Yes you will be wasting a CD. What is the extension of your current file? .avi .mpg?? If you just simply burn it, you can't play it in your DVD. You have to convert it to vcd format first!

and choose from what format to what you are trying to convert and follow the instruction. Good Luck!!

the biggest problem coming when converting to vcd is that u can't burn anything above 80min or so in a vcd even though the actual .avi or .mpg file is smaller than 700 mg. at the very first step most of the cd burning software will ask what kind of format you want. specify vcd and you will be guided through.
