thanks Lazarus The 2nd , the file is shown as:
VLC media file (.avi) (.avi) with an orange and white traffic cone as the icon
I have Ashampoo's burning studio 10 which wont recognize the file

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