You can't unless you are willing to spend a lot of money and time.

go to www.vcchelper/com and follow the tools link to Virtual Dub. Download the 1.3 version. (It's freeware) This version allows you to convert from .asf to avi. (YOU DON'T WANT THE 1.4 VERSION. Microsoft made him make the newer versions WITHOUT .asf support.) Once you have converted it to .avi, use tmpgenc to make it into an mpeg 1 compliant vcd. than burn it into a vcd with nero burning rom (or other suitable vcd burning software.) Tmpgenc can also be downloaded from the tools section at's freeware as well) So the only thing needed is LOTS OF TIME and HARD DISK space. Instructions for using the above software can also be found at
