Burning AVI files


Batman
 Share

Question

When I am burning DVD's, basically copying an AVI file from my hard drive to a blank DVD, the DVD that I make is only watchable on a computer. It will not play back on a standard DVD player. What do I need to correct this issue?

Again, this seems to be a problem in working with the AVI files. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program numerous times. I have dine it in safe mode, regular mode, etc.

Any ideas???

Thanks.

There is no problem working with avi files to create a DVD that will play on a standard DVD player. The problem seems to be how you went about it. You cannot simply copy files to a DVD and expect to play them on the DVD player. The video has to be rendered to the compliant DVD format that the DVD player can understand. You do this using the program myDVD which you reach from the C2010 home page by selecting Create DVDs.

Which application in Creator 2010 do you use to burn the AVI file to DVD? Provide details, please. It sounds like you're just burning a data file to DVD. If that's the case, the stand-alone DVD player will not recognize it. The file must be burned in such a way it is DVD-compliant.

I was just using the MyDVD function. How does one go about burning it so that it is DVD compliant?

 

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your response. Perhaps I am not using the program correctly. Once in MyDVD, I drag the AVI file onto the appropraite window and then proceed to burn. That or I drag the file directly onto the drag to disc icon. in any case, it will then burn a DVD that I can view on my laptop, but not on a DVD player. Any suggestions as to what I might do differently.

Thanks again for your help, it is greatly appreciated.

What Drag to Disc icon? What appropriate window?

 

After launching myDVD, select Add New Movie in the Menu Tasks panel to add your avi file

Dragging a file to the Icon on the desktop does not create a 'video disc'. It creates a 'data' disc and can not be played on a DVD player.

 

Open MyDVD

Select DVD and wait for the main menu to appear.

In the upper left corner, click on 'Add Video/Images'

Select your AVI and click OK

That should create a menu with a button to play the video.

Now click Burn (Button with Red Flames)

That (the myDVD) is how I was attempting to do it. Unfortunately, the disc it creates will not play on my, or any other DVD player, only on other computers.

Walt,

 

Rather then clicking "add new movie" and then the file, I merely drag the file to be added onto the window within MyDVD.

Now getting most of the way thru the burn, but getting this error message;

Failed to start the image writing operation Error while Burning Image

80004003 Error while Aborting
