    You can make miniDVDs using CD-Rs, but I have not seen any players that support them personally. DVD-Rs are getting so cheap now it's probably not worth your trouble of splitting the DVD into so many discs:

    You can also convert DVD movies to either SVCD, VCD, or DivX formats. More information and utilities for this can be found at www.digital-digest.com.

    Conversion to DivX maintains high quality and often compresses a movie to a single CD-R, however these movies cannot be played in standalone DVD players.

    Conversion to SVCD is becoming more popular lately. It creates a set of CD's, often 2 or 3, that use the same video compression methos as a DVD, and can be played in standalone DVD players.
