    Long story short, I'm trying to make a 'video powerhour', I have 60 1 min long avi files along with several short 5-6 second clips to go between each longer file. I'm basically looking for a program (free) that can burn them to a DVD.

    btw, I've never done this before and know next to nothing about video editing so talking to me like I'm 5 years old would be just fine.

    Any video editing app or DVD maker should be able to do that.

    XP should come with Windows movie maker. You can open the app, switch to timline view and add each file in the order you want.

    if you have a mac, imovie will work pretty good. although it sqwacks at some video formats

    on a pc, i've used pinnacle and ulead video studio in the past. i liked the ease of nero vision express

    I think Camtasia is a really good video editor, but Windows Movie Maker is good enough for what you need. All you have to do is drag them all on timeline, then burn to a DVD.
