    I don't know about converting video files, but I can imagine some confusion arising from your wording...
    When you say I now have, do you mean you have already converted them to mpg, or that they are still avi files?

    downloaded them as avis. the problem is that my burning software sees the files length wise. being return of the king, the 3 parts would require 3 dvd! (according to my burning program). im thinking that if i encode them to mpeg, the burning software will see it as file size, not lengthwise.

    Can't you just compile a data disc? In Nero, I think you just need to start a data disc project and add the files to it.

    Pretty sure that's what you do.

    k, firstly it is absolutely impossible to convert avi to mpeg w/out loss of qual, and no increase in size.

    now, it is poss to get a pretty good quality for 1 film, though it requires more than just nero to do it.

    get a program called tmpegenc and use that to encode. use a dvd-template, and set the quality (and hence size) to 4400/3, then repeat for each file, and voila
