i did a brief search and found the file types for real player - rm, rmvb,ram


this ehow web page has several links on how to convert from these file types to .AVI (which is what u need). the .AVI files can later be converted and burned into a dvd

check them out and let me know if u need some more help

have u already tried to burn the files into DVD?

if not you should go shead and try it because your DVD burner program might just convert them and be able to burn them into DVD itself

if the files are .avi, youre media player should be able to play it

and you can burn .avi files into dvdr using any standard dvd burning software



i might be misunderstanding your question

are you just trying to locate the files on your system so you can burn them?

Im not positive

to the best of my knowledge, it will be on there as parts but it will play as one video if you play the dvd and let it ride instead of jumping to scenes

maybe someone else knows better
