How to create a disk to view on VCR?

I have only a rudimentary understanding of video files, and there several different formats, so I’m kinda confused, hopefully someone can put me on the right track, as I am having a bit of difficulty working with video files.

The problem I’m having is that I have seven (7) .WMV files, with a total size of 1.87 GB, or approximately 279,000 KB per file, that I would like to put on a single disk so they can be viewed using a VCR.

Ideally, I would also like to add a menu type interface so you can select which video to watch.

But, how can I accomplish this?

What software (freeware preferred) will let me put the seven files on one disk with a simple menu interface?

I have tried both “DVD Flicker” and “DVD Styler” but neither will place the seven files on one disk.

Do I need CD software or DVD type?
Do I need blank CD disks, DVD-R disks or DVD+R disks? Does it matter?

Any help appreciated.

It is not possible to burn a disc to a VCR. Are you sure that is what you mean?

I probably have the terminology wrong.

I have a combination VCR/DVD/VHS player sitting atop my television and am looking for a way to copy/burn/transfer several .wmv files from my computer onto the correct type disk so I can view them on the VCR/DVD/VHS box.

As I posted, I have played around a bit, but am unable to find any software that will allow all the files on one disk.
I'm beginning to think it is not possible.

Thanks for the explanation. I have a program that was bundled with my HP DVDRW called Showbiz 2 and it does exactly what you are saying, you can make chapters, etc...but I don't know of a free prog that will do that for you, sorry

I think I'll just have to suffer with watching the .wmvs' on my computer.

Thanks.
