Sonic Mydvd - Convert Avi Files - Need Codecs?



Using Sonic myDVD Plus, I am trying to convert AVI files and burn them to a DVD so that I can play them using my DVD player. I did the following:

1. Click "Create Project"

2. Click DVD

3. Click "Add files"

4. Select the AVI file


Then I received the following message: "One or more files could not be imported: The software that's used to decode the media is not available on this system. Installing the correct decoders for the files you are working with may help to correct the problem."


There was no other explanation of the problem. How do I get around this problem and successfully convert an AVI file to a DVD-readable file? Do I need to download some codecs? If so, which ones and how?


Additional information:

- VLC media player plays the AVI files on my PC (Windows XP).

- When Windows Media Player (version 10) opens one of the AVI files, it plays only the audio, not the video. It displays the following 3 messages: connecting / locating codec server / error downloading codec.

- I ran a codec finder program that said that the codec used for the movies is XVID MPEG-4.

- I bought Sonic about 3 years ago. I think that it is version 2.0.2.
