File Size Bigger Than Original

It's likely that the file you have is a compressed file such as an divx or xvid or mp4. When you make a DVD, in order to make it DVD compliant, it converts it to an mpeg format which is not condensed and takes up more space.

Are you trying to fit a number of episodes on 1 dvd?

In general, if you convert videos (ie avi,divx etc.) to DVD compliant you'll get about 2 hours on 1 DVD.

If you burn the episodes as data and don't convert then obviously you can fit more on a DVD.

But it may or may not play on your DVD player.

and input your player brand/name and it will tell you what it should play for formats...
