Default Burning DVDS!

Man, I tried like so many software stuff to convert or burn dvds with and nothing works. Like i managed to convert with AVI DVD burner and burn it but it only plays the sound and not the video in 1 of my DVDS, and the other dvd player doesnt even read it. This is complicated
Most of my videos that I want to burn to dvd is in AVI format though.

stupid question::
Is it a DVD burner? I made a mistake of thinking the player would burn as well and It did not.

ok lol. Well im using Nero right now. It gave me the Choice 3 choices for burning Video. The only dvd choice it had to be in DVD format. But other choices Super Video or something lol. Those say it convert it to a dvd. But it doesnt look like its allowing me to burn dvd cds. Just regular cds. ugh why is burning making a dvd so hard lol
So if i Choice the High Quality Dvd first, I have to find a program to convert it to dvd format. Which I did. But it didnt turn out right on my dvd players lol ugh

if you dont mind paying or "getting" this software from a certain site then its great. its called "winavi". you choose the avi, convert to dvd format, burn with nero. takes under an hour to convert and burn and i havent had any problems
edit: this program has built in nero support and uses nero express and is all set up to burn with a dvd so its well worth a go

Nero 7 works great for me whether I be ripping DVDs or converting AVIs to DVD formats. DVD Decrypter is a good program too (Best part is, it's free).

That wouldn't help with creating DVDs out of avi files and such.

ok heres my problem. It has Video Cd. Super video cd and dvd-video files.
Now the first 2 choices. it says it will convert my files to dvd format.
But,
It will only work with regular cds. Not dvds. and i cant find the option to change that.
Now the softwares i have found to convert. Ive tried. And they dont work on any of my dvd players because the third option doesnt convert. It only takes the dvd files
But whoever said it will play avi? Ill try that right now!

You need separate software to convert the file to DVD format, and then you can burn it with Nero.

For a free, legal conversion tool, you can follow this guide:

Freestyler105 do they really have a 8900GTX or you just lying? lol

Alright WinAVI worked good. My dvd player reads it thanks dude_se
It reads it but, the screen is a little to big for my tv screen and it gets glitchy, like it freezes for a 1 sec ever 5 secounds that gets kind of annoying lol

Just to finish. The Philips DVP 642 dvd player will play avi movies.You don't have to convert them to any other format,and you can burn the avi on a cd(as long as the avi fits on a cd).If you can't find that particular player,any dvd player that plays divx will work.This dvd player isn't particular if you burn stuff on dvd-r,dvd-rw,dvd+r or dvd+rw.I had alot of avi files and just found that it was easier to buy a player that would play that format than the trouble it is to convert, than wonder if your dvd player will play it or what it will look like if you do get it converted.Just my two cents worth

You shouldn't be using the computer while it converts, that might make it glitchy.

They're supposed to come out with an 8900GTX soon, it's not out yet. That's why it says Planned at the top.
