avi is a windows format so you'll need some additional software.


flip4mac ( Windows MediaŽ Components for QuickTime (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx) )

perian (Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTimeŽ components (http://perian.org/) ) is also a good idea

no not that sorry, i did not explain my self properly. what i meant is that it will not show on the hard drive with the mac, but it will show on my windows computer. (can see the file on windows, but on on the mac)

That's strange. My AVI files show up fine.
