Side bars on Divx playback

I just got a new laptop, and I have a dvd player that supports divx playback. I've always burned divx files to dvd with my old computer with no problems, but with this new laptop I get bars on the side when I play the burned divx files on my dvd player. I'm assuming the cause of this is the fact that the laptop has a widescreen display. Does anyone know a way to change a setting or something before burning so I can get a correct aspect? Thanks.

But, a 4:3 divx file with bars on the side while playing on a widescreen laptop is the "correct" aspect ratio.
