    I have about 600 gigs of video (Simpsons series 1-16 etc) that I want to put on DVD. However nero keeps crashing on me. What's the best program to do this?

    Would using DVD+R's make a big difference? I have about 800 DVD-R's laying around so I was hoping to use those, but I would prefer quality video.

    And finally I can only fit around 5 episodes of whatever series I have. Is there anyway to fit more without loosing quality? Perhaps another video format? Most of what I have are avi's. So one season of say.. Pokemon - Season 1 (52 episodes) would be around 10 DVD's - times that by all 468+ episodes.. Well you get the point.

    if they are in .avi format, it should be about 100-200 megs each shouldn't it? (for the pokemon at least)

    that means about 23-26 episodes of pokemon per DVD...

    It depends on the DVD player you want to play them on, and I would suggest fixing Nero

    Try ashampoo. I did, and it's so much better than Nero.

    Jumpman had a thread the other day about alternatives to nero:

    As for recoding you could use a higher quality standard like h264 but that would take forever on that much stuff (I will be stunned and amazed if you can sustain real time), saying this try xvids "cartoon mode" if you can.

    ConvertXtoDVD is the best! It's simple to use and you can create custom menus with chapters and subtitles!

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'll be looking into quite a bit of software tonight.

    i think nero vision works well if you're converting .avis directly to dvdplayer viewable dvds, cause unless your dvd player can read divx or xvid or any other codec, it wont work
