It takes about 1-hour to get a finished DVD disc, but the programs I use for the ABSOLUTELY BEST QUALITY movies that will play any AVI movie file on any DVD Player are XILISOFT AVI TO DVD CONVERTER v3.0.34 or higher, DAEMON TOOLS PRO v4.10 or higher, and IMGBURN v2.4.2 or higher. You can get the first 2 programs as bit torrents, or buy them from their websites. ImgBurn is available as shareware.
Using the Xilisoft AVI To DVD Converter, I simply convert the original AVI movie file to an ISO image, then burn the converted ISO image to a DVD disc using ImgBurn. There is no need to open Daemon Tools - it just runs in the background.
If you want to get really fancy, you can go to http://www.cdcovers.cc/covers and download the original DVD Cover and DVD Disk images to make your own collection.
