File / Folder Structure?

I used #1 DVD Ripper along with DivX Codec 4.12 to rip a copy of a movie. It has generated a group of avi files in the designated folder. The movie will play fine from that folder but when I burn the files onto a DVD (using Easy Media Creator 7 by Roxio) the resulting DVD won’t play on my stand-alone DVD player. I have tried DVD +R and DVD -R. In both cases they are high quality media.

Do the files need to be in particular folders to be recognized by the DVD player? Is there another step in this process that I am missing?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

is your dvd player supposed to be capable of playing divx?
