if its divx movie trailers or short films for example that you downloaded they are more than likely ripped and converted from dvd mpeg2 format into divx so will need to be converted again to mpg(vcd) or mpeg2(dvd) using other software to get nero to burn them, it wont do it itself from divx.

be careful here as most full movies and also trailers, short films etc that you download will be copyrighted so it will actually be illegal to copy them or change them in any way. if its available on the high street then thats a good sign that its not legal to copy.

I'm going to leave it at that as we cannot post links here on how to do this sort of thing but i will give you some links for more general information click here click here
