I'm stumped. This is the first time I've tried using iDVD (7.0.1) and I'm using the "Magic iDVD" option to create a project. I have a folder of about 12 AVI files, all of which add up to less than 400MB. Once I add them to the project, it tells me that the size is too large to fit on a 4.7GB disk. Huh?

I'm sure I'm missing something simple, but I can't find it. I already have the quality in Project Info set to "Best Performance" which says it can hold 4.58 GB's. What am I missing?

Ah, I see, I had it backwards. I was interpreting the settings for quality wrong. I set it to "Professional" and now have enough space. The wording really doesn't make sense to me.
