.avi is a windows format file which contains audio and video.

You can't play these on a dvd player but you can get software that can convert the .avi file to an appropriate format which can they be burned on to DVD allowing you to play it on a standard DVD player.

Can you recommend any good software that can do this, preferably freeware/shareware?

Sorry, don't really know any good freeware\shareware software that can do the convert.

I'm sure someone on this forum will know. Although this may be of interest as I did a search on the forum and found this:
