    I have converted two .avi files on my MBP to the .iso file. Then I open up the two files and they become the Audio_TS and Video_TS folders.

    However, when I try and drag those to Toast, and try to burn the files, Toast always gives me an error.

    My question, how do correctly convert .avi files to dvd format so I can burn to a blank DVD? I want more than one .avi file converted to dvd format on each DVD.

    thanks.

    If you have them in .iso format, you can burn them using Disk Utility's Burn Image function.

    I can put multiple .iso files on a DVD using that?

    Will that work on standard DVD Players?

    thanks.

    Only one .iso per disc.

    You can use the app Burn (free) to burn multiple avi files as a video DVD. This would be a better solution.

    basically I'm trying to burn more than one episode to a DVD.

    What is the best way to go about this?

    Use Burn to create a video DVD.

    Not sure then, never encountered that problem ... although, it might mean the software is having trouble transcoding the avi file, which may be one of a number of different codecs.

    You can use MPEG StreamClip to convert the video files, then Burn to put them on DVD. Long process, yes, but it will accomplish your goal.

    i just realized I am suppose to put the .avi file i want to convert to DVD in the program.

    So if I do this, and it converts it, will I be able to put more than one episode on a DVD that will play in DVD Players?

    Yes. Just add all the avi files to the disc in Burn.

    Hello! I am having the same problem with trying to burn a video dvd to a blank Memorex 4.7gb DVD-R disk. I get the same "There was a problem authoring the DVD". And i am not able to burn to the blank disk. I have searched other sites and i keep seeing people stating that you need to compress the VIDEO_TS FOLDER, but the videos i want to burn are 4.09 gb at most, so there should be enough space left correct? I have ripped the original media file from another dvd using MacTheRipper. Is it possible that MTR is not extracting the TS Folders properly?

    Im currently using a:
    MacBook;Mac OS X version 10.4.11
    2 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo
    1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

    This is giving me a head ache. Im new to this burning business. Can some one explain whats going on? Any Solutions?
