What? Why would you want to transcode a divx to play it on a divx player:? :thinking:

Just copy as you would any normal file onto a CD then chuck it in the player.

Thanks for replies. Am I correct that you wont need a DVD disk to play .avi films on a stand alone dvd/divx player?

So would I just the .avi and use nero as a data disk? VCD? or SVCD? And would the quality be the same as what its like on the .avi file?

Cheers

As long as the avi fits on the disk you can use CD. If its spread over 2 disks it's better to use a DVD obviously so you don't have to keep changing disks.

If you copy it as data it will be the same as on the computer (barring possibly the lower res of your TV screen), if you transcode to (S)VCD it WILL lose some quality.

I would like to point out in a very unhelpful way that I tried burning AVI to DVD and VCD a few times with Nero and got terrible results. Something always went wrong with the sync and I gave up doing it.

If you have a divx player just dump the file to a CD using windows and play it. (Or if it's too big for a CD dump it onto a data DVD.) Don't involve Nero at all.

For a divx player use Nero Express and a blank dvd/cd and choose data disc . Make sure you burn it at a slow speed to lessen the chance of errors.

If you think your going to be using a lot of avi files i'd recommend trying to find/make a modded xbox with XBMC. The most recent build of XBMC supports usb sticks up to 4gb with an adaptor, much easier than using discs.

I'd recommend the 'ConvertX to DVD' software. Really simple to use, and great quality. Nero sucks.

Or just wire the Xbox to your PC via the network socket. Barring the fan noise it's the best solution.

Yes you can copy the file to cd or dvd as long as it will fit. Just use any burning software and copy to disc as data.:)

personaly i wouldnt touch nero either, so many other programes to use and i think somewhere on the forum there is a good thread saying what programes people use.

so have a look back, might help you. :)

I don't bother with burning discs anymore, I just copy them to a usb stick and plug that straight into the dvd player that I have.
