FLAC to CD... there are two ways:

a) download FLAC Frontend, and convert the FLAC files to WAV
b) download the FLAC plugin for Nero

As for the DVD files, just drag and drop the entire VIDEO_TS file into Nero and you should be flying.

Good luck!

For DVDs the best burning application in Windows is definitely ImgBurn, but it isn't as user-friendly as Nero.
For AudioCDs as SirGH wrote, the fastest way is to download a flac plugin for Nero, e.g.

On a similar subject of DVD burning, I have recently downloaded a couple of DVD's from various sites (one from queenzone), when I came to burn to disc using ConvertXtoDVD (my current method) I get the picture compressed into a 1 inch wide image down the centre of the screen. Other DVD downloads have been OK.I can view it OK in some players but the same thing happens in others. I would be very grateful for any advice (I'm not a computer genius!!!). Many thanks.

Oh my god, why do you convert the DVDs ? Are you trying to create DivX files from it ?
