    Do you mean burning/copying a DVD to DVD? or a file of some type to a DVD?

    Windows DVD Maker on Vista as well.

    But knowing Microsoft, I think you would be better off with commercial software. I felt lucky on Google. Bit stiff with €40, though...

    You have a movie file (.mkv .avi .wmp etc.) that you want to watch on a DVD player? Try the Windows DVD Maker. :)

    If there ISO files or VOB files then get DVD FAB to burn them to disc, its a 30day trial but its awesome, and dam fast. Otherwise get Nero, an older version if you can. I use Nero 2 Express and it does it all as well.

    If its a AVI file use ConvertX to DVD, its great also, (loves quad cores) only thing is it isn't free.

    All those ^ will let you watch them on ya m8s DVD player.

    Its awesome hey? Tried this program on a Phenom II 945 and it done the movie in less then 15mins, so quick, love it. Dual cores about 25-30mins, My FX-57 about 35mins, depending on the length of the movie.
