    i have a .avi file just over a gig and am using Roxio to convert the file and burn it onto dvd. It's been about 30 minutes and the converting process is only a quarter finished!! i have a 1.67ghz Powerbook G4. is there a faster process or program i can use to burn dvd's?

    not really

    it typcially takes a LONG TIME for the encoding process of video, it has to be reformatted then burned so it takes a while. i did that with about two hours of movie in avi format, first importing to imovie and then burining to a dvd so it would play on commercial dvd players an not just comps. Whole process took about 10 hours, i have a 1.5 ghz pb with 4x superdrive, so it is a similar time check. Gl with everythiing and remember, patience is a virtue.

    I'm not sure if this would work or not,

    but maybe you can make a VIDEO_TS folder and put the files you would like to burn in there, then make it an image file and burn it through disc utilities. ?????????
