I recently bought a new PC and, for the first time have acces to some DVD burning technology.
I have downloaded some .AVI files and have attempted to create a DVD to play on my home player.
Some of these files have worked fine using Windows DVDmaker. However, with some I get an error message saying that the .AVI file is not valid or is corrupted.
In all cases the files have played fine on the PC.
Following some admittedly limited research, I found a utility that converts the files to an .mpg format. (It also creates a bunch of other files such as .ifo and .vob)
This file will now load into Dvdmaker and the dvd will burn, however that audio is now out of sync when the disc is played. Again the file (not the disc) plays fine on the PC.
I guess my question is twofold.
Is there any solution to the original file not loading into Dvdmaker?
Failing that, is there a workaround to the sync issue.
Please bear in mind that I am a novice when it comes to working with video, but any assistance would be gratefully received.
Many thanks for you time
