Hi all,

First of all I hope I'm posting in the right forum!! Anyway, I am the using Nero StartSmart 'Burn DVD-Video Files' to try and create a DVD that will play in a DVD player from a .avi file. The problem is that when I drag the file I want to burn in the appropriate section the 'burn' option is not highlighted. I then tried the 'Make Video CD' option; in this case the file is then too large for the blank DVD disc.

Could it be i need to convert the .avi file to a different one?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks.

Sorry I don't have any specifics for you, but I found these 4 articles that discuss .avi to DVD using Nero.
There might be some information in there that you can use.

Sefy's DVD Backup Guide v2.6
How to convert an NTSC (23.976 fps) XviD file to a PAL DVD
How to create Anime DVD's from MKV, OGM, and AVI files
How to convert DivX to DVDR using DVD2SVCD

If none of these help, try searching the site I got the links from, videohelp.com, as there's a load of information on CD/DVD burning and conversions.
This is a great resource site for anything video related.

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply - with your help I managed to find out what I had to do! I found out on videohelp.com that if i updated my Nero package then I most likely would be able to burn the DVD I wanted and it worked!

Thanks alot. :thumbsup:
