Go get the program CDBurnerXP. It's free and will do most anything. Now, very important. Make sure the player will play the format that you burn. I have a high end Sony Blu-ray player that will not play .avi files. My older Toshiba upconverting DVD player will.
I have windows media player included on my pc which gives me the option to burn, rip and sync cds and dvds. Should I purchase additional software to burn dvds to watch on stand alone dvd players?
