    Ive been using this program for quite some time now, and with my experience with the program, the new guide for DVD Santa, there is one thing that needs to be pointed out, otherwise your DVD creations will lose audio/video sync towards the end of the movie.

    Take these steps immediatley after you load your film into the program:
    -Click on "advanced" tab.
    -In the "Target Disc Size" column, on the "4700000000 bytes" change the "7" to a "3".
    -This keeps the size of the movie from getting to the extreme edge of the dvd disc when it burns, which keeps it from making the error of desynching issues.


    --You will need to do this EVERY TIME you use the program.--

    That's it!

    Ive seen on a lot of guides that the target size should be about 4300, and many people have also mentioned this too as well on the boards.

    The 4300 size is a failsafe for cheaper media as Rotary stated. With the better quality media you can go to the full size dvd5. Most set it to 4300 and leave it there if they use different brands of media. That way they don't need to worry if the outer edge is good or not. I only use Ritek grade A media and don't even think about that problem.
