    Burning DVDs

    I've never burned a DVD and i'm new to doing it. I assumed it was just like burning a CD but I cant get the video files to move to the list of things to burn. I'm have Nero and Roxio to burn with but neither will let me burn these files. They are in AVI format and if they need to be in another format, is there a converter that I can use that's free? Thanks.

    This may sound stupid, but first I want to ask you, do you have a DVD burner?

    Same thing came up during work and I went over to the person having problems to find out that he only had a DVD ROM drive that did not have DVD R/RW capabilities.

    Just use VSO ConvertXtoDVD. Extremely easy to use - just drag and drop files, make your custom menus and settings, hit convert and you're done. You can find it on any major torrent site, I'm sure.
    It has support for:
    AVI
    AVS
    DVR-MS
    TIVO
    WMR
    EVO
    M2TS
    FLV
    SWF
    MKV
    DAT
    IFO
    3GP
    M4A
    MOV
    MP4
    NSV
    OGG
    OGM
    RAM
    RM
    RMV
    ASF
    WM
    WMV
    DIVX
    XVID
    and some others I can't remember.

    Edit: for clarification, ConvertXtoDVD is a DVD burning software, as well, not just a converter. It converts the files into the proper format and then you hit burn and come back in an hour or w/e.

    I use DVD Flick (www.dvdflick.net)

    Also very easy to use, and open source.

    I tried using this but after all was said and done I went to look at the files i had it do and each one was like a gig each. Is that supposed to happen? I'm trying to burn the first season of house for a friend and I thought I could fit it all on one or two discs but not if each episode is going to be a gig each.

    Well, the retail version of season 1 of House is on 3 DVDs....

    But for some reference, when I burn episodes of TV shows, I can usually fit at most 6 episodes per disc when they are around 250mb each before conversion.

    DVDFlick will let you lower the quality of your video files to fit more per disc, if final quality isn't too much of an issue. It's still very watchable. Although be prepared to let it run all night if you are trying to put entire seasons on 1 disc.
