    Hi,
    I downloaded some videofiles from the Net (Morpheus) which are now located in my shared file.
    I am trying to burn cd's from these videos but my burner keeps on rejecting them. (The following message shows up after I press the record "button" on my TDK software" wheel": "Bad scan of MP3 file. The file is probably corrupted,recording impossible")
    The video file description is Codec: div3, div4
    and the file suffix is .avi
    In my playlist all the video files have the suffix .avi
    My TDK burner works great on any audio Mp3 files.
    In Tools under preferences file types I selected "all" ,I still get the same message. There are other selections under "tools" I did not change.
    What do I need to do to burn those video files?

    It sounds as though you are trying to burn them as audio and the software is trying to convert them to audio CD (CDA) format. You can’t burn them as video either unless you convert them to MPEG- standard. You can record them so they can be played on your computer by recording them as data.

    What burner and software? Perhaps someone who uses the software can tell you specifically how to set up the record for data.

    With Nero just select “Data CD” in the opening wizard and drag the files into the record window.

    You can only play the .avi files on your computer. If you want to play them in an entertainment DVD player they have to be converted to MPEG-1 with specific attributes. From Sony:

    “MPEG-1 files to go on a Video CD need to be “formatted for Video CD
    according to the following standards:
    NTSC 352 x 240 @30Hz (for United States)
    PAL 352 x 288 @25Hz (for most of Europe)
    Film 352 x 240 @30Hz
    Audio inside the MPEG-1 file should be 44KHz.

    Several manufacturers offer formatting tools and capture boards that will save captured
    video to MPEG-1 specifically for Video CD creation. For capture boards and software,
    Sony recommends Dazzle Multimedia (www.dazzle.com). To convert MPEG-1 files that
    you currently have to Video CD form, try out XingMPEG (www.xingtech.com).”

    I’ve never worked with video, but it looks as though it is going to be complicated to convert avi files to VCD. I doubt the quality would be that great anyway.
