    hi
    I am having a problem burning the movies I downloaded from limewire. I have try to shrink the movies but it said that it is still too big to put on a dvd/cd/ What am I doing wrong? Also the rare times that this works, the dvd/cd will not run on my dvd player on the tv. Please help and give me detail instructions.
    Thanking all of you in advance

    It's very simple when using the correct tools (software) correctly, if you do this often, then you won't mind paying a little $$ for the software application that makes it all work.

    Buy convertxtodvd, it's the best at doing what you're trying to do and works every time.

    It's this simple:
    1) Download the movie, if it's in a compressed format, then extract the contents of the file. If you need an extraction app, try using a favorite of mine called 7-zip (it's free).

    2) Run convertxtodvd and add the video file, configure convertxtodvd to convert the video files to either the PAL or NTSC format and set it to save the files on your hard drive or burn them directly to DVD (your choice, convertxtodvd has a burning app).

    If you have convertxtodvd save the files to your hard drive, you'll have to burn them to DVD manually yourself.

    Note: you can change the size of the files to fit on a DVD-5 disk, under convertxtodvd target size setting.
