How would I do this?

I downloaded a large 900MB torrent and I want to put it on DVD and the torrent is an .avi file.

I use Handbrake but it doesn't take an AVI and turn it into an .ISO or a Video TS folder.

I feel like I'm missing something really obvious here.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Can you convert the avi to something handbrake can convert to an iso, like an mp4?

Well, I guess I can take the .avi and use handbreak to make it an MP4 and then use handbreak AGAIN to make it a DVD.

I will try this.

I found a program online, avitodvd but I'll be honest with you, I just cleaned up my harddrive and I've loaded about 5 new programs all to convert video and load files on my new PMP and I just don't want to use another one.

I'll report back on the handbreaking.

Maybe you're missing a codec. Can you play the AVI file from Nero? Do you know what codec it uses? If not, ffdshow will tell you.

I must be missing that codec. I will do a search for it.

Thanks for the help---what a pain in the a$$ all to burn a stupid dvd for my 6 year old.

Not sure if you have Windows Vista or not, but I just burned a couple of avi files to a dvd using Windows DVD Maker. It took a while for the computer to convert the file but it worked better than I expected it too.

I do not have Vista. I am using XP sp3.

But thank you.
