    OK, here's one for you.

    I encoded the files so that they are 700MB's each. By this theory, I should be able to fit in at least 6 mp2 files to fit on one DVD 4.7GB disc. Yet, it only lets me fit three, saying I've gone over the 4.7 limit. How can this be possible? Or is it just HP's software just mucking up here?

    Thanks

    Damn! I'd say it's mucking up big time -- OR -- try giving the disc in question a full reformat. Yes, that will take about an hour, but I've had instances where it got confused about a disc until I did a full reformat. Hey, it's rewritable -- what? -- some 999 times? One full reformat to clean it off ain't gonna hurt it. [​IMG]
    Is the HP software their own or is it an HP branded version of someone else's software? (The copyright will normally give it way.)

    The one I be using is called Sonic MyDVD.

    Not really sure if it's from HP or not. However, nero won't let me burn it unless I have a seperate video file to go with it, so that's out of luck as well..

    Could be a limit to the number of titles that MyDVD can handle

    Nope, that's sadly not it either[​IMG]. I managed to create my first one with about 7 20 minute files on it in VCD encoded format..
    This one is in MPeg2 Encoded format. 320x240, 44.100KHZ 16bit stereo. 4.28 MB/second.
    Video CD files that did encode properly to DVD where in MPEG 1, 352X240, 1.05MB/second, 44.100KHZ, 16Bit Stereo..
