Hi Peter ,
              You are confusing the amount of recording time stated (200 mins) with the disk blurb (I like that word blurb...lol.. ) with the actual amount of data you are trying to burn to the DVD !
                                                                         If your MP4 movie is super high quality or high definition and is 4.7 Gigabytes and 20 minutes long , your DVD-R will only store that amount of data and no more.
                         The capacity of most DVD-R's is about 4.7 Gigabytes or 120 minutes ?  it might say it can store 200 minutes , but this is only a guide and depends entirely on what quality the movie is and what compression technique was used to produce the mp4.
                            If this isnt the case and you are sure its no more than 4.7GB and your still having trouble burning over 20 minutes of video, the drive could be faulty or the software your using to burn the DVD -R isnt set up correctly , you need a very big hard drive to burn DVD's (I suggest at least 160 GB ) and as much RAM memory as you can afford to put in your computer.
                                                                                        You need this to cache (or temporarily store) the movie  file and the software has to be set up properly to use a large cache.Not all DVD-R's do what they say on the case , most say they burn at 16X but ive yet to find a DVD-R that will burn every time and do a good job of it at 16X,I have to lower the burn speed to 8X or lower to get good consistent results...some cheap brands will burn in some drives and not others and buying really cheap DVD -R's  is false economy you end up with lots of cheap drinks coasters...or other drives will not read the data you have recorded..
hope this has helped you Peter ..

How do you copy Youtube videos to DVDs using 123 Copy DVD Gold?


You usually download youtube vids as FLV files, there are plenty of free file conversion programs to change flv to avi or whatever format you want, you can then burn them onto a disc.
I have never used your software, so i am not sure if it handles flv files.If your dvd player will play avi/divx files, you could convert then to avi and burn them as a data disc using ant burning software, i use free software for this. CD burner XP and imgburn.
It sats this about your software..
  • Copy ANY DVD.
  • Burn YouTube videos to DVD.
  • Copy episodic shows like The Sopranos or *** and the City.
  • Autofit technology gives you the best possible quality.
  • Convert ANY DVD to DivX, AVI, Windows Media (WMV), and MPEG.
  • Burn videos downloaded from the internet to DVD.
  • Blu-Rays Upgradeable (Copy Blu-Ray Movies).
  • Copy DVD to Hard Disk.
So your software should be able to burn your dvd, there should be a HELP menu on the software.
