Hi. I have avi files that i want to convert and burn to play on stand alone dvd players in mpeg2 form. I'm using NeroVision Express to convert the avi files but after sometimes HOURS and HOURs of waiting I get a message like 'unable to prepare data for recording. the file may be corrupt' or 'internal error 255' which is HIGHLY frustrating. How can I fix this problem or repair the avi file? Plus is there a better program than Nerovsion Express for doing what I have described? Thanks. Greg EDIT: sorry- i meant to post this in the newbie forum!
