Hi hoopsman!

The problem is that your DVD Player cannot play files in the avi format. Not many yet can because they do not have the appropriate codecs to decipher them. My DVD player plays some, but still has some issues with some codecs like Qpel. I suggest you download a program like ConvertXToDVD It costs $40, but is well worth the money because it not only converts practically any media file into DVD format (aka the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders), but also burns them to a DVD as well.
