    Do you want to burn the AVI file onto a disk or convert the AVI file to DVD Movie format and burn the disk?

    Would advise to use RW till you know what your doing it'll save making coasters...lol..,the easiest & imo the best is to connect the comp directly to the tv & use the comp as a media player

    DVD Flick (which is not currently supported) can convert and author a DVD movie from AVI (and other type files).
    It can optionally include a menu and burn the disk.
    On the top menu, click 'Guide' for the steps required.

    Another good software is AVStoDVD.
    It uses the same (included) burning program as DVD Flick and is currently supported and regularly updated.

    FAVC is an older app that also includes a burning program.
    It's a simpler alternative to the others.

    In any case, buy decent media like 'Verbatim' branded disks - just don't use their 'Life' series.

    I think AVS2DVD and FAVC produce a nice balance of speed and quality if HcEnc encoder is selected.
    They all use ImgBurn - the best burning program around and AVS2DVD has an active thread going at the VideoHelp site if you ever need a response from the creator.

    So your saying that AVS2DVD is really a user friendly easy application for people who is new at burning dvd's?

    Does this program after its done burning work on all dvd players?

    AVS2DVD creates standard DVD movie files and burns them using ImgBurn.
    If you use consistently, known to be good media, like Verbatim Data Life or Taiyo-Yuden, then the disks will play on any standalone DVD player.
    Note that if you are in North America that you require NTSC video, - select that under the Main Menu, 'Preferences' > 'Video' > 'DVD Video Standard'.
    Good luck.
