    Just purchased a Yamaha DVD S550. It's a DVD player that plays burnt DivX files. I'm new to this, how would I go about making a movie on a cd that is playable. I'd be using toast, I'm just curious as to what format? Mac & PC, ISO 9660? Anyone who knows, fill me in. Also, if I am going to throw a bunch of Divx movies onto a DVD, what format would I do that in?

    Thanks!

    DivX uses the AVI container (or extension). There are a number of guides, methods, and programs to convert DVD to DivX. I like to use the DVD Decrypter, DVD2AVI, VirtualDub method. It does take a while for the conversion. I stopped doing that after I bought a DVD writer. DVD to DivX takes 4 hours+ on a AMD Barton 2.2GHz + 512MB RAM. Original DVD to 4.7GB DVD takes 1 hour.

    Go to doom9.net and check out the guides.

    I already have the DivX files on my computer. I need to know what format to burn in. ie, mac and pc, iso 9600, etc...

    also, since the dvd played does mpgs too, can i mix and match divx files with mpgs?

    Data mode, if that's what you're asking. Yes, you can mix and match.

    Data mode has many sub categories though. Which would be best? Best for CD, best for DVD?

    So I could have 5 Avi's and then 3 Mpg's and It would all work?
