    well, i have a folder stuffed full of one click programs and i have tried a number of them to convert xvid to dvd, what i keep running into is once i start the process, my computer will just over load and reboot itself, don't know what i am doing wrong, but i know in the past i have not had this problem. followed a number guides to the tee and so far as i know, i shouldn't have this problem, don't have anything major running when i do the convertions......confused?

    i have a athlon 3200, with a gb of ram, windows xp, ati 9000 pro video card

    I'v never run into a single problem like that and mines only got a lowly 512MB of ram and a hardrive capacity of 40gb. :(

    Have you tried using VSO copytoDVD and DivxtoDVD these sort of work as a team and the vso divxtodvd has a VERY large capacity for different movie files. Works like a charm for me.

    Newayz hope this helps :)

    i think that i have tried vso divx to dvd and it just froze up, but i'm don't know what i am doing wrong or what could be the problem, i guess i'm worried since i don't see anyone else having this problem. all of my files are fresh since i have recently reformatted my harddrive, so i don't think its a software issue, maybe i have more running than i realize.......thanks for the reply, sometimes i get frustrated cause i do see ppl saying that they use vso or winavi and have no problems and i do use the guides and i am wondering what the hell am i doing so wrong that i'm not having success? i'm pretty anal about doing things by the directions......????

    i defrag on a regular basis, and check for spyware and viruses continually.......sygate, speedit up extreme, cfos speed optimizer for cable, and any programs running in the background for xp....and i wish i had gotten to a point where i could have burnt a disk but i haven't even gotten to that point yet......so no log.

    Not sure wether this would make it crash but are your harddrives partitioned because mine was partitioned as FAT32 up until I realised you can't store things over 2GB so had to partition it to NTFS just so I could go about doing my daily activities. :)

    But if you don't know if your drive is partitioned, then most likely you haven't partitioned it. However, if you purchased the pc in a store completed, then there is a good chance the manufacturer partitioned for your restore location. Don't touch it if that is the case. This is where XP saves a live copy of your system settings in case you've got to restore the machine due to some kind of failure or catastrophic incedent

    when i reformatted, it was back to oem specs, so i assume, it being xp and all that it was ntfs.......system restore didn't do the trick.

    XP can only be formatted in NTFS. FAT isn't an option. Had you had a secondary drive installed, you can format as anything.

    Mines a window xp special edition 2 and came with the hardrives partitioned both in Fat32, you can check by going to contol panel, performace and maintenence and then rearrange programs to make run faster (dfragment) I was lucky cos I had my main one (C) at 30gb Fat32 and my (D) at 7gb Fat32 so I just re-partitioned the D drive and now use that as a temp drive for all thing nice and sweet. :)
