My wife is a teacher and I need to burn an episode of a tv show. I cant get nero to work and I cant uninstall and reinstall it for some reason. I got some bug or somethind and I am afraid it will take a windows reinstall to fix nero.

Is there some other program that will do this easy? I cant easily test the burn because I dont have a standard dvd player anymore.

There is no program that is both free and easy.

There are free programs like the older versions of TMPGenc that will convert to MPEG2, which you can then author with other free programs like DVDStyler and burn with yet other free programs like ImgBurn. There are quite a few steps involved and you have to know what you're doing, but it can be done for free.

If you don't want the hassle, you will have to pay for something like ConvertXtoDVD.
ok thanks. its just when you google something like this you get forum answers from like 5 years ago with software that obviously is outdated and/or no longer even supported. I think i did have that convertx somewhere on a coomputer here. I just cant remember what does what anymore. too many applications!!
Only free dvdflick worked for me (out of paid-for Arcsoft showbiz, cyberlink producer, sonic dvd).
Windows7 has software "Windows DVD Maker". Thats free and easy.
anybody here have any luck getting subtitles to work with dvdstyler?

i have an mpg + srt that i can use to create an mkv with subs. however, when i try to use it with dvdstyler there are no subs in the files generated in video_ts.

avs2dvd http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AVStoDVD it's easy and free


i will suggest ReJig in DVD author mode

the only "problem" is to demux mpeg to raw m2v and audio (easy with dgindex)

and convert srt to sup (easy with SubtitleCreator or txt2sup)

FWIW, a "universal" DVD player that will play standard video DVDs and data DVDs (divx, xvid, etc) can be had for ~$50. http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...15d4c48347en02

No conversion required and you can fit 3 or 4 movies on a single DVD disc.
