Converting Ripped AVI files

#1

I have been using ConvertXtoDVD 3 for the past few weeks and it has been working great. At least, for my downloaded movies. However, when I rip my old DVDs onto my computer and try and convert them, it doesn’t work. I get everything ready, and when I press “Convert” it shows the progress bar, and nothing else happens. No preview, no progression, nothing. The video is AVI format, so I don’t see what the problem is.

Thanks!

How and with what are you ripping your old ones?


#3

I’m using a program called Magic DVD Ripper and I have a DVD-R/RW drive.


#4

Magic will output dvd’s so why are you even using convertxtodvd on them?


#5

It does, but it doesn’t allow you to make menus like ConvertX.


#6

You should buy the movie and try again!

No help with illegal downloads!

Wow, thanks for automatically assuming I’m a pirate.

Try using formatfactory, its a free app that can convert video files to just about any format. Try converting your avi to maybe mpeg, and then use convertx2dvd. I had a similar problem with a couple of avi files once, and once I converted them to mpeg and then used convertx2dvd it worked fine.
