    "I tried but I can't" doesn't give us much to go on :)

    What part of Nero were you using? Burning ROM or Nero Vision?

    Why exactly was it not working?

    Any specific errors?

    Some considrations:

    (1) there is already an Afterdawn's [bold](S)VCD Forum [/bold] for this. This is a [bold]CD-R Forum[/bold] and your questions + our answers couldn't be seen by other people having similar problems
    (2) an .AVI needs you have a proper Codec to [bold]DEC[/bold]ode it (that is, to see it, but if you see it on your PC, e.g. on WMP, ll should work fine...)
    (3) I find Nero a lame VCD application - VCDEasy and VCDGear are much better
    (4) often you need to encode a video first, using TMPGenc [e.g. if the movie is PAL and you have a NTSC movie or if the resolution is 640x420 and a VCD is 358x240 (352x288 if PAL)]. It's much better than
    (A) encode a proper .MPG first, after decoding the .AVI (with TMPGenc and the codecs you've installed on your PC), then
    (B) create a VCD image (with VCDEasy, VCDGear)then
    (C) burn it, than doing this process:
    (lame.a) decode a movie from the .AVI format +
    (lame.b) encode a movie to a VCD's NTSC/PAL .MPG +
    (lame.c) burn the .MPG to a CD to create a VCD
    simultaneously.
