ok first of all i have had this dvd burner since 10/23/02 and i still have yet to make a dvd. all i want to do is take the downloads i have and put them on a dvd. the burner came with MY DVD software and that is great for vcd's but uses to much space for a dvd (45min show 85mb avi = 2.8 gig dvd huh!) well i got my hands on some software called MOVIE FACTORY and i just used it to formate the files and then MY DVD software to to burn it (cause MOVIE FACTORY only suports dvd- drives). and it goes and 20 mins later crashes every time. i have win xp, 1.5gz athlon pros. 256mb ram and a ati 9000 128mb vid card can you help me or sugest a better software to make dvd's.
