every time just before the burn software is about to process video it quits unexpectedly,it converts my MP4 into MPG to allow play on a normal DVD player but will not burn it,I have used it in the past with no problem,could it be that I am trying to burn 1080p movies and Burn can not do this or am I missing something any suggestions will be most welcome.

Using a Blu-Ray burner? If so Toast Titanium 11 will burn.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

thanks for the reply but it does not realy answer my question wether the burn software that i downloaded for free called "Burn" will do 1080p dvd, I'm not trying to burn Blue Ray dvd just normal 1080p to play on a normal dvd. hope this explains my question a little better.

No, "Burn" will not do 1080P nor will any other software without using a Blue Ray burner. Harry gave you the correct answer since "Toast" (Mac) or "Roxio" (Windows) can burn to Blue Ray.

DVD doesn't support 1080 (it maxes out at 720x576) but as burn is converting the file that shouldn't cause an issue.

However, if you're burn to DVD video it should be creating VOB files not mpg files.

Do the mpg files play ok on your Mac?

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Unrelated to the resolution issue: Burn and other DVD-burning programs require vast amounts of free space in order to work properly. That maybe were your problem actually lies, though you still won't be able to make a non-BR DVD burn any higher resolution than 720x480 (the NTSC max -- mrplow was referring to PAL DVDs, which have slightly higher resolution).
