    I just got a new Sony DVD burner to burn the video files off of my computer. The videos are a .avi, and I was told to burn a dvd, i should convert it to a .VOB, which I did but the files I burned wern't veiwable on a DVD player. I put the video files into the video_ts folder.

    How do I burn .vob files? Should I convert my video into another format?

    Use a program that is for authoring discs, you probably received one in the pacckage that came with the burner. For a disc to play on a standalone requires more than just converting a file to VOB.

    Here's a list of what makes up a DVD: www.videohelp.com/dvd

    If you don't have a program for authorin a DVD I'd suggest trying Ulead Movie Factory... There's many other as well.

    I actualy found a program called ConvertXtoDVD which works amazingly. Thanx anyways! Oh but this does bring me to another question - When it converts and burns the files, where does the converted files go? I can't seem to find it :(

    I've seen that recomended before by lot's of people. I didn't like the conversion quality myself on a older version but i know it's easy to use. Probably as good or better than Nero.

    As far as the file locations I don't know. Look in the options or preferences and it will be listed there. That or Documents folder or the folder it installed to.
