    I'm looking to take a split up set of avi movie backup files and combine them again to fit onto one DVD-r. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful in trying to do so. I've messed around with a little things such as winAVI and turned them into VOB's and had Nero try to sort it all out, and I think it would work, but Nero comes up with a compiling volume error each time I try. Are my nero settings wrong? Has anyone else ever gotten problems like this? The encoded VOB's are the size I need for my DVD-r, so all I need to be able to do is burn them...but Nero wants to act up.

    Hope someone can help... thanks.

    Try DVD Lab (30day trial download). It can take VOB files as inputs and create a DVD. Note it doesn't write DVDs... but it can join the VOBs. Then you can use Nero to write.

    It can also create a menu for you if you want to.

    Adder.

    Hi there,

    VirtualDUB v1.5.10 is very quick to join 2 or more .AVI files together.

    Then convert your final .AVI to DVD using

    VSO DivXtoDVD

    and it definitely did not work... I fuddled around until it did something that I think linked the VOB's into one big one, and I transfered it over to nero and it still won't burn in Nero Recode 2...

    any other suggestions?

    thanks for the help so far by the way.

    Hi there,

    If you are answering me, I use VirtualDUB to join the .AVI files BEFORE I convert them with DivXtoDVD.

    I have no idea if you can join 2 .VBO files !!!

    Hi there,

    Here is an answer found on a CDR-ZONE forum....

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    You have to take an extra step by using virtualdub to merge the files,then you can load the merged file in DivxtoDvd...

    Fire up virtualdub,

    File-->open videofile-->select "your file.avi",then open.....

    next step :
    File-->append avi segment-->select the file,then open ......

    next step:

    File-->save as avi-->select name and destination path

    then let virtual dub do it's job and you'll get a merged avi......

    make sure the Video and Audio options are set to Direct Stream Copy or you could end up with a huge file that will take an hour to finish when it should just be a few minutes and just be the size of the two files added together.
