    Hi guys,

    I'm afraid that this is beginning to be a bit of a pulling hair out job for me.

    Hope someone can help..............
    here goes:

    Athlon 1200
    512mb
    win xp

    I have been trying for a week now using varios software to author a dvd that actually plays in a dvd player.

    Unfortunately, the best I have managed to achieve is perfect playback in an xbox and ps2 console!!!- this is not exactly what I had in mind, however.

    I though I had cracked it through the use of winavi convertor but, alas, although this software allows playback in dvd player it produced extremely choppy playback which means that it really isnt a viable option.

    I have used dvdsanta , cce encoder, canopus procoder ( too slow ), tmpgenc ( too slow ), dvdlab, tmpgenc 1.6 dvd author, nero 6, cucosoft ( too slow ), sonic mydvd, diko and avi2svcd.

    I can convert avi files to mpg and then to .ifo, .vob, etc, this is no problem- the only problem I have is that despite everything, no matter what I try, I have not been able to produce a working dvd ( in a standalone player at least) with any of this software (many types of dvds -+ have been used-and wasted!) apart from winavi ( which produces very choppy results that the ps2 in particular does not like ).

    Any help would be greatfully appreciated, as I do not really want to turn bald !

    Thanks guys,

    p.s: I hope that with your help, my entire stockpile of dvds will not end up as coasters.

    Let me get this straight what you trying to do is make a backup of a dvd that you own

    Hi Swenyb,

    'nice quote from Aristotle'.

    Just to let everybody know that, and I am sure you are all going to laugh at me..... the problem was that the standalone player which I based the majority of my tests on needed the use of a DVD lens cleaning disc..... plain and simple!!

    Sorry to waste anybodys time... The moral of the story is therefore this: before wasting too many discs when testing your output for the first time, it would be wise to ensure that your damned DVD player lens wasn't dirty - I certainly won't be making this mistake again!
