Newest newbie byrning .avi to dvd disc

[qanda]This thread is about the Toshiba Satellite A210-287. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Howdy,

The newest newbie diving into converting .avi and burning to dvd discs. I’ve tried burning with several softwares (DVD Movie factory, Allock, Koyote, ImgBurn) all with the same result. Starts writing to disc and get same error “Ivalid address for write”.

On a Toshiba Satellite A215
Burner is a pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k17lf
discs are DYNEX DVD+R

I searched your site before I asked the question in case some other person asked. In the mean time I am trying a different type/brand of discs.

Can you guys help me out?

Are you trying to convert to dvd-video, or are you just burning the avi straight to the disk?

Try again with ImgBurn and set the burning speed to 4 or 6x. Then go get some good disks, like Verbatim 16x, but again, don’t try to burn at Max speed.
