Try Nero vision express, it should be on youe nero cd, if not you can download a trial version from nero.

I take it you're trying to make a DVD that will play in a home DVD player.

The standard format for these DVD's is ISO so you need a programme capable of creating an ISO, and Nero Vision Express is such a programme.

However, be aware, that before the ISO can be burned the programme needs to convert from the native file type and this can take several hours during which time you're PC will be such a slug that you won't be able to use it for anything else.

I tried this a couple of times and gave up in frustration.

If you use nero....open smart start....go to photo and video....in the drop down menu chose Make Your Own DVD Video....add the files you want to burn and just follow the wizard all the way thru.On the last page click settings and untick burn disc at once because some of the earlier vers of nero had trouble with that (the latest is 6.6.0.14).It will then transcode the files to the correct format and then burn them.
There's no need to convert them to ISO's at all.If they're already in ISO format then use the copy and backup option and chose burn image to disc instead.
