I don't use nero much, but I know from TV Production classes that for best quality on a DVD drive, you should use High-Quality (NTSC). I'm sure Nero offers that quality.

Like I said, I'm not sure how Nero burns, but for one thing, you can't play a movie file in a DVD player if it's not on a DVD CD. Just wanted to clear that up. Now, if you want to save the movie in good quality and then burn it on a data CD, then use Windows Movie Maker and save it in NTSC, and then you can "more-less" just drag and drop the movie file in.

Im assuming you have a DVD burner and blank DVD-R's (if not, welcome to the world of VCD's and SVCD's--a whole other format)

are you using Nero Express? if so, it's decently self-explanatory. Open up Express, click on the create DVD function. Then ADD File, browse for it and add. After that you have the option(s) of adding/designing your menu and then previewing it.

One thing though--make sure on the final screen (before you press the BURN button) that under burn options, you've deselected the burn-at-once feature....whenever this is checked off, it screws up burning DVDs

hope i helped

to expand on StormKnights post--most dvd players will play VCDs (and some SVCD's)---those are made on CDR's not DVDRs, so you dont necessarily need DVDR's.
