Im trying to remove stuff that I dont know so may have removed something that was placed by a proffesional tech. I am disabled so can not get paid support like before since all my fund go to house. Im really thankful I have a roof over my head and Im glad I didnt die back in 05'. Still tryin but docs say looks like full recovery but may be rest of life. Not employable but enuff bout me. I use to use nero express to make a data dvd with avi files. It worked before and I was able to put a whole lot more on a dvd using express. Well now it just shows the File Type: file on dvd. It does not show on my divx compatible dvd player anymore and I can not be wasting all these dvds. My wife gettin mad so please help. Thank you

my divx compatible dvd player
Do you mean the DVD player connected to your TV.
What make and model?

After burning, browse the disk in 'My Computer', 'Windows Explorer'.
Do you see the AVI files, same size as the originals?
Double click an AVI file.
Does it play on your computer?

Many new DVD players will play DivX encoded AVI files. But AVI files can use many different codes.
Are you sure this one is Divx?
Where did the AVI files come from?

Was busy with holidays but I have used DvDFab to convert NTSC to Avi. I use to use Nero Express and burning Rom to put on a dvd disc. Size of file remained the same which was created with DvDFab. It used to be played on my divx compatible dvd player on my tv. Now it burns but file properties of files on dvd just show as, File type: file instead of File type: Avi. Are changes to DvDFab or another burning codec needed ?

First, let me ask, what are the source of these NTSC disks(files)?

DVDFab, a product of China, is known for removing Copy protection, and probably illegal in the US.

The file extension is missing. One of two things has happened: either the avi was created without one or its getting removed in Nero.

Go to 'My Computer', find the AVIs and make sure they aren't listed as 'file type-file' there too. If they are, right click on each one > rename and add '.avi' without the quotes to the end of each movie.

If they're fine in 'my computer', then make sure the file extension is still there before you burn the dvd.
