeg_to_dvd_creator.htm
This also was a suggestion from someone who has experience.

Thanks fozzie, I will also check out your posted suggestion.
