Lightbulb DVD: .avi & .mpg to DVD

Couple Questions:

I have some movies I want burned onto DVD Discs. I have a ton of .avi files and a few .mpg movie files.

How do i go about burning these files onto a DVD+R and have them work on a standard home DVD player? Do I need to convert these files to some other format before I burn them to DVD's? If so, what program will I need, ( I'm sure there are many,) to transfer, and what (if they need to be,) do they need to be transfered to?

What is the file structure of a home-made DVD from files like these? Can I just put however many files on a dvd and stick it in the player?

Thanks a lot,

Blake

Pinacle studio 8. Got it free with my dvdrw working good. You import the file in and export it into VOB files etc and it'll even burn the dvd for you
