A program called TMPGenc can convert them into mpeg1 for you and is free. Once converted into mpeg1 you can make a VCD using recording software.

Ok - depending on the file size, you'll need to chop the divx file.. possibly in thirds. Then you need to convert the divx video to mpeg1. (352 x 288) The easiest way to convert would be to just open nero and select video cd; drag the files over, click the burn button and nero will do the rest. (note- this could take hours)

again, depending on the size of the divx file.. all i do is use divx cat to cut the movie in half. then use nero to convert the video and make the cd all at once. there is also virtualdub you can try; don't use avi chopper, as it will sometimes corrupt the output video.
