Step 4: Burn .AVI to DVD with Nero
Basically there are two different ways to burn an .avi-file on DVD with Nero for play in a DVD player:
1. If you have a DVD-player that is capable of playing avi-files, you can simply use Nero Burning Rom or Nero Express and burn a data disc with the .avi-file untouched.
2. However, for NeroVision, I suppose you don't want a data disc with an avi-file but a "real" Video-DVD in compatible DVD-format. For that you will need Nero Video. In the "Create & Export" menu, choose DVD- DVD-Video, then import the .avi-file and follow the instructions. You can either create a menu and chapters, or just make a simple DVD without menu and one video. In the final step, NeroVideo will either write the necessary DVD structure on a DVD or to a folder on your hard disk. If you used NeroVision before, it should be easy for you because NeroVideo is very similar.
