✔ Best Answer
You need burning software that can properly format the disc as a DVD video disc. Nero or Roxio Cd creator will both work. There is alo free software that can do this, do a Google search for DVD burning software and you will find a few programs. Don't just burn it as a data disc with an AVI file on it as your player probably can't decode whatever format the AVI is encoded as. Any burning software should also have the capability to erase your DVD-RW.

Also, many players don't like DVD rewritable discs so if you burn it in the proper format and it still doesn't play, try a DVD+R disc.

Which file format your DVD player supports is reported in its user's guide, but usually all models support mp2 and the most recent ones mp4. Be sure to finalize your burned files orherwise another player can't playback.

To erase your DVD+RW you have to re-format it again.

Are the movies playable on your computer? If Windows Media Player won't play them, install VLC Player: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/downloa...

If you're asking about a stand alone DVD player connected to a TV, the .AVI file would need to be converted to DVD format. There are plenty of free programs available that can do it. The conversion can take an hour or 2 per video & the results can be hit or miss depending on the source material. DVD Flick is an example: http://www.dvdflick.net/

As for how to erase, did you try going to Computer, then right clicking on the DVD-RW & selecting "erase this disc"?
