    I'm not quite sure if this is the correct forum or not for this type of problem but since I'm using Nero Vision I'll post here.

    I've been using Nero Vision to combine 3 avi on 1 disk. I've done it successfully a dozen times, but the last 2 burns have been weird.

    What happens is the dvd-r will play but the audio doesn't match the video. It's like an old Japanese Godzilla flick!

    The audio is off by about 7 seconds. I'm using the same TY media as always & the avi plays fine on my PC before burning. So the AVI or media aren't the problem.

    Any idea what's going on?

    Had this problem with Nero where it had to convert PAL to NTSC.

    Try using the precursor to ConvertXtoDVD)to convert them.

    http://dl.afterdawn.com/vsoDivxToDVD_setup_v0.5.2b.exe
    Import the file(s) (AVI, MPEG, VOB)
    Output (standard DVD file format) to a folder on the HDD.
    Set 'Aspect' to 4:3 (if you have a regular tv)
    Set 'Standard' to NTSC (if you live in North America)
    Use Nero burning ROM to burn the files to DVD.
    Alternatively, burn with freeware, DVD Shrink + DVD Decrypter.

    You can load all your AVI files in one session and output them (VOB files to one folder).

    After I use VSO to convert the files should I still use Nero Vision so I can combine 3 avi into 1 dvd so I don't have a bunch of seperate discs?

    Afterall I'm trying to burn King of the Hill and I have 9 episodes.

    Is there any other program reccomended to combine a series or is Nero Vision the best way?

    Thanks again!

    You select six episodes of KOTH(~ two hours) bring them into VSO and convert them, they will all end up in the same folder as six VOB files.
    Bring the six VOB's into NERO Vision and it will create six menu items.

    You could probably get away with nine.Once you pass the two hour stage of course the quality falls off, but nine would probably be ok with cartoons..

    THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

    This was a problem that I was also having and it solved my problem. GREAT! FANTASTIC! I used converteX2DVD to convert the videos, then used nero vision to remove and replace the menu with the one I wanted then burned to DVD-RW, just to make sure it worked. IT DID. The process was quick and worked very well. Now I will simply copy the result to a DVD-R disc and all is well.

    When I think of all the times I have had a video/audio sync problem and just deleted the download because I could not correct the problem.

    AGAIN I SAY THANK YOU!!!!

    Another problem solved yet again by the friendly folks at the Afterdawn help desk!

    One more question :

    Now that I have the AVI in Video-ts format what is the best way to combine them. I have 2 separate video-ts folders.

    Do I still use Nero Vision or can I use Nero Burning Rom now?

    Also when using Nero Burning Rom which mode do I select? i.e. DVD-ROM (ISO) or DVD-Video et cetera.

    Thank you! I've learned a lot of things off this one thread!

    If you wish to process one folder,then use N.B.Rom .
    Note you will not have a menu with this method.
    Run 'Nero StartSmart' > 'Nero Burning ROM' > select 'DVD' from top left drop down menu.
    Select 'DVD Video' > 'New' .
    The left panel shows a 'Video' folder in red.
    Browse to the folder containing your video files, select all of the files in the 'Video_TS' folder and drag them into the red folder on the left panel.
    Your files will include VOB,IFO and BUP types.
    Click the 'Burn' icon and select a burning speed of 4x.Click 'Burn'.

    If you wish a Menu,use Nero Vision.
    Open one folder and load the VOB files.
    The first relevant file is VTS_01_1.VOB, then _2.VOB in order.
    Recall that you can only fill up the disk to a certain point, so you may be able to add more files from the second folder.
    Assuming each VOB is one episode, you will have one menu item per VOB unless you opt to merge a group during the loading process (the middle button on the left, beneath the red button)

    Uh oh! I ran into a bit of a snag!

    How to I combine the 2 video-ts folders? Nero Burning Rom won't let me and Nero Vision won't either because the size is too large.

    Can I use WinAvi to merge the original AVI files into one?

    Is there a method I can use to compress the vide-ts files so that Vision will accept them?

    Thanks again!

    More info.......

    Nero Burning Rom gives this message when I attempt to copy files to my compilation.

    A special entry already present on the target location. Original, Joliet or ISO file names can be identical. Cannot move 'VIDEO-TS.BUP' to new location.

    What size are the folders?
    Squeezing too much on one disk is going to degrade the quality (although cartoons may be acceptable).
    If I had to, reluctantly, I would use DVD Shrink in 'Re-author' mode.
    run DVD Shrink > Reauthor, open the folder using the right panel browser, select 'title 1' and drag it to the left panel.Repeat for the second folder and 'Backup!

    DVD Shrink
    http://www.mrbass.org/dvdshrink/
    Shrink will offer to burn with Nero (no menu) alternately you can open the output folder (from Shrink) in Nero Vision.

    Ok. I got it all fixed up! Here's what I did:

    1. Used WinAVIVideo to merge the files

    2. Used VSO DivxtoDVD to convert to VIDEO_TS

    3. Ran DVD Shrink to compress the files in the VIDEO_TS folders

    4. Used DVD Decrypter to burn the files to a DVD-R

    It was successful and the audio was in sync with the video. However the video quality was extremely poor as you mentioned it may be.

    I am going to use the DVD Shrink Re-Author tool as you advised.

    Will the "Perform deep analysis before backup to improve quality" option in DVD Shrink make a difference?

    Do I have the 4 steps above right or is there a fater reccomended method? I like everything besides the terrible picture quality.

    Sorry I forgot about something!

    In the DVD Shrink Re-Author mode : Can I take a series like the Sopranos and keep dragging "Title 1" of every episode into the DVD structure panel on the left?

    How many episodes should I drag over before picture quality becomes an issue?

    It seems that DVD Shrink Re-Author basically does the same thing WinAVIvideo does as far as merging files. Am I correct?

    Also where do you donate to Afterdawn at or can you?
    Thanks again!

    Two Sopranos episodes max.
    You cannot get around the running time issue.
    A single layer DVD is two hours of running time.
    Squeezing in more running time means lower quality.
