Let's say this is some AVI or similar file and you wanted to make some Video DVD. The result can be as you told.
-> Let me share what I use to make such Video DVDs. It's called DVD FLICK.
Since DVD FLICK is free, found with ease and has an excellent tutorial I'll stop here.
My other trouble is with my sonic-My/Dvd When I try to burn 700 mb. files it shows the file as much larger than 4.6 gb. I can burn it to a DL 8.5 gb disc. My Roxio Creator 2009 sees the same file as 700 mb and has no trouble putting it on a 4.6 gb disc with "excellent" or "same as original" quality. I have windows XP. For awhile I couldn't even put the files into My/Dvd to get ready to burn I have deleted my DIVX player and codec files as suggested in the My/Dvd Help section.I can now put the files in but they
seem to be much larger than they actually are.
