PLEASE DON'T USE ALL CAPS, IT IS EXTREMELY ANNOYING!

OK, what video settings did you use to compress the movie?  On the Output options (the little gray filmstrip icon), click the Video Pass 1 button and choose a different Codec.  If you don't have DivX, get that from www.divx.com (assuming you want to make the movie to play on your computer only; otherwise you want VCD which is the DVDx default and will play in most newer "set top" DVD players on your TV).  So once you have DivX installed, reopen DVDx and click the Output settings, then Video Pass 1 button, choose DivX 5.03 Codec from the list, then Configure.  Now I have 5.02, 5.03 which is the only one you can get from divx.com is different, but you'll want to choose a lower bitrate which is probably the problem you're having.  Then choose the setting for "Volume don't exceed" either as 80 minute VCD or 80 minute ISO DataCD.  This will break up the "chunks" of the movie into ~700MB files that you can burn to CDR.

I agree (though I don't know what this is doing in the Storage TA)...the configuration instructions I gave should allow him to create a DivX on 1 CDR (though the quality may be degraded....).  Since rob1102 never bothered to reply...who knows?

Guess this question would have been better off in the Apps TA, but ok..
