    Hi there, I hope someone can help.

    I have been using Nero Suite 6 and have been burning DVD's for some time now very successfully.
    I recently purchased a new DVD player which plays DivX, Xvid and MPEG-4 (AVI) aswell as normal DVD, VCD and SVCD. It reads all formats of media aswell DVD+/-R and RW's. Same for CD's.
    MY PROBLEM:-

    I have numerous files in AVI format. I want to burn them to CD or DVD as they are without having to recode them to DVD format first. I use Nero Burning Rom 6.6.1.4 to burn the AVI to disc. The disc/file plays fine on my pc, but will not play through my new AVI ready DVD player. At first I though it was a problem with the codecs on the new player, but it does support the codecs the AVI files are made with. Now this is the odd bit - I borrowed some AVI format files on DVD from friends and they play fine on my new DVD player. I copied the files that work onto my hard drive, then burned them using Nero onto DVD discs (as always at half max speed). They play back fine on my pc again but again, my new DVD player does not even see there is a file to load on the disc. I cannot understand how the same files will play straight from my friends discs, but when I burn the same file they will not play. There must be something happening to the files when i burn them through Nero 6?
    Any advice or similar experiences / cures would be most gratefull

    This is the detail of one of the files i am trying to burn :-

    File Size : 346 Mb.

    [Movie]
    Valid : Yes [AVI]
    Duration : 00:41:48
    Movie complete : Yes

    [Video]
    Resolution : 624x352
    Codec : XviD MPEG-4 codec
    FPS : 23.98
    BitRate : 1030 Kbps
    Quality Factor : 0.20 b/px

    [Audio]
    Codec : MPEG 1 or 2 Audio Layer 3 (MP3)
    Number of channels : 2
    Sample Rate : 48000 Hz
    BitRate : 128 Kbps

    This is the latest burn log from this file. I have tried it on DVD+R and RW, both of which my new DVD player supports. Is there anything showing up in here? :-

    Nero 6.6.1.4

    This version of Nero contains some bugs, uninstall, run this clean tool http://ww2.nero.com/nero6/en/Clean_Tools.html and then install this more stable version, BOTH packages

    Package 1:
    http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/Nero-6.6.0.18_no_yt.exe
    Package 2:
    http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/NVE-3.1.0.21_no_yt.exe

    You have Roxio installed, it clashes with Nero, to remove, run this zapper http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Roxio-Zap.shtml

    Hi there.
    gwendoline, I did everything you suggested without a problem, but after burning AVI's and trying them in the DVD player they still do not get recognised as being on the disc even though my pc plays them fine. Any more ideas?

    This is the log file from the last burn i tried :-

    This could be a compabability problem...some players will accept the +R format, some the -R format and some will accept both also some players are "picky" as to the brand of disc they will play...as your's accepts BOTH formats all I can suggest is to try a different brand of disc.
