    scott039, i think you need to go and have a read of the forum rules before you post.You seem to have violated this one by posting here and also in the cdr forum.Please refrain from doing so in the future

    as to your question concerning converting avi to mpeg.First of have you got a program called avicodec(type it in google, its a free download).Run your avi file through it then re post the results here for us to have a look at.

    go to the link above ,download the file and run your avi through it ,then repost the stats of the avi file for me to view.



    you probably have a codec issue.AVIcodec is a nice little tool for identifying what codecs you need in order to
    play your multimedia files

    dont worry about the audio files.Once the project is converted play it and see if you have sound.
