I use CloneDVD Mobile, and this works fine with Vista to create the AVI files i play on my Vivitar DMD-P20

DivX is not currently compatible with Vista, but they're working on it.

I have gotten pocket divx to work by running it as an Administrator.
Here's what you have to do.
Right click the PocketDivX and select run as administrator.

If you don't want to have to do that every time, then you can right click PocketDivx and select Properties. Click on compatibility and then click the check box for "Run this program as an administrator" then click OK and you're all set.

Oh, yeah. Make sure you are using the testing version (.96) from here click here
When you open it as an Administrator, you will see four windows in your status bar. It's OK, don't close any of them, or it won't work for you.

Hope this helps you.
