I have downloaded an original animation video (OAV) that is in avi format. I desire to have it in wmv format for view on Zune. As I try to convert it the following error message returns: ‘Cannot open the file’. Does anyone have an idea on how I can achieve the conversion? Your assistance is highly needed.

To convert video from avi to wmv formats, you need to use a video conversion program. One that seems very highly-rated is the Prism Video Converter, available here: http://www.nchsoftware.com/prism/index.html

It works on works on Windows 7 XP/Vista or Mac OS 10.4 or later. A highly-rated free option is Freemake Video Converter, available here: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/fmvideocon.html .

That one is only for Windows 7/XP/vista. If you use Ubuntu or some other Linux variant, you should be able to find one by searching “Video Converter” in Synaptic. Have fun, and enjoy your video!
