single layer disk image too big to burn



When I use Toast 8 to compress up to 8GBs of video to put on a single layer DVD, I have had a few coasters that ended up being partially burned but were no good. In those cases, Toast acted like it had done the job all right.


To prevent more coasters, I now first Save as a Disk Image in Toast 8. Toasts then asks me if I am saving for a Single Layer or Dual Layer disk and I pick Single Layer. It compresses the VIDEO_TS folder and saves it as a disk image.


The problem is that some of the saved disk images are just a little too big to burn on a single layer dvd, so Toast compresses it again before burning. The DVDs come out to where I can view them, but have noticed on some of them, the navigation doesn't always work right. Also, on a recent TV series of 4 episodes on one disc I had compressed and burned, I could watch each episode until about the last 5 minutes and then it would stop playing. I can't be sure that Toast's compression is the cause of those glitches, but it is suspicious.
