    >an error message appears on screen

    What this msg says? Open this avi in VirtualDubMod and save it to different file name both video and audio as 'direct stream copy'. Still same error msgs?

    ok, tried that one...got some sort of result, it only encoded 19mins worth of the AVI file,when i loaded it into DVD-lab(pro) the file froze at exactly 19mins...any other suggestions please?
    The orriginal messages that appeared were that this program has encountered an error and windows needs to shut down!(this happens on whatever encoder i have tried to comvert this file with)
    by the way the Avi file will play fine with either the Divx player or windows media player without any hitches.

    run your file through AVICODEC then post the results.(This program is a free download from the net)

    It could be 'not a codec problem'. Can you see the beginning of the movie? There might also be a corruption point around at 19 sec. Try saving a piece of movie (movie.part2) with range = 60000 ms --> end with VirtualDub (Video__Direct stream Copy). Then, if this works, you can try to reduce 60000 ms towards 19000 ms (the point where the movie is corrupt, and where this trick will stop working. Vituladub will signal an error.). Post again here your results.
    Of course, the 'movie.part1' (0--> 18000 ms) will work and you could try to add it to 'movie.part2' movie. But, there's no way to recover the missing samples (but you'll miss only a few seconds, I hope)
