Your DVD player might play .wmv files. mine does. IF not I'd burn it as a VCD on a CD and not a DVD. You won't gain any quality by doing so. Can't help with Toast. I'm a PC guy.

I'm afraid you'll have to buy Flip4Mac WMV Player Pro which will enable QuickTime to export WMV files to more DVD friendly formats and will allow Toast to accept a WMV file as happily as it does an MPG or MOV/AVI.

you'll need to convert the .wmv to mpeg2 for DVD or mpeg1 for VCD. like ffooky noted.

Thanks for all the help. If I had a friend with a PC would it be easier and be free of a cost on my end?
