    I have movies as avi files and wish to burn them using Nero 6 to cd's to watch as VCD format.

    I know Nero suppose to covert and burn by itself, but so far I have wasted a ton of disks that seem to burn ok but never play on the dvd player ( panasonic 18 mths old).

    Any help towards this would be much appreciated.

    Are you sure your DVD player can play them.The first DVD player I had would play DVDS and that was all,no mp3s no nothing just DVDS.

    thanks for the help, will give it a shot...

    yes my dvd player plays vcds usually, and mp3 are ok when I burnt them and played them. just the avi files from the net that seem to not work.

    its me again, and I am going crazy... after following the instructions to the T, I managed to covert the AVI file to mpg using TMPGEnc.

    next step is to burn it on cd. Nero gave me a warning message just like the one I got when I was trying to burn avi file initially. the error says the file is not a recognisable video format, and nero will encode it before burning.

    the resulting cd will not play on pc or dvd.

    is it a Nero problem, or did I do something wrong?

    It must be Nero, try downloading another burning software and then you'll know.

    I've heard Alcohol 120% is a good tool, I haven't tried it myself yet, you can get it from the software section and try it.

    Hope you get a result!
    Cheers

    How about burning a VCD from an AVI file using a Mac. Is it possible?
