    How can I burn large files? All up they are about 3 GB. I tried using Toast and burning it to Mac only but something happened. I don't want to waste all my DVDs. Should I try again? Or is there some other process I can use?

    Can you be more specific about "something" which happened?

    For starters, if you have hard drive space, try duplicating the file. That will indicate whether the file itself is corrupt.

    Then, try setting the software to burn at something lower than the maximum speed of the drive.

    Dont run any other software at the same time. You don't want to underflow the buffer because your machine is busy doing something else.

    Try another brand of DVD blank.
