    Hi Guys,

    Some advice is required regarding the above. By the way, I'm not a newbie when it comes to converting & burning video files, but I am, shall we say, a little bit stumped with this.

    Basically, I have 13 episodes of a season 1 series - each episode roughly 300mb - in AVI format on my hard drive. I generally use AVS 6.3 to convert from AVI to DVD.

    I fully expected being able to burn this series on to one 4.3gb DVD. However AVS is telling me that the least amount of discs I can burn to is 2 discs, this is on the lowest LP setting of AVS. A higher setting results in more disc being needed to burn.

    I originally added all 13 episodes in one go to AVS but it crashed, so now I'm converting each episode one by one. To do this I've set up 13 separate files to output the 13 episodes to. I will then probably burn the resulting video files using Nero.

    Using Nero, I can't figure a way of adding all the files en bloc for Nero to burn and it resulting in a perfectly formed DVD. Would using DVD shrink enable me to get round the space issue.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Regards.

    Thirteen episodes, what's the total running time?
    A standard blank is nominally two hours of DVD.
    DVD Shrink in Re-author mode will probably work, but shoving four to six hours running time onto one disk will mean the quality will suffer.

    Thx for the reply.

    The 13 episodes each run for roughly 45mins each. So I'm looking at 585 mins of video, nearly 10hrs of playtime. I neglected to do the sums. So it likes like I'll have to split over 3-4 discs. Oh well. Problem is now how to split the episodes over several discs, so that I have complete episodes and not episodes being cut part way through to carry on watching on the next disc.

    Again any help would be appreciated.

    Regards.

    You can still use DVD Shrink, but when I was faced with the same thing I only put three titles on the disk.
    You could double that with a DVD+R DL disk (as long as they are Verbatim and burned using ImgBurn).
    After that I figured my time was worth investing in a standalone that could play avi files.
