    Hey everyone im new here and i've heard that there are some very intelligent ppl at this forum with lots of answers...so here go's.
    I have AVI files which are 800mB and when i want to burn them to DVD. using Nero they show as 4.9gB (or a bit bigger or smaller). now that causes a problem when i would like to burn 2 or 3 movies on 1 disc and still keep the quality...can i do anything 'bout this or do i have to sacrifice quality for quantity??(which i would never do anyways)

    Thanx very much

    Sounds like you are trying to transcode the AVIs into DVD format. About 90 mins of DVD format video will take up around 4 GB at reasonable quality. So, yes, you would have to trade quality for quantity. Basically, you can't get a quart (2 pints) into a pint pot.

    Unless you have a DVD player that can play divx AVIs. Then you can get 5 movies easily on one DVD-R.
