Hey i'm looking to convert an avi file to dvd so i can burn it onto my dvd+r.

I know there are various converters but which ones are recommended by you lot?

I'm using Windows XP profession. How do i determine the speed of my DVD writer?

AVI Type 1 and Type 2 (.avi)
QuickTime movies (.mov, .qt). These require the free QuickTime Player version 5.x or later -- you can download the latest version from click here
Windows Media Video (.wmv). MyDVD only supports WMV files that are not copy-protected

It doesn't mention it can convert from .avi to dvd format. Can it?

Are there any free ones that are worth lookin at?

if you do avi to dvd a lot then sonic is worth the money, others can probably advise you better as to free software for one off's
