It wasn't made clear in your post, so I wanted to make sure you know that AVI files will not play from a disc on a standalone DVD player. The file must be converted to the correct format before you burn it onto a DVD-R. The link below is an excellent resource for accomplishing this. There is free software and guides to help you.

unless you have a dvd player that plays straight divx or xvid or anything else that encodes to avi you won't be playing it on a dvd player unless you convert it to mpeg 2

what I use is nero vision express with the right plug ins and I start the program up and it converts and burns it for me.

I used to use tmpgenc but gave up on that cause it took 4 ever...but it's free and easy to use.

so you have options and the websites the others have posted are very helpful as well

great guys thanks for the info...i did use tmpgenc and it take forever. like 3 hours. but i was able to put it on DVD and what not but my dvd player cannot read dvd-r in any way. the player is really old....so i convinced the wife to update and get a new one.

And the good news is that even the cheapest ones will handle most formats even +R, +RW.

DON'T let the wife see this part!
If you burned at faster than 1x it may be a burn speed issue and not a -R issue. Most players will handle -R. My players don't like anything over a 2x burn speed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
