I have tried to convert xvid AVIs to DVD-Video with no success (after upgrading to latest version. I seem to recall performing 2-3 registry hacks to disable some unecessary features in earlier versions, but I can not find that thread. I just upgraded to latest version (tried to run cleantool, but it didn't find the ..\Ahead folder) Here is my log file below with file names redacted and S/N redacted. Any help that can be provided would be appreciated. I actually did this successfully before, and paid for Nero so I am not willing to throw away my money: I copied the whole log, I think it starts the burn for real about the 2nd time. Thanks again!!
