    OK so i need to compress 3gigs of video files, files are 350MB and there are 9 of them, and then burn to as few discs as possible, 700MB disks.

    anybody know the best compressor to do this?

    What format are they now? Since they're 350MB a piece I'm guessing DivX/XviD, some 40min series. They are already highly compressed and you won't get them much smaller. Smaller will result in quality loss.

    Why don't you just burn them on a DVD?

    If you have a DVD burner just buy some disks, it's your best option.

    Buy cheap spindles online, 20-25 eurocents per DVD.
