Default 700 MB DivX file ... to DVD-R... Nero 7 (Vision) can do the straight conversion?

700 MB DivX file ... to DVD-R... Nero 7 (Vision) can do the straight conversion?

Can it? Or do I have to convert first with another program?

Also, is DivX to DVD-R different than XviD to DVD-R?

I use Blaze Media Pro to convert the file and then dvdSanta to put it on DVD. Works great for me. As for Nero, I've never really used it. And xVid seems to be Divx spelled backwards so that may answer part of your question.

Xvid is better than DivX.

nero will handle both. they are both variations of mp4, so nero will handle them, even if it look like it won't

I use Nero 6, and it will convert from DivX format to DVD formatting.

I'm pretty sure DivX and Xvid are different things, seeing as they have two different websites.

www.xvid.org
www.divx.com
