The sharpening might not be a good idea afterall, as I suspected. I'll look into it.

This might be a very dumb question but i have downloaded a movie which is in avi. format and none of the programs on my computer will except this format. i have a dvd burner built into my pc and the computer is brand new is there a way i can burn it on to a dvd-r or cd-r? Is there a program i need? help!

I think you should think more about getting your movie to work than burning it to a disk at this point First of all if you downloaded it from a p2p filesharing utility, 2 things could have happened 1. You downloaded a dud or 2. The file has been shared so much that it got damaged a small bit everytime it was downloaded and now that you got it, it might be damaged badly. There is no solution for 1 but their is for 2. If you dont have virtual dub get it from... Try opening your file in virtual dub (if it doesn't open its propably a dud but it may still be damaged. Try to repair the divx here... after you've repaired it, convert it with tmpgenc. Get it from I would recomend that you convert it to svcd and burn it. I dont have a dvd burner yet so I don't know any good software you can use to burn to it. Check Afterdawns software section.

MattLee... Perhaps you are unable to view your avi file because it uses DivX compression.. you can download the DivX Codec (Coder/Decoder) from this site and then try viewing it in Windoze media player or another media player of your choice. I hope this was helpful. e

Actually you're also posting comments to the news item: Nothing wrong with replying. The question itself was in the wrong place to start with.

Okay this is going to be a dumb question too all of you that have already figured it out, But here it is. I have downloaded quite a few movie that are great quality "sound's good looks good" everything. Now my problem is I have been using Nero with the SVCD plug in's. My computer is a very slow computer. A duran Pen II with almost a Gig of ram. I'm not sure if this is the reason for my problem, but when ever I encode and burn with Nero, the sound of the movie lags. My picture and my sound rarely ever is in sync. I have downloaded TMPgenc... And it is like French to me. I have no been able to figure out how to use it. All I can do is encode file to mpeg. I was told it can encode Avi files to Svcd and burn it all in one. Have I been misinformed..... Please someone that knows what they are talking about reply.... Thanx jayblunt
