    I'm new to all this. I have found a mpeg on the internet and I'd like to copy it (or them) into Toast7 and burn a disc. However, copying the mpeg to the desktop gives me a file of zero size, although it'll play from the internet site.
    Any ideas ? Please.

    Which browser are you using? If you use firefox, you can go TOOLS > PAGE INFO > MEDIA and then somewhere down the list there should be a video file. It's easier to spot if if you look for a file type EMBED (just to the right of the file name). Highlight the video, and click SAVE AS, save to the desktop. It's ALWAYS worked for me! ;)
