Are there any programs that are capable of doing this? I have VisualHub which works great for a single file but i can not do more than one file per disk.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You want to copy existing DivX files to a DVD? I believe you can just copy them over and burn the DVD. That's what I've done in the past without any problems reading them back or playing them on a DVD player.

I'm sorry i totally forgot to mention the fact that i would like to re encode them to play on a set top DVD player. 4 XviD/Divx Files to a DVD playable on a set top player. Make sense?


Like i said before i have Visual Hub and i can convert 1 divx file for a playable DVD very easily and it works great. I just wish there was a way to do more than 1... Without stitching them all together obviously.

Is your DVD player capable of playing DivX files? If not, you will need to re-encode them to standard DVD format (mpeg2). The problem with this is that the size of the videos will have to increase as they're converted to mpeg2 and, depending on the length of the videos, you may not be able to fit all of them on one disc. If they will all fit, you'll need to do some DVD authoring.

Use Toast Titanium 9. Or 8. I have both and they work just fine.
Backups are like guns and condoms. It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Ok sorry I didn't expound on this earlier...I was in a rush to get to the bank.

Ok so with toast t 9 or even 8 all you have to do is select DVD Video and drop your files into the drag and drop area and tell it to burn. Very simple and it works exceedingly well. I've been burning downloads of Battlestar Galactica for my mom who only has a dvd player. I can usually fit around 3 episodes on a disc at a time. It's an easy way to drop multiple episodes in a disc and order them correctly.
