Windows 7: Need help

Need help

Hello everyone, I am wondering if there is any way I can use all of my computer's cores to as I convert an AVI to ISO. I've tried and it has worked a few times with smaller ISO files, but when I get to the bigger one the audio is off just a few milliseconds.
Thanks, Jesse

What tools have you tried? Any Video Converter has always worked well but I don't know if they will convert to iso format.

By the way, why would you convert from avi to iso?

I am making a avi to iso so I burn it to a DVD to play on my TV.

I am using DVD Flick and IMG Burn

Ah, I see. You're not really converting AVI to IFO, you're converting AVI to VOB and then putting it in an ISO. It makes sense.

I'm guessing DVD Flick will import AVI's so I guess the problem is you want that software to take advantage of your multi-core processor. Only DVD Flick can make that happen - it's a programming issue.

It really depends on the program itself as how many cores it can utilize. For eg., if you try to run any older game, written for single core cpu, it won't run correctly unless you set its affinity to 1 core.
I'm not sure about this but you can try setting the affinity of your converter app's process to all the cores via task manager and see if it does any good.
Alternatively, you can try setting its priority to above normal or high (don't set realtime) to let your cpu work more on it.

I realize that it's completely besides the point of what you're trying to do, but would it not be easier to just purchase a hard-disk based media player that you can connect to your TV instead? That way, you can save yourself the trouble of converting from AVI to ISO, which does not always appear to work properly.

I currently use the Mede8er, which can be used either with or without a hard disk. Mine is running without a hard disk, and I stream all my videos and music over the network. (I convert all my DVDs and BLU-RAYs to AVI so that the discs can be preserved for posterity)

It costs 149 Euros (without a hard disk), but is well worth the cost because of effort saved. You may want to investigate others that cost a bit less, but my experience indicates that the Mede8er cannot be beaten for performance and compatibility.

If you aren't happy with the number of cores your app uses, the only solution is to not be tied to that app, and find a better alternative. I use Handbrake for all of my encoding because it will use all the cores you can throw at it.
