Downloaded Movies to TV

I have a number of movies downloaded onto an external Hard Drive that are in the .avi format. I also have a Phillips Ambilight TV with a USB input on the side. If I connect the Hard Drive then I can navigate the contents on the TV, but it says that there are no playable files. How can I convert these .avi files into something that will play on the TV?

BTW - I'm a techno-whimp, and need basic stuff. Please don't confuse me with long geeky words!

also the drive will probably need to be in FAT 32 or FAT format for the TV to see the files. You may also find that they have to be inthe root dir as well.
