    I got 2 files, both in avi format each at around 700mb, 701.8 to be exact. I got cd-r's that are 700mb. Is there anyway I can burn these so I can watch them on my dvd player? I had heard that toast would burn the file anyway, even if its a little bit over in size, but not true it wont work. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Some DVD players can read Xvid/DivX video files if they are burned onto a data-CD. You could also try burning the file in Toast as a Video CD, but this takes a while as Toast will need to re-encode the avi file first.

    If Toast can't do it then 'Burn' might.

    Find it on www.macupdate.com or search there for an app that can overburn.

    Or trim a bit of the file off if you can. Visual hub or D-Vision 3 might help you here.
