    Hi,

    The 120 minute rating is rather misleading. A more accurate measurement is to go by the rating in GB of which a blank DVD can safely hold 4.3.

    How big is the AVI that you're wishing to burn?

    You're wanting to view this movie on a standard DVD player, yes?

    If that's the case, you'll need to transcode your AVI with something like TMPGEnc then to VOB, IFO, BUP files with TMPEnc DVD Author.

    Depending on the source file size and your system specs it can most definitely take up to 20 hours.

    Transcoding is extremely CPU and RAM intensive so the faster the CPU and the more RAM you have the better.

    At nearly 700MB your file is a biggie so that will account for quite a bit of time :)

    It's hard for me to say exactly what size the resulting files will be but if it's over 4.4GB you can use DVD Shrink to compress the files to fit a blank DVD :)
