    Well if the Movies are on DVD and they Play on a DVD Player then they had to be encoded at some point to Mpeg unless the Original Files were allready in Mpeg format..If you look at the Directories on the DVD and see a Video_TS folder with Vob and IFO and BUP files in it then it is a Regualr DVD in Mpeg format..Some DVD Players will Play Mpeg-4/DivX files But I do not believe they will play on DVD just on CD-R, and the DVD Player has to specificly support the Mpeg-4 Format which not many do...
    So what do you want to know??? How to Put Movies on a DVD-R or how to put 3 Movies on a DVD-R???

    Well you can"t put 3 movies on a DVD-R this way..All of the files would have to be Formated together and outputted to One DVD Folder...You never said how you made these Folders and how you shrunk them so it is Hard for me to give you any instructions...Usually you would need to rip all of the movies seperately then encode them with a Mpeg encoder then author them to DVD together with a DVD authoring Program.....

    Well if you think they are too hard especially DVD-Lab , Then I think you should Give up right now...DVD-Lab is As easy as they get while still being Functional...The Only one I know that is even easier than DVD-Lab But I don"t like Because it has Crappy Menu options is "Tmpgenc DVD author", you can find it at h**p://www.tmpgenc.net/ ...it is a 30 day fully working Demo ...well good Luck
