    :confused: I have been trying for three days to convert and burn to DVD a movie that I downloaded as an .avi file....I have converted it many times with many different programs and whenever I try to burn it, it is always too big for the disk. The closest I have come was with WinAVI which converted it into two files...however, they are still too big (over 5 gig)....I am totally lost!!! what do I do next???

    Try to buy/order a copy of the DVD so you'll have the best quality and quit messing around with DVD copying software. I have found that however much you spend on the software, the quality always stinks !!!!

    Wil it be worth all the time and effort?
    Maybe, if you have a TV from 1970 and the picture tube needs to be degaussed.

    You can use Nero 6 Ultra Edition found at www.nero.com to convert your avi to dvd video. They have a demo version but i'm not sure if that includes the dvd video plugin-you may have to purchase a serial key. The Ultra Edition comes with Nero Vision Express which allows you to create a dvd video from an avi according to your specifications. I have used it many times and it works really well, it is worth purchasing.

    Uh...Step 1: put the .avi into Premiere. Let Premiere Pro render it. The file will be very large. Now, using Roxio DVD Creator, put the rendered .avi on the DVD and Roxio will compress it for you.

    That's always worked for me.
