Thumbs up-2 Burning to DVD

hello all, i wonder if anyone can help me? my wife and I have a number of videos we have saved from the net and stored them in windows media player 11,we want to burn these to dvd if thats possible? We have tried doing this but it keeps saying that they are not proper video files. Is there any way that we can watch them on our dvd player. As you can tell we are both newbies so sorry about our ignorance.

What is the extension at the end of the file name? EG: .VOB, .AVI, etc.

No, in order to play on a DVD player, they need to be VOBs.

Convert them to DVD format using DVD Flick or SUPER (both freeware).

I use Verbatim DVD+R. You should read and implement the Golden Rules of Burning.
