Okay, I just got a new computer with a DVD burner. I downloaded a couple of movies and am trying to burn them onto blank DVD's. The ones I bought are 120 minutes. The mvies are longer than that time frame. Do they get compressed or something to fit on the DVD's or do I look for blank DVD's that are longer in length. I know this sounds like a stupid question, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Thanks for any help. :)

120 minutes movie should fit regular DVD. What burning program are you using?

I hjave both Roxio - which I couldn't figure out and I also tried with Windows Media Player. One of the movies is 2 hours and 19 minutes so 120 won't do unless I can compact it or maybe I'm just not understanding.
Thanks. :)

Yeah, over 2 hours movie won't fit.
You need to split it into two parts. What format is it? .avi?

Howdy:

What are the movies and where did you download them from?

Yep, they're avi. The movies are old and I'm embarrassed to tell you the names - just suffice to say that one has Cary Grant in it. I use Ares.

That would be against board rules (downloading copyrighted material).
