My card does the same. I use the following program to convert the captured AVI's to MPEG's.

It converts about 100:1  -- 300MB to 3MB.

From what I can remember it takes very little to get it working.

Any problems using it let me know..

Cheers,

T.

Also you can find other programs about but I had problems with the sound on some of them and this utility seemed to be the best..for example

this was a bit difficult to configure so I opted for the GUI versrion in my last post.

I would get a hold of TMPGEnc. It will to do the same thing as avi2mpg but is much more configurable for both the audio and the video layers. You should be able to locate a download page easily enough with a search engine. It's freeware....
