FLV is not what a DVD burner program is expecting. It is expecting VOB files in addition to the IFO and other good stuff that makes a DVD what it is.

You need to convert the FLV files to make them useable.

A free FLV converter is
HERE

Once files are converted into AVI or better yet, MPEG2, then use a simple program like DVD Santa to make a DVD from those files.

DVD Santa is not free but I've never heard of anyone not agreeing it is worth every penny.

DVD Santa is

Did you download the free version of DVD Santa and drag/drop the AVI file there and click to make DVD?

'Record Now' messes with Nero and sometimes neither one will work.

Maybe I'm missing something here. I've been telling you how to make a DVD that is playable in a standard DVD player, such as may be found in your room next to your TV.

DVD Santa is the least expensive way to do that. You could go on up to Pinnacle Studio or even Adobe products for making menus and all that for many $.

DVD Santa is yet one more burner program but hasn't been flagged as conflicting with any other burner program installed at the same time. It will either burn to disk, or just make the needed files for another program to do the burning.

If you are only trying to store the files on a DVD to watch them later on your computer, then Nero is a good choice as long as you specify in Nero that you are making a Data disk. If this is what you are trying, then all the file converting is not needed.

The No Disk error could be caused by the multiple burner programs all being installed at the same time. I'd un-install Record Now and see if that cures the problem.

Are you using Memorex blank DVD's? I don't like them, too many duds. My burner says 'No Disk'

The idea of the converting is to get them to a file type that a DVD authoring program can use. This why the FLV converter I spoke of above. It can make the file into an mpg or avi that DVD Santa can handle to make the final DVD. It's a multi-step process. One program gets the file ready for the next program and then a DVD can be made.

If you made the file into an avi, open DVD Santa and click the first button to make a DVD. Drag the avi file into the new window DVD Santa makes and click to make the DVD.
