Hi all. I'm here today to ask a question that might sound a little simple, but honestly, at this point I've wracked my brain and have been completely unable to find an answer.
I've been having issues with my laptop shutting down during video conversion. I've had my laptop checked out by a professional and had the inside cleaned of dust and other debris, and I use a cooling pad underneath the machine as well. Despite these efforts, the laptop still shuts down whenever I am working on video conversion, trying to make a DVD that can be played in a standalone DVD player.
My question, then, is this: If I have an AVI file (which 99.9% of these files are), is there any way to write them to a disc without converting them to another format first? It seems to me that at this point I am unfortunately unable to convert video files (unless I can find another program to do that -- I've been using ConvertXtoDVD 4, and that is definitely *not* getting alongf with my laptop AT ALL.)
I know that with IMGBurn, you can write an ISO file to a disc. Would it be possible for me to create an ISO from the AVI files I have, and then burn that image to a disc that can then be played in my standalone player?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
