I did search the forums first and the internet, my questions seem to be different.
I downloaded a bunch of movies from the net, some convert beautifully, and burn onto DVD's with nice clear picture etc.
Some freeze my whole computer and I have to reboot (these usually say "AVI file broken would you like to repair it?" when playing on VLC media player, but I don't know how to save the file after I repair it.
Others say "MPG format not recognized, ignored." and they don't convert.
There is one other error I don't remember right now - file not recognized? It was so general - is there a manual of errors? Any ideas on what to do would be very helpful and appreciated as these movies are ones I have not been able to rent or purchase.
THANK YOU very much.
