Essentially, I want to get my mp3's, which are on my Intel iMac, onto my Sandisk mp3 player. At present, the only way of transcoding the files into an acceptable format for the Sandisk is via a piece of Sandisk software which only works on Win XP. This is on my Wife's laptop. All the tunes are ripped from cd's or some old cassettes.

The plan is: Burn the melodies to a DVD (There are 4 Gig of mp3's), copy that to my Wife's machine and go from there.

When I have tried this, I get an error along the lines of 'DVD failed to burn lead in or lead out'. The DVD is unreadable.

That's the background. Questions are 1) Should I burn say, 2 Gig of stuff to 2 separate DVD's? Is Toast suitable for this exercise? Is there a better method? At the moment, a wireless connection isn't available

As a separate query: Is there a limit to the number of tunes that I can drag and drop into a new folder? I did recently 'consolidate library' - was this a mistake?

Any advice welcomed.

Cheers Mitcherooney

Hi Neo

Toast is the software.

PS I find that the mp3's are in the .Trash folder - seems odd....
