I'm new to disc burning, and have quite a few blank DVD-R's at my disposal lying about the place. I've already backed up files to one, but I've never burned a movie for use with a DVD player. I would like to, but no single movie file I have is even half as large as the capacity that the DVD's can fit. Can multiple video files be burned to a disc for viewing with a DVD player? It seems like an awful waste of space to only include a 1.42 GB video on a 4.38 GB disc. Thanks.

Are your videos in AVI format? Did you get these online? If so, you could prob burn them as a Data DVD and play them in a Divx compatible DVD player. That would allow you to burn more then one video and fill up that 4.7gig disc.

Well, yes, they are in AVI format, but the DVD "player" I want to use is that of my xbox 360, I don't know if that's that "divx compatible" that you mentioned.

Ah! Xbox 360. All you do it burn as a Data DVD and you should be good to go.

If you aren't able to play the video, it could be a number of things. You may get an error. Just post it here and I'll try to help you out.

I burnt many video's for my friend with an Xbox 360 and he hasn't had any issues. Another friend did have an issue but all he did was update his Xbox (automatic prompt) and all was well after.

This sounds familiar--I don't have an internet connection that I can use for my 360, so I can't update the system now. I used to, and because of that I could get the update that allowed me to play videos from my flash drive. But after I didn't have a connection anymore, and there was one time when I played a game that automatically installed an update to the system and my 360 lost the information that allowed it to play those videos. T.T internet is the only way to apply the update isn't it?
