Repair Broken AVI File Index

“Hi there, my AVI file index is broken and I have been looking to solve this problem manually, but unable to do so. I converted some of the video files to AVI file format to make them compatible to play with other media players and after those video files have been converted to AVI file format; I keep getting the error message stating that ‘AVI file index is broken, cannot open the AVI file’. What should I do now? I used some AVI file repair programs but they didn’t bring me any luck. Any suggestions on which repair utility can be implemented to fix broken index in AVI file permanently. Thanks a lot”
