not really how it works
it can't determine how big mostly becuase it doesn't know the media before
it hits it
if it is a simple image it will take up less space than a complicated

so i don't understand this final cut would abort
you need to export to a local drive
use the compression sorenson 3
i have found that it is the best bang for your buck
lowest size - best looking
try that
see what file size you get needs to be less than 4GB
burn it to a dvd via toast or just in your disk utility

need more instruction? - send questions
