    Is a 2.48 GB avi file too big to convert to DVD format using ConvertXtoDVD 4. The reason i'm asking is i tried and after burning the result to a blank DVD, found the product to be choppy all the way through while the avi file was smooth on the computer's monitor. thanks,,,,forgot to mention that my blanks have a cpacity of 4.7 GB..thx

    According to VSO:

    Why is my burned disc jumpy, blocky, skips etc when played?
    There are many reasons why the playability of a disc may not be smooth. The disc could be simply dirty, scratched, etc. It is possible that the type of disc you burned is not a format that is accepted by your player (for example not all DVD players read +R or RW media). There is a lot of poor and good quality media on the market and not every player will read any media. For the last two cases above a computer should be able to play these discs without any playback problems and it is possible on a different player the disc would read back fine, it is just a matter of player/disc compatibility. Some brands we recommend are Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden.
    Another reason why a disc is jumpy, skips, etc. can be low burn quality. Burning at reduced speeds can increase the quality of your disc and make it more readable.
    If your disk contains video and the playback is not smooth or in black and white, check to see that you have the correct region set for your DVD player (PAL, NTSC or Automatic) and then check to see what format you burned your video. The format of your video needs to be the same as what your DVD player is capable of reading.

    Thank you C141. I've been using the same DVDs for a couple of years now and 99 % of them work on my cheap little DVD player. I'm going to take your suggestion and try and play the DVD on my computer but I've noticed that when i attempted to play the DVD video formatted file on my computer after converting it from my avi. file, it was choppy too. Hopefully you will respond again.

    thx in advance

    There's a chance someone else here may offer some suggestions or possible solution. Until or in the interim you might also post your question on the VSO Forum. You'll have the benefit of others that use the software & may have had same or very similar problems.

    And the above post was blatantly copied from their support page. Hence the "According To VSO" at top of the post.
