    MacBook Pro DVD app !!
    Hi guys ..

    I have just got my first MacBook Pro,
    How can i burn AVI movies onto DVDs to play them on my home DVD player,
    Im using Toast Titanuim, i dont want to burn AVI files as DVD movies, just normal burn as data ( like in PCs ), then play them on my DVD player.
    I tried Mac built in software but my home DVD player couldnt play it !!

    Your DVD player in your entertainment center plays just plain AVI's on a DVD without converting? In other words, on your Windows machine, you just burned a DATA DVD with the AVI file on it and your set top DVD player would play it upon insert ?

    Burn them as data discs in Toast.
    @Dtravis. Some do, especially cheap ones it seems, my daughters 30 player plays AVI from data discs. It looks rubbish, but it works!

    That's normal for the built-in burner. It works fine.

    As Kevriano said, just burn the files to a data disc in Toast (ISO9000 is fine).

    If that doesn't work, select the Video tab and choose the DIVX option. That should do the trick.

    I'm actually using the previous version of Toast (9), never saw a compelling reason to go to 10, but here's what it looks like on mine:
