    Hey all,

    I was just wondering that I have a few DVDs I downloaded (Shh xD) that are in .AVI files and I want to share them with family (on my home TV, cousins, etc.)

    But the problem is, I DON'T KNOW HOW. Now my friend gave me Toast 8 which I here is very good. I put The Simpsons Movie in and such and the first copy came out a failure. CD wasted. The second copy came out pretty good. Worked and all, not bad. But I forgot which settings I used.

    Anyway, back to the point. I want to burn AVI files to my DVD player (average player, doesn't support DVIX or AVI or whatnot). If anyone is a Toast user, do you know which settings I should use?

    Thanks for the info.

    Use the DVD Video tab, add the AVI files and keep all the settings in the bottom left corner set to automatic and you should get good results.

    (Sorry, I can't be more specific with the settings, I'm on my work PC :eek: )
