I transferred some home videos recorded from my DV cam to my hard drive using the Windows movie maker. Upon completion the .avi file weighed at a hefty 13 GB. I shrank it down to approx. 1.5 GB using a program called Ashampoo. Now whenever I try to convert the .avi to dvd/vcd/svcd using Nero Express 5, I am unable to hear any sound. The video quality is excellent but there is no audio. Is it because the file has been shrunk, or am I doing something wrong? What are my options? Thanks for your time and I appreciate any help.
