    I've got approx 4GB of content that i want to put on to DVD-R- 20 'Simpsons' episodes to be precise
    But i'm not sure how to do this.

    I was going to use Nero, and have upgraded to v5.5.10.28, which allows me to burn to DVD
    But which of the options do i need?
    Looking at it, i have the choice of:

    *Data DVD> Creates a new data DVD
    *Other DVD formats > Video DVD
    >create a DVD from an image file

    I assumed that i would need to use Video DVD, but it says in the wizzard " Nero needs a DVD compatible VOB, IFO, BUP image files to create a dvd, which i'm not using?

    What is also confusing me is the fact that regardless of which one i choose, i can cut'n paste all 20 episodes , before the disk is full, where as if i import the episodes into Studio 8, i can only have about 5 episodes before the disk is full, both with DVD-R

    Can anyone help plz

    Pinnacle Studio 8 can do this but there's a bewlidering variety of other (sometimes cheaper) ones that can do so, too. You need to use the SVCD output if you want to play it on a "living room" dvd player. I use Ulead and it does the same thing as well as putting menus etc on the disk too.
