Hey, for christmas i was debating what type of a DVD burner I should buy. I'm new so I have 2 questions:

1- What is the best speed for an external dvdburner thats under $100?

2- I have a lot of .avi format video's; will I be able to burn them to a dvd and play them properly or do they have to be an .iso format?

thanks in advnaced

I will probably buy from www.supergooddeal.com and there are a bunch that say 16x and 18x : is this referring to different features?

Also - im sure it will come with software but can you generally burn avi formats - or get freeware that does it?
