Problems Burning Multiple Movies On One Dvd



Hi all , I just " upgraded " to Toast 11 and Snow Leopard . I used Toast 8 without issues for years ! Set it for DIVX drag over 4 or 5 movies and burn ( NTSC or Pal .... it didn't seem to care ).... done in 12 minutes or so. This thing ( toast 11 ) I drag over 2 or 3 and at the bottom will say I still have room left on the dvd , but when I hit burn all of a sudden they add up to over 7 gigs when each movie is only 700 - 900 mb ???????? Not to mention the hoops you have to jump through to get there ..


Anyone know how to how to help an old guy fix this mess ? I spent almost 100 bucks on this thing .... seems to be more trouble than anything.


MUCH appreciated in advance.

Roxio discontinued the DivX disc feature in Toast after Toast 9. You can still make a DivX disc from existing DivX videos by using the Data window and choosing ISO 9660 as the format.


If you had chosen DVD video as the format in Toast 8 it would do the same thing as you're getting with Toast 11 as far as the re-encoding and making the file size larger. That's just the way it is with MPEG 2 video compared with the MPEG 4 DivX files.


You should keep Toast 8 around if you want to encode video from other formats into DivX format.
