Batch Renaming Script

I am very new to using MS-DOS as a scripting language so please forgive my (hopefully) easy question. What I am trying to do is take all the files in a folder that are of the following specific format and rename the file slightly (add some periods to it). Below are the details

Input file format
Text with Spaces (01032011).avi
Output file format
Text with Spaces 01.03.2011.avi

"Modern Family (01032011).avi" is renamed to "Modern Family 01.03.2011.avi"

This will need to be done automatically i.e. a windows schedule task can run it every 30 minutes.

Thanks so much!!
