Ok so this is officially the most frustrating problem I have ever experienced and is getting me really stressed out. any help would be very very much appreciated.

I have a few home videos on my computer that are in Avi format, some of them my friend sent to me so I don't know where they came from or anything (not sure if that matters) but I am trying to burn them to a DVD using Toast 8 Titanium. The DVD I am trying currently has 2 AVI files and it convert and burns just fine. I can play it on my computer just fine, but when I go to watch it in my DVD player the sound is way off from the video like 2 or 3 seconds off to the point where it is unwatchable. Also when I try to play the disc in my PS2 it will not even read it.

I have tried burning it, and re-burning it but I get the same problem every time I have wasted so many DVDs and so much time on this any help would be very greatly appreciated.

He said he's using Toast 8 Titanium.

I'd say try using iSquint to convert them to MP4/iPod format and se how they do. If they look/sound good you can try burning those or you can buy Visual Hub and let it convert them to DVD format (from the AVI format) and then burn them.

Try Burn for OS X, it's free, and it will convert them to a DVD friendly format. Then you can burn them to the DVD.

thanks for the replies guys... I found out that it is just certain DVD players they won't work on and I guess mine is one of them its really odd. But I guess I just have to live with it. thanks though
