    I downloaded a 312MB .mpg file from the internet. If I copy to a CD, will it play on a TV-with-stand-alone DVD player? Do I need to change the file format, and if so, to what and how? Robert

    Depends on your dvd player, and what it will play. for example some dvd players will play a shop bought music cd and a burned cd with mp3 files. However 312mb will not fit onto a cd and therefore I suspect you need to burn this to a dvd disc using some sort of disc creating software such as nero or roxio. I think you can also achieve this with windows movie maker depending on your version of windows....Vista home premium should do this using windows media centre. Others will be along soon to give you better guidance Im sure.

    Why? The capacity of a CD is in the 600MB-700MB range.
