    I'm trying to burn some .avi files onto a disc.

    I'm using windows media player and it says they cannot be burned. There is an X beside the movie file name there is an X. I click the X and click error details. It says the files is too large to fit on the disc. This is totally untrue.

    The disc is a standard DVD :S I don't get whats going on, I remember I've burned video files before but I think I made a data disc, I forget how to do this.

    Also, could it be this SecuRom thing I'm hearing about. I heard it comes with the Spore Creature Creator and can stop burning from working. I bought the Spore Creature Creator through direct download.

    Thank you.

    edit: I have Data Disc checked and it still has this stupid problem.

    The Burn dropdown on Windows Media Player on an XP system says Audio CD or Data CD. Notice that it says CD, not DVD and if yours says Disc, it still means CD not DVD.
