    Can anyone recommend free zip software so I can save my movie data to disk? It takes up too much space on my PC

    1)WinRar
    2)winzip
    3)7zip

    lastly. if you just want back them up to cd/dvd i wouldn't suggest zipping it. cause it will read all the file first to unzip.
    anyway the bits you save are too little, like 1%.
    why ? cause it already compressed, divx/xvid is the compressor

    not all avis are compressed, and some mpeg files can be compressed slightly, but definately not worth the effort, unless you have a file slightly over 700 megs you want to fit on a cd.
