Unknown AVI

I have been converting avi to vcd for long time now and had no problem doing so. Today however i got an AVI file that wouldn't play in Winamp, Windows Media player, or Real player. But it does play in Divx player. I use Canopus Procoder 2 to convert video files and it converts every type of files but wont convert this one. I tried other converters to convert this file but they all come up with some error. Can anyone tell me whats wrong with the file, and give a solution to this problem. Thanks.

    1.ACE Mega CoDecS Pack

  5. Google "g spot codec information appliance to find out what type of file is contained in the avi. If the file was downloaded from the web it may be corrupt or poorly assembled.
