I am attempting to burn three AVI video files (compressed with Direct X) to a Dual Layer DVD (8.5 GIG) using Nero.
The three video files total 5.5 GIG and two of these files are over 2 GIG each (one is 2.8 GIG, the other is 2.6 GIG).
So, I insert the Dual Layer DVD into my DVD drive (and the DVD drive allows for Dual Layer burning). I go to Nero, select to make a data DVD (since the videos are to be used in a Macromedia Director Projector file).
Anyway, it recognizes that the DVD is a dual layer and states that it is 8.5 GIG in size. So, I add my three AVI video files and think I am safe to burn now. However, I get a message saying one of the files is over 2 GIG in size and so will only be able to be read by PCs using Windows 98, 2000 and XP...no problem for me there, I am happy. So, I proceed with burning (knowing I still have some 3 GIG of space left on the DVD). It gets to about 18/19% of burning and then errors. The DVD is then wasted and I am stumped as to why this is happening! Is it because I have files that are over 2 GIG in size? Please help someone, I am becoming so frustrated!
