Converting will run your CPU at nearly 100%, sometimes for hours at a time, so it's important that it be free of dust and well ventilated for cooling. Also when converting you can generate very large files as an intermediate step, it works best when the new file is loaded to another hard drive, reading from one drive and writing to another is faster.

You can use yasa wmv vdieo converter to convert mpeg and dvdr-ms to wmv video. It does a good job.

It's possible. I use VidLogo for it. I can convert mpg to avi or mov very simple and quickly and I haven't any problem with it. You can try it too.

Good luck!!!
