I keep getting an error message stating, “the estimated total size of all menus is greater than the maximum of 1GB”, when I go to make DVD. My video is 1.33 GB, which is not large at all. I am quite new to this software, and need some help.I haven’t added any menus at all. Thank you,

How are you adding the video?
DVDA may think it’s a menu item which is why you’re getting the error message.

I open DVD architect,and I drag both audio and video files to the timeline. I then go to MAKE DVD on the top- click burn, and NEXT and receive that error message.

…I drag both audio and video files to the timeline.
DVDA is treating that step as a menu so that’s why you’re getting the error message.
If you want it to be a single play DVD (no menu), then you need to go File – New – Single Movie and browse to the folder with the files.
If you want a menu, then double-click the video file.
If the audio file has the same name (and it should), it will be added automatically.
If it doesn’t, then add it as well.

Glad to help Karl.
It happened to me once and I got just as frustrated trying to figure it what was going on.

I follow your advice here to go to FILE but i do not get the NEW option and am only asked via a dialogue box, do i want to save the project? What do i do now? I must admit, that as a 60 something year old I am finding this program quite difficult to understand, especially the jargon. Although I am managing to create dvd’s with music etc it is not without great angst. Pls bear with me.
