    A LOT. Searched this forum and have read countless entries. HOWEVER, I take the term "Newbie" to a new high (or low) and it's too advanced for me to understand.

    Have Nero Express 6.3.1.15. Want to burn AVI files so I can watch on my DVD player. I KNOW Nero can't do this (right?) and it needs to be converted to MPEG. Questions:

    1) What is the EASIEST (and free) way to do this? I know there's TMPGE and others. Smart guy but NOT AT THIS!!! VERY stupid. Which option do I go with and is there a "Super dummies" guide on how to operate it?

    2) What's the difference between MPEG1 and MPEG2? I've seen this mentioned a few times but don't see how they differ.

    It can If you've got the full Nero 6 suite. Use Nero Vision Express. By far the easiest way to do it.

    This is not the right forum for such questions, try one of the specialized ones.

    AVI2VCD is a small freeware conversion program that is extremely easy to use.

    1) Thank you.
    2) When you say "easy", could a dim-witted 8 yr old (hidden inside a 36 yr old) operate it?
    3) I did as Mystic Eyes recommended and got Nero VISION. Is AVI2VCD easier than that (keeping in mind I haven't actually TRIED my new upgrade yet)?

    Yes. You specify: source file(avi), Target file name(mpg) and TV format (pal,ntsc) and whether you want to turn off when finished. Press the button and wait. - Oh and you can ask it to split the target file at 700mb (CD full)

    Target file name(mpg)
    ***Is there a difference btwn this and MPEG? Realize I'm being somewhat anal here, but you never know when it comes to hi-tech.

    and TV format (pal,ntsc)
    ***Don't understand this and have never seen it before. If I want to play on my DVD, which would I opt for?

    you can ask it to split the target file at 700mb (CD full)
    ***Does this mean if I have a file that runs over the alloted 80 minutes of disc time and can break it down into TWO seperate files?

    NTSC is the video type you would choose if you live in America. Europe and most other countries use PAL.

    No

    As already stated this is the TV type. If you are not going to play it on a TV then should not be using this program. You should be using VirtualDub and creating DivX coded video

    It would seem so.
