Hello, I am new to writing DVDs. I have recently downloaded a tv series which comprises of AVI files at about 350MB per episode. I wish to write these onto a DVD so that I can play them on a DVD player and watch them on TV. Since many episodes will fit on one DVD I also want a menu so I can select which episode I want to watch. Can you guys give me nice step-by-step instructions on how to do this or direct me to someone who can?

I appreciate any help that you can give.

You have to use a DVD authoring program like Nero Vision Express or Pinnacle or something of that nature to convert your video files into DVD format. Keep in mind that's going to re-encode your compressed AVIs into MPEG2 video which will take up a lot more disk space. If you're using 4.7GB DVD discs then at most you'll only be able to fit 2 or 3 episodes per DVD.

The alternative is to use a DVD player that can natively read AVI DivX/XviD files directly from a standard data disc.
