Default Burning various files onto DVD...

I have 37 gigs of old files on my new system that were transfered from my previous HD. I want to free up some space on my new PC before I start dumping new stuff into it, ie. video files etc. The types of files I have range from AVI to word docements to project files from Adobe Premiere etc. How would I go about burning these types of things to DVDs? What type of software do I need? Is there a way of selecting the whole folder that contains all of the info on it (37 gigs) and letting it burn it sequencially onto several disks? (When one is full, it pops out and the comp asks for another to burn more etc.) What should I do? I want a clean PC!!! LOL,

Don't know of any dvd writing software that will span across several discs until all the files have been copied. However, I do agree in recommending Nero. What I would do is create a series of new folders on the hard disk, fill them with the files you want to burn so that each folder is no more than 4.7gig (unless you've got a double-layer burner), then burn each folder to a separate DVD.
