OK After reading all the threads this is all I have to say!
Thank you to everyone who took their time to help everyone!
But there are so many prog’s and methods given can someone pls give details on the quickest/best/detailed instructions to go with.

No I am not stupid....But logically why would I go and d/l everyone that was stated and told to read the guide if certain ones do not work!

Instead I am asking for an update of this information.
Thank you!

As well as for those who think that it is cool and funny to point out peoples pc weakness’s thats sad!Some people have very busy lives/jobs that prevents then from sitting infront of their pc 24/7 and learning all the tricks!
So we either read the manual (which some are of no help and miss out the actual "Details")
So instead we look towards people that have talent to teach those of us that need it! reply



OK I Have the Winavi and the registration does not work it just tells me that the prog will shut down to apply the reg. and then when I reopen it it still tells me to buy or reg.
Is there a new one that i need?

And any takers willing to answer the previous question>? reply


okay i use winavi to convert,then ner to burn but when i watch the movies on my dvd player the look dark to me. does any one else have this or am i just crazy? if it is happening to you and you have a solution please let me know thanks reply


Buddies and Girlies,

this Thread is developing into an all-spoiler!

Please keep your failed crtiticism of people who know a lot and are willing to share that knowledge to yourselves.

As in the Beginning of all this, the guy who taught us all how to exactly burn avi’s to DVD, those 'Know-A-Lots' are very friendly, also in their use and display of language and overviewable style.

Reading your last posts here, I saw clearly that you lack this transparency of understanding.
Things like 'intelligent' or 'stupid' don’t exist.
It’s how you make evry little step of thought.

I hate my PC, although I love it. I know a lot more that ordinary people about PCs, but am still often frustrated.

It’s how one forms a phrase of thought or speech.
“That and this is bullsh..." for example is a
very rudely constructed phrase, neverminding the BS-word, only because of it’s banality.
Nothing IS bullsh... or 'right' or 'wrong' - it
depend on how deep you understood it. reply



download Divx To DVD and use 2 find the serial to register
otherwise u will have a “nag” (an anoying little thing trying to get you to buy the full thing) in the middle of the screen when u play the movie

next use it 2 convert your .AVI files 2 DVD files (they Will work on all dvd players)
i found an option that lets u choose the size u want 2 make it after it converts, very handy if u want 2 put it on a CD,
then u burn it using the converter or using nero,watever u prefere and u r done, all that is left is 2 sit back and enjoy ur DVD
it worked well for me reply


I have resently got ares and have downloaded a movie that i would like to burn to a cd, but i cant figur out how. When i moved the file from ares over to windows media player it could play it fine, but when i put it on the burn list it said codec eror - COOD1199 and it wouldn’t let me burn it. I have been unable to get any video fom ares onto a disc. Please help. reply


i have been reading all these posts. i have got the program x to dvd. i downloaded my movie and here is what i see. a pile of files ending in .r41 .r42. and then i have a pile of rar file that are avi files. the thing is they are all in order. the rar files(avi) are numbered the same way but they are the low numbers like 00 - 30 and the high numbers are not avi files and arent zipped. someone tell me what this is and do i need all these files. convertxtodvd does not recognize the non avi files.

redfish reply



to add to my earlier post i have begun unzipping the rar files. well one. it sounds like the audio to the movie. when i try and unzip the next or any of the next ones it asks me if i want to replace the previous one. help please

redfish reply


are they the same file name??? reply

look, very simple, use winavi to transform into dvd, then just go to dvd shrink and burn it “using nero”

boom done. reply



I don’t know about winavi, but let me tell you if you want to covert avi to dvd and burn at the same time, use ConvertXtoDVD v2.0.1.101

I found this and all you is put a blank DVD into the drive, drag the avi into the proggy and it converts and burns i about an hour. Done, nothing else. reply


Redfish i agree, ConvertXtoDVD is the simplest converting program to use reply


okay ive been burning for a few months but my movie comes out dark( and if this makes sense but i can see the pixels in my tv.does this have to do with codecs? do i gotta brighten it up with my nero,on a smaller tv its better but its still crappy. i usually watch movies on a 53 inch would that make a difference. reply


Dl a movie in a wierd format containing 2 cd’s ( CDInfo: 2CD/5.1 AC3/XViD WS, swep3a.001 -039, not avi or vcd. ). I tried, Win Avi, Divx to Dvd, Dvd Shrink and Nero but all (win avi may be broken) no luck. How and what are these files? Thanks again in advance. Oh ! and I had to Dl vso Divx to Dvd again(using a serial#) and I’m not sure it’s at 100% working properly. Two movies I DL and burned using VS0 Divx to DVD had the frames vertically rolling :( I even re- downloaded them but got the same problem. VSO did do ok with some TV Eps I DL. Any help will greatly be appreciated. :) reply


I just bought a new computer and it came with nero 6. Im trying to burn a dvd i downloaded off of limewire. Its in avi format. I have dvd shrink and winavi I convert it and everythimg but when I burn it it wont play in my home dvd player. It tells me playback feature not available. Please help I just wont to watch it on my tv for my kids!!! Thamks so much any help would be greatly apprecited. reply


Okay, this post just keeps on going, and like the folks who posted a year ago (well before I had discovered this posting) I too have been struggling with this whole concept. I have been using the whole TMPG process (converting to MPEG, then converting to .vob, then burning with NERO). While this process worked well, it was taking about 10-12 hours to convert a movie. I knew there had to be a better way, but my computer didn’t want to cooperate. I loaded about 5 different alternative programs, all of which were recommended in various posts. Whatever the reason very few of these programs would actually work on my computer - most would start up when asked and once loaded, would just shut down without allowing me to do anything. Not knowing anything about computers and potential conflicts, I just kept searching. I was about to download a copy of DVD Copy4 the other night, when I discovered I had a copy of DVD Santa already handy, so I loaded that program and presto, I started making DVD copies of my movies and TV shows instantly and in virtually no time. I took 4 forty minute TV shows and put them on one DVD, and the process took 3 hours from start to finish! I don’t know if it’s just my computer and my luck or if DVD Santa is that good, I highly recommend it! reply


hey Elshiznit0, can yo email me with some detailed instructions on this process (.avi to dvd conversion)? I missed American idol last night because my car broke down, so I’m downloading it. I would greatly appriciate your help, thanks.

ok, the first thing and only thing is its not simple. I’ve been playing with movies on the comp for about 7 year’s, and i learn new stuff everyday.
ok, you’ll need at least 3 pragrams. Of course tmpg express{well known god of conversion progs}
a dvd authoring prog{i suggest tmpg dvd author}
and a dvd burner software.

Essentially you take your. Avi file and convert it With tmpg to an mpeg2 which is the standard for dvd.

then authoring it builds the files and folders to put on the dvd in the format and order needed.

Then simply burn it, if using tmpg dvd author and nero 6, it will burn itself when done authoring.

Ok so that’s the simple basics, i have a process i finally got right in which you can fit 3-4 converted .Avi’s on one dvd-r. With good sound and video bitrate as long as you have good source files.

If anyone wants these instructions just e-mail me, or i may post them on here if enough ppl want them.
