i used one of the files once before. i have an alienware area 51-m. i believe i may have been sold one of the few defective machines for a few reasons, one including system instability. part of that is due to an conflict between the ati gfx card and the mother board. although im not entirely sure why that is. any way, i have used one of the files once before, however due to the systems instability i never had a chance to finish the burn because of a total system shut down. i lost a disc as well, but i have a stack of roughly 20 left, so im not too worried about that.
i can try to uninstall all of the encoders/decoders i have on the system at the moment and reinstall them if theres a chance it would help. i have no problem with that. honestly, i want a replacement computer, but im not sure if they will. however i do believe they should considering the fact ive had problems with it litterally since the third or fourth day ive had it out of the box.
but aside from that, theres no difference in any settings or any thing. its the same version of MyDVD, i have the most up-to-date drivers/software for my ati card, though im not sure if that makes a difference or not. i also have the latest encoders and what have you from xvid, but like i said, i can try to uninstall and reinstall them all if theres a chance of fixing this bug or glitch or issue or whatever the problem is.
by the way, it may be irrelevant, but the files im attempting to burn to dvd are all .avi files, yes, but all are in the 350+ mb range of file size. ive never really had a problem with the transcoding or burning for that matter, the only problem i did have was the system itself with its instability... which shouldnt be a problem in the first place considering i spent almost three grand on the system.
...im beginning to think it was a poor investment, but then again, when its stable enough to operate properly, i use the system for work-related software and processes. but since the reinstall of windows, i havent had a chance to find the orrigin of the problem to even attempt at installing/running any work related programs.
