Please help a StarBurn beginner? Starting with a 700mb avi movie file, I used the wizards to create ISO image & burn to DVD. The result is a data disc only readable by computer instead of a video DVD that can be played on any DVD player. My DVD players cannot read this disc at all -- what may I do to generate a playable DVD instead of a data disc?
Thanks!

If your standalone DVD player does not understand AVIs (with some sort of MPEG4 compression, DivX or Xvid I guess) the disc is not gonna play (this is exactly what you see...). To have playable media you need to remaster MPEG4 -> MPEG2 (standard DVD-Video compression method) and provide default DVD-Video disc layout. Unfortunately StarBurn cannot help you here :( At least now...

I've burned 100's of playable DVDs using Nero - but its time-consuming & I hope to use StarBurn instead. Can it work only with VOB, IFO, BUP (DVD-video)?? If so, can you recommend a means of conversion (example, avi or wmv to DVD-video)?

Thanks very much for your time & trouble.

Sincerely, Bonnie

Yes, you need pre-authorized DVD content (VIDEO_TS with VOBs and IFOs) to create a true DVD-Video with StarBurn.

I'd take a look at DVD Author and VirtualDub. They can do authoring and re-compression. And they are free.
