Converting MP4 video to AVI

I used get iPlayer to download three TV programmes in the Transatlantic Sessions series. They all played beautifully on my Windows 7 Pro PC, but when I made copies on DVD, my Toshiba player would not accept them. I think this is because they are MP4 videos. I assume they need converting to AVI format. But how do I do this, please? Is there a free (and SIMPLE-TO-USE!!) programme that will do the job? I really want to keep these super 30 minute shows to play when I want to, from the comfort of an armchair -- no room for one of those in my PC corner.... And yes, I DID miss the original TV shows AND the catchups..... Get iPlayer is a brilliant free app, incidentally, though it's quite a steep learning curve at first.

firegamp, I got 2 of the Transatlantic Sessions last night, Your best bet for compatibility with your Toshiba player (mine will only play Film type DVDs, It hates Video Files, even though it says it will) would be to Burn them as a Film type DVD.

I have tried a few programs this morning, The best and Cheapest (It's Free) is this WinX DVD Author, Instructions are on the same Page under the User Guide Tab.
