3 gig 2 avi?
well there is two
Easy divx will take a dvd or vobs off the hdd you'll need the length in minutes, you'll need divx codecs then it converts it to avi.
You can choose the size, you must create a folder in root drive C:\ drive only as no other position will do, then create a new folder with one single name I use >  Temp.
Then in step 5 choose this folder.
It takes about 3 hours.
EasyDivX Standard v0.8.2.0

Merete,

think you misread the question....

The question is asking for an application to convert .3g2 files to .avi files
not a program to convert 3 GB of ripped DVD data to avi.

shuboarderCommented:
yes, but it's not relevant seeing as we're not talking 3gig of anything to avi
we're talking about the file extension .3g2

Anyway, I'm not having a dig at you, because I think you're great!

Take care ;)

Sorry about the looong delay.

Tried Xilosoft to convert my 3g2 to AVI.  Resulting AVI file was not viewable by either Media Player or Quicktime

Tried zwei-stein thugs at bay but couldn't get it to do anything.

Anyone use either one or something else and got it to work?

Schmir1 - No I've not used Xilosoft for that particular conversion before,
but did you not try the software in my very first post?

You may have overlooked this with all the discussion between myself and Merete afterwards.

I tried BoilSoft Mov.  Did convert and play but picture was purple.  That one is the closest to working.

I think I'll wait for a while to convert until good tools are in place.

Thanks everyone for your help.
