    Hi guys! I have a very old foreign film I need to burn onto a DVD. Right now it's in two parts - a first part .avi and a second part .avi. The subtitles are .srt for the first part and .sub for the second part (so four files altogether with two video files and two subtitle files).

    I have a PS3 that can read computer type files and has worked for other movies and things I've burned onto DVDs and even CDs, but apparently it won't show the subtitles in these files so I need to convert it or something. I am trying in iDVD but it's not letting me put the .srt or .sub files in there.

    What is the easiest way to do this? I'm not very technically proficient, so please use layman's terms, thanks!

    FFmpegX can handle handle joining your avi files, and converting your joined AVI into a DVD with your subtitle file. They also have howtos on how to do it:
