Question about saving/burning NON-copywrited avi's etc

This question relates to the saving and/or burning NON-copywrited avi/mov files. I searched for information but, if its there, I missed it.

If this violates any DVDtalk site policy please let me know and I will delete this topic.

Thanks.

Wanting to learn a centerpin casting method, there exist two short instruction (avi type) files on a couple of sites I would like to download to my hard drive and probably burn onto a dvd so I can look at them on a portable player streamside rather than to have to look at them on my pc. These files do not appear to be copywrited and the site owners are the ones who directed me to the files.

I can't seem to find a way to do this.

Suggestions?

AGAIN, if this violates ANY site policies, please either remove this topic or tell me and I will do so.

Thanks for your help.

There's no problem discussing that type of material.

It appears you just need a DVD authoring program to convert the avi's to mpeg2 and create the DVD disc structure.

X, thanks. Don't know anything about those, can you tell me of a couple? How does one save the avi file? When then download and run I see no "save to" type option.

Nero 6, the full install using more than just the first setup file will install a program called Nero Vision Express which can convert an avi to a dvd. Menu, chapters, the whole nine yards

There is a free version of VSO DivxToDVD out there that converts AVI's into files you can burn and play on your stand alone DVD player.
