Ok never mind sorry people. manbaged to find the answer using this site lol shoulda thought of that 1st.. ahh gone on a noob spree with forums ahh its been so long..
dl ffmpegX - http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/15473
- where it says source format, drop your avi file there
- where it says target format, choose either DVD mpeg2enc, or DVD ffmpeg, mpeg2enc takes longer but quality is better(from my experience).
-under the options tab select author as DVD & encode with quicktime.
- then press encode... your result will be and .DVD folder that contains 2 folders, AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS
- in ffmpegX yu can select the options tab and select the img tab
- select browse find your .dvd folder select go
- in disk utility drag that .img file to the let side and select burn
let me know how that works

ETA: I remembered, it's called isquint. The program is used for converting to ipod recognised files, but idvd also can read them.

Try Visual Hub. I use it regularly, it even works with Windows wmv files! It costs like 20.00USD or so but it's worth every penny

Has anyone ever realised that iMovie could also be a useful tool for converting video? It's what I use.Back with the mac!

I use Divx Doctor to convert the avi to a quicktime movie and then use Quicktime to convert to whatever (usually vcd).Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
