The Clash - Competition time

ok a bit of a competition of sorts.ive been given two clash gigs recently,the US festival from '83 and one from tokyo in ' i have them on the hard drive but they are files i dont understand like .bup etc.when i open the folder using VLC it works fine and i can select the chapters and everything but i want to be able to put them on a dvd and watch them on the t.v.what programme can i use to get them to do this?(the folder is labelled VIDEO_TS if that helps).on my wifes mac computer there is a programme called 'toast' that ive used to burn dvd's before but they were avi files.can i use this programme to do this?there is a selection option whereby you can make data disks or can turn the file into one that will play on all dvd players.ok as you can see i am very confused.the person that can send me a link for a very simple programme to convert these files into playable dvds along with instructions on how to use it will get a copy of these gigs(if they want them)on 2 seperate disks with cover art sent anywhere in the world.thanks very much and i hope to hear from someone very soon.hanx!

Megaupload problems

unfortunately megaupload is being a pain in the arse seems that the message 'file temporarily unavailable' is rearing its ugly head again.this is nothing to do with me,its a problem at their i can only suggest that you keep trying the links and hopefully normal service will be resumed as soon as is humanly possible.sorry for any inconvenience this is causing.
