    The file type has to be an Mpeg2 but there is more to it than that. the DVD must be 'authored' using a DVD authoring program. There are many out there and free demos that are time limited. Try Sonic or Ulead for starters. If you have the higher end Nero burning program or Roxio they both have some catabilitues in that area too.

    A lot of players will play a range of MPEGs, some will handle Divx and WMV. Almost all should handle JPEGs and MP3s. Check the booklet which came with your player, or just try putting a range of files onto a CD and see which yours will play.

    Actually that depends. I have a player from Apex which can play video files, MP3, WMVs without requiring the disc be written a certain way.

    It can also view picture files (like JPG, GIF, BMP)

    Very cool...

    Divx and Xvid are usually seen as .AVI files.
    Check the downloads section and guides at www.doom9.net for conversion programs and howtos.
