Need to burn some AVI files to DVD, and do not have any software on PC

Anyone recommend something? Even a free 15 day trial?

Cheers

yes one post up from yours

Either that disc is very very badly scratched or more likely it's just using latest protection or even 1 year to 2 year protection which dvdshrink cannot handle anymore.

never worked, already had the same version mate thanks anyhoo :):thumbsup:

dvd fab will do it with main movie option. Then untick audio tracks you do not want like 5.1 directors comms or any other English tracks you do not need or any other language tracks, subtitles etc. It will show a % of how the output files are affected by your choices so it will fit on DVD-5 you are aiming for no compression with the AUDIO choices .However LOL do not remove all of them unless you like silent movies.

DVDShrink + Anydvd has yet to fail a disk for me ever.



i'll check out ANYdvd. its a brand new movie (out last week), so protection may be hard to crack

I take it ANYdvd shrinks as well?

the reason you get that error is because of the protection. if you had anydvd installed that error should go away unless your hard drive is broken.

I would not use anydvd personally or recommend it's use to anyone as It interferes with low level commands to optical drives. I am not suggesting you do not use it .. You make that choice I'm only saying I would not (cannot)recommend it in the same manner I forwarded a link etc for other software

It used to cost to buy dunno if they do free version now.

btw it's Cyclic

It does if you use Anydvd, are you actually to stupid to read.



so how do I use BOTH together :whistling: it is 12:30 in the morning you know! lol

Do I just run it through shrink and will it default to anydvd?

Edit: Ive not received any links bud!
