I am still new to most of this reformatting but I have been downloading movies for awhile. I have lots of avi files that I want to change to MPEG-1 files, I think, so that they can be played on CD-R/CD-RW compatiable DVD players. I have read of few of these message boards and found out that I needed to download TMPGEnc. I have downloaded that program but when I try to use it to make a VCD the DVD player says that it does not recognize that type of CD and to please insert another CD. What am I doing wrong? Are there any default or standard setting for me to put into the TMPgenc program to make sure that my avi files are encoded properly to play in the DVD player?
