    I don't want to STORE them on the DVD, I want to be able to play them in a DVD player. What's the easiest way to do this? I already tried just dropping them on, the player won't read them.

    Is there a fast way to do this in iDVD?

    use Toast.

    at the bottom right hand corner, if the quarter-circle is pretty full, but still green, they will fit.

    If it is any shade of red, it will not fit, and you will have to remove 1 or 2 files and put them on a second disc

    a dvd is 4.7-8GBs depending on DL or not. 3x175 isn't even 1GB. it should fit for sure.

    Original file size is irrelevant since it's going to get encoded to MPEG-2 so DVD players can read it. The length of the vidoes, not the file size, is what matters.

    Ah, but when it encoded the files, it turned them into 700MB each...

    It took 2 DVDs.
