.avi files on a DVD player.

Specs: Windows XP
I have a Cyrus Discmaster 8.0 which plays a range of av file formats. But it behaves erratically. I have just burned 2 movies as .avi to DVD, my player recognises the first and plays it but the second doesn't even show up on the menu. But my PC "sees" and plays both..

Just curious, are you finalizing the disc after recording?

I didn't finalise after burning Movie1 because I wouldn't have been able to burn Movie2 later. Movie1 was OK and it was only after I had added Movie2, which I didn't finalise either, that I found the problem.
Perhaps finalising now might be the answer except I don't know how to...and I don't know why that would make any difference anyway.

You finalize a disc after recording (in Nero 6 it's un-checking the "Allow files to be added later/multi-session disc" box---your software may be different) to close-out recording on the disc and prepare it to be read in other players. Otherwise, you'd be able only to read it in just the one you burned the disc on. Not sure why you were able to see the first movie in your previous efforts...

Check with gspot that the 2 avi files have the same codecs.

It could be the player doesn't support one of them.
