Gums - I still use Nero 8 to make DVDs. I guess the modern equivalent is the lower priced Nero 11 (50 UK) ie not Platinum.

Its very fast - I can convert avi, mp4 etc to DVD files in 15-25 minutes on my 2600k. I usually make simple no menu DVDs, but Nero does menus, chapters + a bunch of other stuff.

Once you use DVDStyler, you'll see it is a lot easier then at first glance using my method. Here's the makers guide, it's too complicated for me. Hope you have better luck.DVDStyler.zip

I am very much aware of that fact. However, it STILL comes out 4:3. This happened to me twice. A complete waste of eight hours of my time. Very frustrating!

Strange. I haven't used it for some time but when I have, if the source aspect ratio was 16:9, then the if you set the option to 16:9 that would be the output. I have to admit that at the time I think I only used wmv files produces by windows live movie maker. Maybe it understands the wmv format better than others.

DVD Maker Giving Grief
Yeah, this is the first time I've ventured off into the world of DVD burning. Doesn't even begin to compare itself to cd burning! What a nightmare this has become. I made an ISO image using DVD Flick (I think) and now ImgBurn (now there's a real PITA!) can't seem to find it anywhere even though I can locate it with Explorer. Good gravy, there's got to be a way to "dumb down" DVD burning! I might give DVD Flick a try again as I didn't select burn as I was encoding my video files. (Didn't see that option at first.) The Windows DVD Maker looked so promising in theory. The preview looked great. Main menu and chapter menus ran flawlessly. Had footage running in a loop and even added some of my own music. But after an all night burn session, this morning I discovered no sound and the image was in 4:3. The two menus worked flawlessly however. God this sucks!

Just a thought. I use Freemake Video converter for most conversion tasks now. I haven't used it for DVD burning but it does have such a function. It may be worth trying. Freemake | Best Freeware Alternatives To Paid Video Software

I rarely burn DVDs anymore. Most TVs & other things can play a few files extensions without having to re-encode them. I mainly just copy the file to a usb, plug it in & away it goes.

This is only a file converter, minus the function to create correct type for burning to a DVD.

No. It has a DVD burning function.If you chose the 2to DVD" function you can burn to DVD, to a folder or to an ISO. I have just tried it and it works fine.
