Default Burning Videos to DVD's

I have 130 episodes of thundercats and i want to burn them to DVD so i can watch them on my TV. i have nero 6. when i go into the DVD section there is no video part, so my first question is could a use a DVD and burn them as VCD's(video cd's)? i have tried to burn it just on a DVD data disk and it failed. also my brother said i would have to format them into a diferent format to play them on a DVD player,how would i do this? right noe they are in windows media player video format.

so basically just to summerize, i have a bunch of viedeos that i want to play on a DVD player and don't know how. thanks in advanced for any help.

My dvd player supports WMP formats. Check in your manual that came with the dvd player to find out.

dishdog, you would have to convert every one to DVD format and you would be doing it for the next year. Your best option would to get top quallity blank CDs and burn them to VCD format. I would suggest that you invest in a third party video editting software such as pinnacle to do it. This should be done on a clean partition also so as to stop any unneccessary programs from interferring. And the pinnacle program will allow you to burn them to what ever format you want.
Understand this though... that when coverting to dvd format you will need about 6 gigs of hard disc space for every hour of video and the rendering from one format to the other before burning can take hours for it to finish.
Good luck
