    Nothing about DVD burning here. Nice and simple. I downloaded last Friday's "episode" of Smackdown from isohunt in full-length AVI form and it wouldn't play. In anything. I tried WMP, WMP2, NeroMP, and RealPlayer. None of them could do anything with it. The player would get an error and give me the "Send"/"Don't Send" prompt and close. I tried to convert it from AVI to MPEG but that program did the same thing. So I assumed it was the file. I deleted it and downloaded the show again in RAR form this time. I put it back together and had the exact same problem with the second video. I don't know what this could possibly be. Help?

    maybe you don't have the codec.

    Also which program are you trying to use to watch it?

    Media Player Classic works good for watching .AVI

    More than likely it's in either divx or xvid format. If you get the K-lite mega codec pack (Google it) you should be able to play anything. If you still can't play divx properly (You get a picture with funny lines) then you can get the divx codec by itself.
