What is the name of the actual Roxio program you're using?
I gather you're wanting to convert those files and burn them to a Video-DVD. Is that correct?
If so, the reason you're seeing those crossed-circle symbols is most likely because your system can't decode the AVIs - if that's what the files actually are.
AVI files are video which has been compressed by a video compressor of some sort, and put into an AVI container. To play or edit or otherwise use the AVIs you need to de-compress the video, and for this you need a decompressor which matches or can handle files made by the compressor which was originally used. The CO
ompressor software is called a CODEC.
If your computer used to be able to handle the same sort of files that you're working with, but now it can't, then the CODEC needed for them has been removed, disabled, or broken.
If your computer has never seen this type of file before, and it is an AVI, then the required CODEC isn't installed.
Would you please tell me which of those two alternatives applies?
We also need to know which compressor has been used to squash the video into the AVIs - if they are AVIs. [I can't tell, since you have your Windows set to 'Hide extensions for known file types']
Would you please download and install the GSpot Codec Information Appliance from Headbands, HERE.
It is a free, safe, and small program
-Run the program and then drag one of your files onto the GSpot window. The program will analyze your AVI and tell us what we need to know.
Here's a GSpot window showing an AVI I just dragged onto it. The interesting part is at the top right, and I've put a red box around it. It says the Codec used on this AVI was 'XVID' and that the necessary Codec(s) are installed.
What does GSpot show under those headings about your AVI files, please?
