Downloaded a copyright free movie and it was downloaded as an mp4 file that opens and runs fine in quick time. I'm trying to put it on a disk for backup and i cant seen to do this with either Apple Disk Utility or whatever i have. I'll just list what i have and maybe u can help weed through all of the programs that i just acquired. I want the best of the programs. I'm getting the newest os as we speak.

OS 10.4.1
isquid
crossover
toast 6 titanium
transmission
final cut 3.o
vixy beta converter
idvd

thanks

Are you putting it on a DVD disk for later viewing in region-accepting home DVD players, or are you using this disk simply as a way to back it up?

If you're simply backing it up, you shouldn't have to do anything more than create a burn folder in finder and burn it.

If you're using a CD-R as a data disk, keep in mind that they typically only hold about 650MB of data, and most decent DVDrips average around 700MB.
