Default How do you store .avi and .wmv files?

OK, at the risk of looking like a complete novice....

I have .avi and .wmv files on my computer. All I want to do is put them on storage so I don't have them clogging up my hard drive.

Simple question - how? Do I simply save the files onto on CD? Do they have to go onto a DVD disk?

Can I simply use explorer to save or should I use let's say Ashampoo software?

Do I need to convert or do anything else to the files before I save it?

I know this seems basic, but this always confuses me. Thanks for help.....
