    I have 182 episodes os Seinfeld, I finally got them to work using Nero Express. But I saw that I can only put 4 of them on a DVD-R, is there a way to put more on the DVD? I am looking to put a lot more...4 isn't enough.

    'can i shrink my files' <-- what files are they ? lol

    If you're using Nero to encode avi/mpg files to VOB format then you'll prbably have error message from Nero saying project size is too large for 4.3Gb media.
    I sometimes use MainConcept MPEG Encoder to encoder avi/mpg file(s) to MPEG-2 [dvd complaint]. Then TMPGEnc DVD Author to convert to VOB ... you've to ignore the error message and then when thats done & you have all relevant VOB/BUP/IFO files - use DVD Shrink/DVD2One to compress to needed size :)

    Herbsman, what I did was, I just went burn in Nero, and it started transcoding the files, then when it finished, it started burning. They are mpeg files, and how would I use DVD Shrink?

    Well I'd suggest not using Nero Express personally and trying something that lets you have more control over encoding (I use Nero a lot , but not for encoding).

    If you encode avi/mpg files to VOB/BUP/IFO format ... even tho project size came out as 6.8GB (for example) - open DVD Shrink and select the option 'open files' ... choose the folder that contains the VOBs etc and compress as you need ; )
