    Dr divx is not a freeware, Go for VirtualDub but it gives lots of errors...try vidomi or nandub.

    before converting using virtual dub u need to convert the *dat file to *.mpg
    pl note that just changing the extension to .mpg does not help
    u need vcdgear to convert dat to mpg it takes just abt 2-3 mins and yes pl tick fix mpg errors in vcd gear before u go for the conversion

    now u convert the *.mpg file using virtual dub .

    the reason for doing all this is the dat file contains major sync errors which create the errors .

    i use winavi 7 to avoid all this ....u can directly convert dat to and other format..it is pretty good and fast too.....but ofcourse quality < virtual dub

    cheers

    Use TMPEGenc to convert to mpg
    Then use VirtualDub to convert to avi

    Huh..Dr. Divx is bogus...

    VirtualDub/Flaskmpeg/Auto GordianKnot....and many more freewares..

    goto www.doom9.org for more freeware and good softies for audio video compression and encoding..

    @ vmp_vivek

    see,
    u shld make the 4.2 GB DVD to TWO 700 MB parts (Xvid)...if u make only 700MB xvid then quality degrades upto 70 to 80% i think...and on p2p networks,torrents also providing 1.36 to 1.4 GB DVD quality XVIDs..so it is better to make it in 2 parts 700MB each...and u will get grt quality...as i have may videos of DVD quality for the given size of 1.3 to 1.5 GB...

    do it in FLASKMPEG or AUTOGK or goto www.doom9.org and find any other tool by reading its review..
    one other site www.videohelp.com can help u...

    regards,
    Parth Barot.

    @parth,
    I know how to make it in 2cds for 700 mb each and thus, 1.2 gb total of two cds, but I have seen many times that they are merged into one. So can you please now suggest me how to merge them ? Thanks. :)
