    Hi, been trying to follow this guide, but when it comes to opening the .avi in TMPGEnc it says that the file can not open or unsupported.
    It said supported in AVIcodec though.
    Am, I doing someething wrong? I followed the instructions exactly

    I dont mind downloading it if you give me a link,or if it's not available I can pm you my email addy, would be very much appreciated!

    Have been trawling through so many threads on this subject with loads of software mentioned, I have downloaded about 6 different things now and keep being told I need something else to do this or that

    Also this darn wireless keyboard is playing up and keeps missing out letters ... but that is another topic altogether

    http://www.avi-vcd.com/ thats the link to cucosoft. You will need to purchase basic version but i have been using it for ages and has never failed me.

    Does this software give good audio sync to the video? I used DVDSanta and ended up with audio a good 5 seconds off the video!!! Amusing but annoying

    I used the AVI-DVD thingy and have ended up with 2 mpeg files and an audio file, not sure what to do with all that.

    Will try that link for TPMGEnc, thanx

    If the "thingy" you are referring to is the Cucusoft program you need to do the following:

    1) Download a program called IFOEDIT (1MB in size)

    2) Open IFOEDIT and click on "DVD Author" then on "Author New DVD"

    3) Click on video tab and go to folder you placed Cucusoft files in to. You will only see one file showing, select it

    4) Do same as above on the audio tab

    5) Enter a destination folder (use an empty folder)

    6) Click ok and within about 10 min you will have all your DVD VOB files created

    7) Then use Nero, DVD create and place the files that IFOEDIT created in to the VIDEO_TS folder and burn the complilation.

    Easy as that. I have had a 100% success rate with Cucusoft. As for TPMGEnc I can never get it to work properly hence why I'm here trying to solve my issues. :)

    Hope the above helps you

    If you follow fubba's guide above you should have no problems. Just concentrate on his Guide any questions?

    Also if you use Cucusoft program you can click on the Help tab and you will get a guide with screenshots to step you through the entire process including the use of IFOEDIT etc.

    Meowmie.............is the audio fine as an AVI, is it in sync?

    Never had that problem before, go to the Cucusoft home page and look throught the FAQ's. When I've had probs in the past I go there and usually find a fix.

    You can get various codecs and bits to download that Cucusoft may require if experiencing problems.
