    Hi,

    I am unable to convert a few avi files into one 4.4gb DVD using ConvertxtoDVD. I tried putting in 3-4 low resolution avi files, total of about 2.4gb(for avi) and with a duration of 5 hrs into it but the conversion failed halfway. I tried a few times but it does not work. Anyone know what went wrong?

    For one avi into one 4.4gb dvd everything is fine.

    Thanks.

    I suspect one of those files is corrupted or has a format, audio or video, that ConvertX doesn't understand. You would also have to select 1/2D1 for that much video on a disc or it would likely look a lot worse than the AVI videos you are inputing. Full DI DVD resolution at 1800kbps is too low. (That's calculated from your 5 hours of video) 1/2D1 is a much better choice for long video.

    If you look in the log file under the help menu, it may tell you the error that caused the problem.

    If nothing obvious there, drop each one in MediaInfo or Gspot. Look for framerate differences, 25fps and 29.97fps mixed, or something in the audio. You may have to re-encode one of them or repair it before it would work. ConvertX is fairly robust, so it usually takes a major error for it to fail.

    Which version of VSO ConvertXtoDVD are you using? - The processing time seems way too long and as mentioned you may have a corrupt file. MediaInfo can give you some information on the avi's. Post the log file from VSO that may help. I'm running the latest version and the time taken ranges from 17 minutes for a 1 hour mpeg file to about 1h 10m for several avi's. I would update if you are running an early version and especially the buggy free version.
