    Hello,

    I have an mpeg film which is 700mb in size.

    I would love to be able to burn it onto a dvd.

    Ive tried using nero and when it converts it, it says there is not enough space and it would require a DVD-9 disk.

    is there any other way of doing this?

    any hep would be great

    thanks :)

    the total running time of the movie is 2Hours 9 Min & 10 seconds.

    I try to burn it using neros " make your own dvd-movie" but when i have added it, it comes up with this error

    I click OK but it tells me it cannot be done and should be tried manually .

    I use NeroVision 3. It's 'Standard Quality' setting defaults to a bitrate of 5073 kb/s. That's too high for your movie. You have to get it down to about 4400 kb/s. Look under your video options and see if there is a 'Custom' option for quality where you can input 4400 kb/s (it has be there somewhere).

    Thanks for your help.

    I tried changing it to 4400 kb/s and the mpeg copied onto my dvd-r.

    the only problem now is, is when we watched it last night the sound was all. probably about a two second delay.

    is there anyway i can correct this? or this a result of altering the bitrate?

    thanks

    Although I like Nero when it comes to Xvid/Divx AVI's most have VBR (variable bit rate) audio which Nero can't handle very well resulting in audio sync problems. But you say this was an mpeg? Usually 700MB files I see are AVI's.

    The video bitrate has nothing to do with your sync problems.

    Run it through this free app and see what it says.
