First off, I'm new and not sure if my problem would belong here, but since it's ragarding Nero I thought I would post it here. If it belongs else where, please move it. Okay now. I have Nero 8 and use Nero Vision 5 to make home DVDs for family and friends. Now, I just started using Nero 8 last week and it's been working great. A friend had transfered her old VHS home clips onto her PC and now wanting me to put them on DVD for her. I said sure. The files are .avi, but not sure if that's the original format or whatever. When I try loading them into Nero Vision 5 the entire program will close out, and I have to relaunch it.. and it does the same thing. Other clips work, just a select few won't load. Is there a way I can check to see why the clips won't load or somehow reencode the clips with another program? The clips will play in VLC media player, just won't load in Nero. Any help would be appreaciated.
