    hi all..

    i have converted 4 avi files with winavi then used dvd shrink to make 1 complete dvd. ( 4 episodes of st voyager ).
    my question is when i burn using ashampoo burning studio it takes about 20-30 mins to complete and works fine.
    when i burn and use nero vision because i have also created my own menus to add to the final dvd with what each episode is etc it still works fine but why does it take 2 hours to burn.
    please help me, i would realy like to add my own persoanl menus so i no what each episode is etc but its taking far 2 long to copy..

    again big thanx and look forward to your replies in helping me out.

    regards
    mick

    I read in your message that you want to add your own menus. but if you are not bothered about menu creation the best program i have found to convert is convert x to dvd. I have receently converted six episodes of a telvision show on to a 4.7 gig dvd disc and i could still play it on my dvd player each episode was 45 minutes long.you can also add your own gif,jpeg and a few other formats and change your font style but i dont think you can add animated menus. i hope this helps a little bit

    you say burn with nero do you mean encode avi to dvd AND! burn takes 2 hours? [just burn at 4x about 12 mins? any app...]

    --------------------

    like you know some apps are faster than others, i also rate ConvertXtoDVD as awesome with basic menu, oh by the way i use 6x avi at 350meg each to dvdr with basic menu, would even try 7x next go me thinks...

    hi, if i convert from avi to dvd 4 epidodes takes roughly 20mins, then using dvd shrink i convert all 4 into 1 . all that is ok but when i go to burn the dvd that was made from dvd shrink at 4x it's between 2-3 hours to copy.

    indeed m8 thats exactly what i was thinking, but its only that long if i add menus from within nero. if no menus then burn time is usually about 15-20 minutes. i dont mind not having the manus in it but i would prefer to have them

    Hello????
    Can any one show me how to configure this settings in the AVI2DVD by trust FM. Its where it says Choose AudioStream. Mine is blank. Nothing at all in all the three options. Any clues, please?

    avi2dvd is very buggy, so i use TFM (The FilmMachine - free app also) now which has better succes rates...

    check that file in GSPOT dude it may not have audio then?
