use the Windows XP Movie maker - if you don't have it download it here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/moviemaker2.mspx

Just import the AVI files and write them to a CD/DVD

WinAVI video converter is supposed to be what you are looking for. It can convert avi to dvd fastly, and its output quality is acceptable. Besides, it supports to burn.

Hi go95,

here is the exact tool for the job:

Avi2DVD:
http://www.trustfm.net/divx/SoftwareAvi2Dvd.html

It's open source software, meaning its completely free for you to use.

There is a guide on the site as well.

If when using the application, you get the error message:

"Floating point division by zero"

There are two posibilities why you might get this:

1.The avi movie is created with a codec that isn't installed, like xvid.
Download the latest xvid codec from here:
http://www.xvidmovies.com/codec/

2.The name of the avi file contain other characters than letters (probably dots). Rename the avi like movie.avi and try again.

Good luck!

The fact is that the modern DVD players recognize avi-files.
I simply write avi-files to the DVD+RW discs (with CDBurnerXP: http://www.cdburnerxp.se/?lang=en - it's free), and my wife enjoys them on 42inch LCD TV.

Look at the specifications of your DVD-player and ensure that your avi-files are encoded in the formats suitable to the player.
(Me just now is waiting till VirtualDube finish to convert files as our DVD-player doesn't recognize AVI-files with AC3 audio...)

If you need a "true" DVD - with menus, subtitles and so on - then you need some DVD-mastering software. (I prefer TMPGEnc DVD Author, but it is commercial.)
