    I had 2 avi's for a movie that has 5.1 audio and joined them together to make one avi. I used VirtualDubMod they joined fine It plays fine on my PC....and thought cool....ok...now I'll use ConvertXtoDVD to make a DVD. I've used convertxtodvd for a year or so and I've never had a problem with it before, but when I tried to convert the joined avi with convertxdvd, It burned ok....it plays on my PC but not on my DVD players? why is this?

    like I said before....I've used Xtodvd to burn avi files before with no problem....why isn't it working now? I'm thinking when I joined the avi files together it changed the codec or something. I'm not sure why??

    I need help with this.

    With VdubMod did you use 'Direct Stream Copy'? Was the resultant AVI exactly the same size as the sum of the 2 you used?

    Yes, I used Direct Stream Copy and it was the same size exactly. Do you know why it wont work? It was the joining that did something. what it did I don't know?

    Be hard to say without asking lotsa questions. I always join AVI's (I use Vdub Mp3 freeze) and convert with ConvertX to files, then do the final burn to disc with Nero Express.

    Maybe a PAL/NTSC thing? How are your settings?
