GFD was written primarily to get captured television broadcasts comfortably into a DVD conform format. Naturally you can use the program also for MPG videos of other origins, however no typical functions for copying DVDs (e.g. ripp, transcode...) are contained. To burn the final DVD use your favourite burning program, or simply that one, that was included with the DVD burner. GFD provides only the necessary VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders (as well as the VOB and IFO files). These can be burned with any DVD - burn program (UDF - ISO format). Problems with stand alone DVD players have occured very rarely so far, however I can't give you a warranty. Since version 0.82 it is possible to burn also from GFD itself, if Nero (version 5.5 or higher) is installed.
