Is your player SVCD ready ?
If it is, download a software that converts wmf, avi to svcd (my brother says TMPEGenc)

Dont bother to try
I tried some of the Buzz videos a few months ago and when I converted 1 video. (ex max 5 lighting) it was 1 hr long and divx compression after converting to dv sutable for DVD playback it expanded to about 1.8 gig. It startrd out as 100meg avi
I found it beter (and cheaper) to just burn them to a cd for playback on the pc.

I tried sonic DVD
dvd complete
showtime

same results

That's about right. But once you have that uncompressed file then just convert to VCD format and it will fit onto a CD...you can get about an hour of video onto a CD in VCD format.

I use NERO for everything. My home movies, when I pull them off the DV camcorder, are about 11 to 12 gigs for an hours' worth....then I just load them up into NERO and choose the VCD option and burn away.

It's when you try to uncompress something that's already been compressed once (with a CODEC) that you may encounter problems with turning the file into a VCD format file.

Save your money and get a dvd burner. You can grap 1st generation burners for 100.00 US. The price of dvd burners is dropping.

So what format do you recommend? It's still a little confusing to me..

DVD-R, DVD-RW....etc...

There are two major dvd formats. I can't remember the names but if you have tha latest dvd player should not have a problem with playback. Please correct me if i'am wrong.
