Thats because Divx or AVI is not a recognized format for a DVD Player. If you are burning a disc you need a software that can create a DVD Format Disc from an AVI as all DivX are AVIs. I reccomend Ulead DVD Workshop 2:

DMR-BS850EB My recorder will not play back avi, divx,discs, even though it says in spec it will play back divx. can you help


Download the latest firmware from panasonics website,that will update the internal software engine that is in the recorder and maybe that will allow it to play and record avi,divx,etc.Its like updating the bios that all computers have,everything is a factor right down to who made the disc and format of the disc to disc size,etc.To update the firmware you must first download the file via the internet from another pc or if you are connected to the internet via ethernet cable to the recorder then you will be able to do that thru the on screen menu from the recorder,if you download the file from another pc ,you will need to put the file on either a memory card or disc and then go to update firmware thru the on screen menu and then let it know where the firmware is (browse to it)double left click the file and then press update firmware.Hope this solves your issue,if not let me know,be glad to help you get it right,thanks and good luck.

I just bought and set up the vhs to dvd program but when i coppied the video onto the disc and tried to play ti in the dvd player it said disc error.i made sure i followed the hook up directions.help!


You have either used a disc that is not compatible with your dvd player, or used the wrong file system for the dvd and/or format, have not finalized the dvd recording.
If you use a dvd-r for recording, the disc has to be finalized, regions use different formats of video(UK=PAL, USA=NTSC)
The easiest way to use your disc would be to convert the video to avi format(xvid divx mp4/3) and burn to a disc as data format.
Download ANY VIDEO CONVERTER FREE,
and ASHAMPOO BURNING STUDIO6 FREE .
Use the converter to change the video to avi, use the studio to burn the video as a data disc, you can get up to 14hours per standard dvd(28 hrs on a dual layer). Put the disc in and it will play as a DivX dvd.

I have wasted 4 hours with 1 of your so called (experts) i want answers not excuses


Don't know if I can help or not, but this what I do.
I've downloaded the DIVx player and converter software (free) to my computer. I can download mpeg, avi movies, etc, and convert them to DIVx format if I need to. The DIVx player has a 'burn' feature that is fast and burns them in a DIVx format. My old DVD Recorder will not play DIVx format but my 'cheap' Phillips will. I just keep it hooked up to my old DVD recorder through the front RCA input jacks. When I want to play a DIVx movie and watch it on the TV, I use the cheap Phillips player. I have to change the input on my old DVD Recorder to 'Front Input. I usually record the movie on a DVD R in my DVD Recorder while I'm watching it if I want to keep a copy to play later on the DVD Recorder. Most of the time, I burn the movies to RW DVD and erase them later.

I don't remember the web site for the DIVx players and converters, but you should be able to find it with a search.

Hope this helps.

AVI formatted files behave as audio only

The following formats can be played on Windows media player:

avi
mov
mp4
mpg
mpeg

Normally DVD players cannot read compressed formats, if you have a regular DVD/MP3 player, that wont read any of the formats above, or with some luck will read only uncoded Avi, mov or mpeg.

The formats above are all compressed formats, and often they need additional software call codecs, they can be read on computers, but they generally are not working on dvd players.

To be sure that a DVD will read compressed computer movies, you need a special DVD player with Divx , like the one below:

Unknown Disc


There are at least two types of AVI formats that I know about: DIVX and XVID. When you encode your movie files are you encoding them always to DIVX? Some machines can play one format and not the other.

Did you make sure to handle the disc with care and not smudge it with your fingers? Dirty discs can easily be cleaned, using a super soft cloth & rubbing alcohol wiping in a swirling motion as you go around the disc. Discs with scratches need to be taken to a shop and professionally repaired.

Is the machine itself dirty? Simple fix: CD/DVD cleaner disc. Its got these little brushes on it to clean the laser eye.

Are you covering up any air holes on the outer case? Don't cover these up or the machine will get too hot, and will refuse to play anything.
