Which version of Nero do you have? Nero 6 & 7 are excellent at burning videos to dvd. Version 7 even better as it has extra divx support than before. Choose video format & dvd output, select your video file, select type of menus you want & chapter settings. I only have Nero 5 so I can't walk it thru with you but I have heard from others about its abilities. I use a mac to burn my dvd videos. BTW Nero will do any necessary conversions. Oh & audio format. Choose Dolby digital 192 kbps otherwise you'll be using unnecessary audio space which would be better put to encoding the video for better quality.

Check your dvd burner brand & model & see whether it can burn only or both dvd-/+ as these are different dvd formats (a little like vhs v's beta.) If it can only burn one or the other then you'll need to get those type of dvd disks. If you have a dvd rw burner, trial it out on a rewritable disk 1st to be sure it works as you want it to. (But beware, some set-top players don't play dvd-/+ rw media.) Also some brands if not most brands of dvd burners have a preference for certain brands of dvd media & will be more reliable with such prefered media. Same can be said for 'some' dvd set-top players.
