    Does anyone know if I can do this? I am trying to put this video file into a DVD format to play on standard DVD decks. I know how to do this, but this file is Xvid and is 640x256. With NeroVision Express, it tells me that 9.63GB is needed to burn the file. Is this because it is converting the AVI to VOB? Why does that increase the size of the file?

    I guess maybe I would need to convert the AVI to MPG with TPMPG maybe? I'm just not sure what needs to be done with this type file to get it to a single 4.7gb DVD+R. Many thanks in advance for the help.
