    I have some video files, that I have accumulated over the years, that I really would like to try and burn to DVD. I have Nero Essentials 3.0 (?) that came with my burner. I burn the files to DVD in a format that should be readable by a stand alone player, but here is what is happening. The video comes through fine, but the audio sounds like the Chipmunks on helium. But this doesn't happen with all of them, only some. Some of the video's that I would think are protected, burn fine, but then the ones that I pulled off of my own video camera, come out sounding like the Chipmunks.

    I was referred to try AnyDVD to see if it would strip off anything that is causing this to happen, which I have the trial version. It doesn't seem to work on these types of files unless I am using it wrong. FIle formats are .mpg, .wmv and .avi. These are what I have been trying to burn. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks,

    What software are you using to convert to DVD?

    Anydvd doesn't do anything with .avi and .wmv files. Anydvd is intended for use with original commercial dvd movies. If you want to learn how to use Anydvd with original commercial dvd movies, read below:

    1. Use Anydvd click

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".

    3. If you use DVDShrink, Nero Recode, or programs that generally can't handle structural protections, right-click on the fox icon on your toolbar and select "Rip video-dvd to Hard Disk". Choose your source and destination paths. Click "Copy", and wait for Anydvd ripper to finish. You can then import that rip into whatever program you want. This is an important step if the original disc contains structural protection.

    You don't need to do this if you own Clonedvd or are planning to make a backup with Clonecd.

    4. Use the latest Clonedvd: click

    5. Follow the steps from this link in order: click (follow them step by step)

    If you're using +R DL blank discs, I recommend using Clonecd: click

    6. If you still have problems, then . . .

    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG] (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"
    n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at

    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?

    C) Click to see if your question has already been answered
