    I have about 80 music videos in mpeg format that I want 2 burn 2 dvd. I used Windows Movie Maker (its easier 4 me) to create the playlist & saved the file as a AVI. That file is 4.1gb. I then used WinAvi to create a VOB so I could burn. (I've dont this a million times in this same process & it worked fine, but I was dealing with 500mb-1.5gb files. I think Im having a problem b/c I now have a 4gb file.)

    BTW, The file plays fine with any player that I've used.

    Anyway, WinAvi turned my 4.1gb avi into a 6.5gb VOB. Of course I cant burn that 2 a standard dvd so I dont know where 2 go from here.

    Any help would be appreciated......

    I don't know. You could try to split the AVI into two using VirtualDub (look on http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/). Or you could try to fit all in a DVD applying DVD Shrink to the 6 GB VOB, to reduce its size, if you're too much interested in keeping 100% of the original quality...
