    I am not sure what problem you are facing. If you have a DVD writer and a blank DVD, you can easily burn them using Nero or some other DVD writing software. Do you want to make VOB file out of your movies? Is that your question?

    The problem is that I use Roxio. There, the moment I select one movie(of 2hrs say), it shows that it requires some 4 GB or so. That doesn't leave me with space for other movies.

    well DVD quality doesnt permit u 2 record more than 2hours on a single disc...u could get it upto 240min/4hours at a low quality...im not so sure abt that though...so yea...if u wanna make a DVD movie disc which u can play on dvd players, then u r stuck at 2hours...but if u wanna make a disc with just the videos, then just make a data disc and put the videos on it....

    yes. like theraven said remove all soundtracks except the one u want to keep, all the other features like trailer, making etc. thus u can fit 2 or 3 english movies. But to write 5 or above u need double layered disk (9GB+)

    But y bother abt that? make the DVDs to single CD DivX movies. In that way u can store atleast 6 to 7 movies on a single layered DVD disk without lossing much quality
