Hi, thank you to both for your responses (and sorry for the delay - internet down for several days). Klaus, I have a whole bunch of standard DVDs I'm trying to use up I'm afraid. Kirk, I downloaded MPEG S and tried to compress one of the files (avi to avi), but I don't know what happened - the quality was horrible and the image off-center. Great that it's free, but not the easiest application for the novice! Any suggestions about settings appreciated - I need to get a 360MB file down to about 275MB whilst maintaining quality as much as possible. And need to keep it avi so my (aged) DVD machine can read it....
(still am amazed that Toast can't cope with this as a standard process...)

Toast can burn data DVD's but can't compress the data. It does compress when burning a standard definition DVD (MPEG-2 format) to make things fit.
I don't use MPEG Streamclip enough to know more about its settings options and don't use AVI container files, either.
Simple solution? Delete the smallest file in the list of files to make things fit.
