    I just burned an avi file with Nero and it got a bit mixed up it shows upside down and in mirror image, however when I view the file on the PC it is perfect.
    what is going on here? doesnt nero recognise the codec(s) that are used for the mediaplayer?

    please advise

    cheers

    MM,

    Have seen this problem before being rectified by adjusting Hardware Acceleration either up / down.

    Start > Run type DXDIAG.

    Other than the above the only suggestions I got from Google were related to try different codecs.

    If you try Google - take care if you click any links from the site CDFreaks as you get something like 5 popups when the site opens - and 5 more when you close.

    Sorry cannot make any definitive suggestions, but hope you get it sorted.

    This can also be caused by a dodgy codec file, usually because whoever created the file originally used the wrong format (see M$KB 269967) or because you are using the infamous Nemo codec

    Try downloading the DivX codecs, http://www.divx.com/divx/ and download the Download DivX Standard (FREE) version

    I ran the DXDIAG like recommended, i have no clue which settings to change.
    besides that i downloaded the codec pack as recommended by PS.
    i will try to burn the avi file again.

    dunno if this part is important, but.. it only seems to happen with large files burned onto a 99 mins disk, on a 'normal' disk it's all fine.

    cheers for the quick replies sofar :):)

    yeah i did, i just wondered how come it only does it on the 99 mins disks. to be fair i have to say i didnt try to split the file in two and burn it on two regular disks..

    another q though, where do you change these settings?

    cheers

    Which media player are you using?

    The reason I asked about graphics card is that some cards have a correction utility that you use on a particular file
