Thread: Burning DVD's question...converters?

  1. #1
    Hey,
    I recently bought a new lap top and can finally burn off some of my movies, etc to free up some space. The only problem is that the first movie I burnt didn't work as a DVD. I burnt it as a .avi file. How can I fix this? I've read about .avi to dvd converters. I guess I need to convert the file? If so, is there any decent free converter out there? Any response would be a huge help!
    Thanks!

    well, if you downloaded a movie, then you are not unfamiliar with pirating things, so go get winAVI 7. Dont use 7.1, it sucks. If there is a newer version, then test it for yourself. Or alternatively you could buy a standalone dvd player that plays xvid, then you can watch your movies burned as avi
    I will recommend the philips dvp-642

    By the way, I have a DVD burner. So, I don't need to burn a VCD.

    And thanks for the quick reply, I'll see if I can find winAVI 7 now...

    I liked DvdSanta but had a problem so switched to Xso convertxodvd nice program . Not as easy but I'm getting the hang of it and won't switch back . My new install disk Indego had a few to choose from but with Xso it was easy to find a working version .

    Tried WinAvi and Windvr Pro but like Xso better .
