Burn .avi files to DVD

Question

I am using Roxio Creator 2010 Pro and trying to burn .avi movies from my hard drive to a dvd. The .avi files were my sons TV shows that may need to be compressed to fit as they are more than one show of a series. I used to use Roxio Creator 2009 copy & convert, and had no problem doing this. Since moving to Windows 7 the 2009 version wasn't compatable so I bought the 2010 version. It locks up or just doesn't start the copy. I have tried reinstalling the software.

You will have to explain a bit more exactly what you want to do and how you are doing it. Do you just want to copy the avi files to a DVD as data? Do you want to create a video DVD that can be played on a DVD player? Are those DVD avi files or DivX avi files?

File size means nothing when creating video DVDs, it's the timelength of the video that is important. A standard 4.7GB DVD will hold 60 minutes of video at best quality. Any longer and the video has to be compressed to fit with a resulting loss of quality.

 

BTW, C2009 runs just fine on W7. You may be having other problems with your system

The files I am trying to convert are avi files and I'm trying to burn them to a dvd to make them playable in a dvd player. Not sure about original being a divx or not.

 

The compatability checking utility from Microsoft said that I would have problems with Creator 2009 in Windows 7. I tried to load it after loading windows 7 and it wouldn't load. If you think this would work and I can just use Creator 2009, my problems would be solved as I have used it many times and know how to use it.

Did you install Service Pack 4 for EMC 2009?

 

I'm sure I'll feel stupid for asking but what is EMC 2009. Is it the 2009 Version of Roxio Creator. If so, I don't think I installed the update. I did instal Roxio 2010 though. Maybe if the 2009 version works with Windows 7, I could use the 2010 version on my desktop and reinstall the 2009 version on my desktop?

That was a typo on gi7omy's part - I am sure he meant Roxio Creator 2009, there is no EMC 2009 only a EMC 9 which is now 3 versions back. The latest update for Roxio Creator 2009 is SP4. C2009 should work with Windows 7.
