    go to "Options" to "Enviromental settings" to "vfapi Plugins" and Raise the priority of the "Direct Show Multi-Media File Reader" to "2"...This should get your AVI file loaded Properly...Cheers

    If you can"t watch the file on your PC what makes you think that tmpgenc can decode the file??? For every Movies file in AVI format there was a codec used to create the File and you MUST have that codec installed on your System before you can watch the file or decode it...If you download a Little tool called "Gspot" it should tell you what type of file it is and what codec you need to install to decode the File...If you install FFDShow Decoder it will probably decode the file because it can decode most AVI formats.....Cheers

    what made me think that i could burn it and watch it on disc when i cant watch it on pc is because I send avi's to my xbox and watch them all of time when my computer doesnt show video. I dont know much about this stuff, a little ignorant , but thanks for all of help.(hard at work)
