Hi there. HELP! Please... I've only ever transferred home video from a miniDV camcorder to DVD before (no problems) using pinnacle instant CD/DVD. However, I'm now trying to convert an avi file into a DVD, and it's a NIGHTMARE. Got the file from japan (NTSC), initially no video until I got the correct codec (realplayer found it, windows media useless), so now it plays fine on PC. However I converted it to DVD and burnt it - and no sound at all. Picture's fine. Original file still plays fine. I tried editing it using win film maker, no problems, but the pinnacle software won't accept the new edited file. And interestingly, in the past I've had no sound from the pinnacle software whilst editing home video, but it's there on the final DVD, which is why I didn't realise there was a problem until I tried to play the disc - is that usual? All I've done differently is put one of the mpeg sounds that are part of instantcd/dvd on the menu of the DVD - and that works OK. Any ideas? I've got a 3.3gb processor, winXP and a toshiba DVD burner. I think it's pinnacle 8.
