Burning An AVI File with Toast!

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum, but i've browsed around and like what I see.
    Anyways I'm new to burning dvds, so far i'm 0 for 2. I have FFMPEGX,DVD2ONEX, SIZZLE, and Toast. Perfect combinations right? I guess not. So I decided to skip the three steps and go straight to toast. I tried dragging the avi file to toast, but I get an alert telling me: cannot import because a required codec could not be found. The confusing thing is the avi file works with my quicktime player, but I cannot import it into toast with a specific codec. I already have: Divx, 3ivx, and Ac3. I heard about Quicktime MPEG 2 Component, but is it necessary and worth 19.99.
    I hope someone can help me!

    first of all if u drag the avi to toast it will convert it to a dvd, but it will take about 24 hours to do that. ( i know) when u say 0 for 2 are those from dvd's or from avi's? if it is from a dvd then read the guides that we havbe for that.

    i have upgraded to toast 7 and it is a God send. instead of 24 hours, it is like 7 or 8. second, to get it onto a cd, then you need to start up toast, choose video cd and burn

    i'm having issues too with .avi files, wah! i'm trying to make a video CD with toast; unfortunately it's converting the files & making them too big to put on a single cd. what a pain! for example, a file that's 691 megs ends up being 800+megs, after i've dragged & dropped it, and tried to burn it. i upgraded to 7.0.1 thinking that it would take care of the problem. but nope. anybody got any tips? :( my computer is running out of space...
