What are you using to convert from AVI to DVD (VOB files)?
Need some help from a novice

I just started downloading and burning my own DVD's (old cartoons, etc for my daugther). I have run into a problem though. I have tried Roxio, and a few other products for burning DVD's, but when I burn the DVD and play it on computer or on tv, I get sound but no video. I get what appears to be lines that move that resemeble a screen saver. My daughter calls the the Funkadelic Disco lights from an old 60's movie.

What am I doing wrong? All the files are AVI's.
