Some DVD players can handle Windows Media files: If yours can, it'll have a Windows Media logo somewhere on it (or its packaging). For most players, though, you need to convert media files to the same MPEG-2 format that DVD movies use, then burn the files onto a DVD-Video disc. To do this, you'll need to get hold of a DVD authoring program, such as Roxio Easy Media Creator or ULead DVD MovieFactory. As long as the file isn't copy protected, either of these programs should be able to convert it to MPEG-2 format and then burn it to disc as a DVD-Video disc that your player can understand. Both programs are pretty easy to use.
