    I've downloaded a few movie files and when I go to their properties they say they are roughly 300mb each. However, when I go to burn them in Nero, Nero recognises them as around 1.6GB. Anyone know how I can get this to not happen, as there is 25 files and this will take u loads of DVD's.

    The files I have haven't come from a DVD. They are media files whihc are downloaded (in .avi form). Like I said, the properties on tem say 350mb but in Nero they are said to be 1.6gb, taking up loads of DVD's (there are 25 files).

    Sounds like these are the other languages that the DVD comes in (ie. English, French, Spanish etc.) also, there will be trailers and the credits from the film - all of which make up the 1.6GB. You can basically strip all of these out leaving you with the English version of the film only. Oh yeah - there are also different formats - stereo, and 5.1, so unless you have a 5.1 system, don't bother using that piece.

    Have a look here for more info:

    Happy reading! ;)
    Cheers

    They are a TV show. They are about 40 mins long each and look like they have been recorded off TV, rather than taken from a DVD. There are no ads/credits etc.

    Just a guess: are you trying to burn as DVD Video? 40min recoded as mpeg2 would match 1.6gb. You need to burn them as data discs.

    If your dvd player can't handle them directly then you're going to be using a lot of discs and recoding will reduce the quality.

    I am trying to make them DVD Video. I've made a data DVD but my DVD player wont play them. It's a shame as I'd like to get them on to 4 or 5 discs.
