Hi,

I am thinking of purchasing a TOSHIBA SD270, firstly is this a good player in anyones opinion and also,

If I have a Divx movie on my pc and I want to burn to disc do I have to convert to DVD? if not how do I burn directly to the disc, do I burn it as a data disc,

Im pretty confused with the whole thing, I have asked the question in other forums before but has been slated by people saying if I dont know this then I shouldnt own a pc?

Any helpful advice would be really gratefully received

Cheers

Froggy

If you don't know you don't know, not your fault you want to use different media types!

If you burned the disk as a dvd then you would not need a DivX player. Just burn the file to a cd and put in the player, the manual should say what sort of disks it accepts but I've never had a problem.

This is what im unsure about, do i burn the divx file to a cd through windows using right click send to "cd/dvd drive" with my disc inserted, do I burn it using as programme to transfer the file to a cd as a data file? I have AVS CD/DVD data burner, I also have winavi convertor

I user Nero and just burn the file straight to the disc, data file will do the job what ever program you use to create the disc. Try experimenting, can't hurt to get it wrong a few times!
Not having used the MS software to burn discs I'm not totaly sure but shouldn't be any different.

The burning software that you have will do the job but i've found it to be a bit hit and miss on the playback quality(lip sink problems and a bit stuttery on some discs) i would strongly recommend getting yourself a copy of Nero as that is without doubt the most reliable and if your going to be doing several films in the future it will definatly be worth the initial outlay, you can download a 15 day demo version from the following link
