    I am having a few problems with Avi2DVD, I have read the forum posts but I cant seem to find the solution. I follow exactly what the forum says and even after all is said and done, when I hit the 'Go' button, a message comes up saying that it needs at least 9 GBs to work. I have way more then that, but why does it need that for just one file? The file is only 350mb. Please help me.

    I don't like to put any program down, but I would switch to DVD Flick.
    It comes with a concise guide and generates a menu.
    Just make sure that you select the correct video type (NTSC or PAL).

    North America is NTSC.
    EU and Australasia is PAL.

    Things are good, thanks! Now another question, I have all the avi files for a tv show and I want to put each season on its own disk. Can I still do that with this program?

    If each episode is a separate file, then you can keep adding 'Titles' until the % bar on the left is full.
    Each 'Title' will show up on the menu as a separate choice.
    Note that an AVI file that is converted to DVD format, takes up much more space on the disk - after two hours of video is added, the DVD will be full.

    That makes sense yes, What I am trying to do here is to get each session on its own disk. Most of the sessions have 22 episodes to them, I have burned them as avi's but can only play them in my computer. After all is said and done, can I somehow combine each session, shrink it and put it on a dvd?

    For me, when it got to the point of converting 22 episodes, times six seasons, to DVD format, it was time to buy the $40 DivX player.

    So basically you are saying, suck it up and just buy a DVD player that will play avi disks? That makes sense yes, and considering there are dvd players out there, converting them is a waste of time.
