Have you tried Windows DVD Maker that should recognise AVI's, if not download a free video converter program and change the format.

Have tried loading .AVIs (Many of them in the last two days) into Ashampoo BS9 & BS10 and all were recognised.

Either they are corrupt somehow or a non-standard format.

Just remember that the free versions of Ashampoo burning studios will not convert all files to DVD. FLV is supported in the bought product if I remember rightly..

Disclaimer: I'm absolutely useless on anything to do with DVDs so don't take anything I write as gospel, but...

A recent issue of Micromart had a walkthrough on DVD burning and the software they used and recommended was Handbrake at click here

I haven't tried it yet but it seemed pretty comprehensive.

PS: I also use Vista Home Premium SP2 here
