I recently bought a bunch of dvd-r's. The dvd-r's say 120min video, 4.7gb, 1-16x speed. I thought it would be a simple matter to copy and paste my .avi files onto the dvd, but nooo, it won't work. What am I supposed to do? I'm a super newbie, so please be specififc when you walk me through it, thanks.

Also, they say it's 120min video, 4.7gb capacity. Does that mean if I put 120 mins worth of video on the dvd, I can't put any more on there regardless of how much space is left?
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).

See if one of these articles will help:
Basic Guide How to Convert AVI Files to DVD with Avi2DVD
Basic AVI to DVD conversion using TMPGEnc+ (including Audio Sync Correction)

If one of those 2 aren't acceptable, here's a list of 53 guides, with most using freeware.
Take your pick. :thumbsup:

Thanks TG, but I'm a complete newbie. I have no programs for conversion. The ones I tried, didn't work for some reason like non-standard framerate. The .avi files are various ripped shows and movies I downloaded. All I want to do, is put these .avi files on some dvd-r discs to clear up some space so that when I want, I can put them in and watch them on my laptop. I don't care about getting it to work on a dvd player, I just want to clear up space.

What is the simplest way to do this?

You should just be able to burn them, as a data disk.
The same as you do, when you back up your personal information.
Then, if they play on your computer now, they should play from the disk.

What burning software do you use?

The 120 min refer to if you make a video DVD for DVD-players. If all you want to do is make a data DVD then only the 4.7GB matters. Just use a burning program, like DeepBurner, to burn the files to the DVD.

Thanks Alpha. Right now I am making a data disc with some of those files. It's going to probably take 30 mins or so. I will update if it actually worked.

update: you da man Alpha! It worked! Thanks a bunch! :thumbsup:
