I have been trying to put to gather a srt subtitle file and a avi file and I’m using AVIAddXSub program to do this. However, I’m having trouble writing the correct path. I keep on getting failed messages, for example:

[1.avi] “1.srt” not found WARNING:1 FILE(S) FAILED. See above. END OF OPERATION.

[1.avi.avi]
No srt or idx/sub files found
Looking for:
“1.avi.srt”
[and if this exists optionally:
“1.avi-2.srt”
or “1.avi-3.srt”
or “1.avi-4.srt”
or “1.avi-5.srt”
or “1.avi-6.srt”
or “1.avi-7.srt”
or “1.avi-8.srt”]
or “1.avi.idx”+
“1.avi.sub”
1.srt.srt]
No srt or idx/sub files found
Looking for:
“1.srt.srt”
[and if this exists optionally:
“1-2.srt-2.srt”
or “1-3.srt-3.srt”
or “1-4.srt-4.srt”
or “1-5.srt-5.srt”
or “1-6.srt-6.srt”
or “1-7.srt-7.srt”
or “1-8.srt-8.srt”]
or “1.srt.idx”+
“1.srt.sub”
WARNING: 2 FILE(S) FAILED. See above.

I have been writing like this:
“I:\Documents and Settings\ComputerBoffs\Desktop\sub\VIDEO\1.avi.avi|I:\Documents and Settings\ComputerBoffs\Desktop\sub\VIDEO\1.srt.srt”

I have tried numerous ways. Please help! I really enjoy watching Asian movies and would love to be able to watch them on my PS3. Would appreciate anyone’s advice. Thank You!

    I'm getting ".avi not found" even though I'm trying to encode an .mp4.  I feel like the gui is pretty simple yet made for just .avi.

    1.Create a shortcut of AVIAddXSubs.exe in your desktop.
    2.In a directory place the AVI file and its associated (same name) srt. e.g. movie.avi and movie.srt.
    3.Drag & Drop any number of avi files (in the same folder) to the icon of AVIAddXSubs in the desktop. You can also drag&drop any number of folders instead of separate files. In this case avi/divx files in these folders and their sub-folders will be processed. You can also start the program with a right click on a selected avi (or group, even a group of folders). See "Right Content menu option" at "Configuration 2" tab.
    4.At Configuration/SUB1 edit character set and language to your local (Use ANSI for character set in case of English/Spanish/Italians/Germans etc).
    5.At "Configuration 1""SUB 1" select XSUB (default) or Idx/Sub.
    6.Press "Start"

    Go to configuration1/sub1

    Make sure you activate XSUB (top left corner)

    Then look at bottom left: srt extension.

    if your film is named "Me.avi" and your subtitle is named "Me-en.srt", type in "-en", so all that's coming after the film name, but without the extension.

    For Me-clip.avi and Me-clip.01.srt, type in ".01"

    Don't forget to set the language correctly and maybe you will need to adjust the character set.
