    I have recently realised that the 77 episodes of my favorite TV Series that I have had on videotape for about 10 years is physically deteriorating along with my 10 year old video player... the sound is getting garbled on tapes 3 and 4 already...

    Solution? Better copies (they were taped in the early days of OnDigital in the UK and there is quite an amount of interference on the tapes) onto disk.
    To that end I have managed to locate and download the entire collection (89 episodes) - approximately half are in flv files and the rest are avi files (details below). To arrange them in a play order would mean some flv files then a few avi files then another flv file, etc, etc

    The actual problem is that as I would prefer to watch them on television as opposed to watching them on the computer it seems to make sense to burn them to DVD's that would be playable on a DVD player.
    How do I do that? I am a complete Video Noob... After a weekend googling I arrived at Corel VideoStudio Pro and it looked to be the best thing I had seen since Friday but then I saw that it will take avi files as input but no flv.
    And as for the export, so far in my brief learning period, I was expecting VOB files - no mention.

    Help. Is this possible? Will Corel VideoStudio Pro be able to do it? If not, can anyone point me in the right direction..?

    Many thanks in advance

    You might be better-off with ConvertXtoDVD (cheaper and easier to use).
    If you want freeware, try DVD Flick.

    thanks usta - that DVD Flick looks like it might be good. I'll give it an installation...
