I recorded Heroes. I wanted to put it on a dvd so I could watch it by using my magnavox dvd player in the living room. Found a neat program to edit the commercials. EXTREMELY time consuming to do but hey I was one step closer to what I wanted.

Decided to use the Dell version of Roxio MYDVD LE. Clicked on add files, clicked on my the folder edited videos. After many minutes I changed my mind so clicked on cancel and this came up "the file Heroes dvr-ms contains non-compliant dvr-ms video. you can still choose to import this file. However, doing so will result in the file being transcoded. Would you like to continue?" I clicked on no and a box with a red arrow in a circle came up saying "this file is not a valid MPG file - 20400" Ok!

Over to MCE I go to create the dvd. It asks me if I want the quality of the contents lowered so that it fits. I say yes. Only for it to tell me there is not enough room on the cd/dvd. Please select fewer files. The file was cut from 1 hour to 39 minutes.
I am using a FujiFilm DVD +RW 120 min 4.7GB

My computer: XPS400; 1GB ddr2 sdram; 256mb NVidia GeForce 7900GS; 250GB Sata II Hard Drive; MCE 2005 16xdvd rom and 16xdvd+/-RW

Does anyone know what in the world I am doing wrong? Did I use the wrong dvd? Is it something in MCE?
Thanks for any/all help
