    if you are in the states then the avi probably need to be ntsc while being encoded to dvd spec mpeg-2. avi's are usually 25fps (pal) and u.s. sony's are known for not playing pal.

    What program did you use to convert the AVI to a DVD format? And I would recommend ImgBurn instead of Nero most times for burning. Also, what brand of DVD media are you using?

    A prohibition error most times is from something done during the conversion process, such as a improper video/audio format or something out of specification with the DVD format. Do you have the exact wording of that error?

    EDIT: aedipuss has a good point about PAL video. You can drop one of the VOBs from the DVD into Gspot and see if it shows up as 25fps video. Then that could be your problem. A converter program like ConvertXToDVD or FAVC should be able to convert the original file to NTSC, which is the format used in the US.
