Hi. I have more than one question so I'll just start with this. and thanks for the help. 1.Why is my dvd burner slow when I am trying to burn .avi files. I use nerovision express 2, and I select the project "make a dvd". 2.Would my dvd disc work on my dvd player if I burn it as data. 3. Why when I click on a media file on my hd to check how much space will it take, it gives me 200MB for example. Then when I try to burn it as a Dvd using nero, it covers about 500MB. 4.I ripped a dvd that has about 7GB. I was wondering if there is a way for me to burn it into a dvd disc that holds about 5GB. 5.My last question. I upgraded my pc with a dvd burner, so now I have to decide whether I keep my cd burner or my dvd rom. What choice would be best? Sorry for so many questions, but any help that I can get would certainly be appreciated. thanks.
