Default Compiling DVD, but getting TOO big!

Hey everybody,

So I'm trying to burn a simple Video DVD with a menu and some 4 or 5 episodes of a TV series I like in high sound and video quality with subtitles.
All of the episodes are AVI (~350MB) and have MP3 sound. So here is how it went:

1 - I used VirtualDubModto extract an uncompressed WAV file (~600MB) at 48KHz, 16-Bit, High Quality, Stereo;

2 - I used TMPEG Encoder to convert the AVI file to MPEG-2, creating a NTSC (~24FPS), in which I set the Higest quality mode for Motion search precision and the 2-pass VBR option for Rate control mode (in the MPEG setting window). For all of the episodes, my video resolution was 720x480, my average video bitrate was 4000kbits/sec, and my audio bitare was 384kbits/sec. MPG files formed were around 1,6GB;

3 - I used DVD Lab Pro for DVD authoring, and after I imported the MPG file, I demuxed it to get an MPV and an MPA files, so I compiled a DVD with the MPV + WAV file extracted previously. I inserted subtitles and created a simple menu (5MB);

In the end I burned a RW and tested it and it was great, the quality was exactly what I wanted. The only problem is that files size were big and I couldn't put more than 2 episodes inside a DVD. Any ideas?

I'm a newb, so I'm sorry about my post, in case I did anything wrong.

If you have the encoding all done and it's just bigger than DVD5 you can reencode with DVD Rebuilder to fit it on a DVD5. In future it may be simpler to try an encoder that will fit the work to a DVD5 like DVD Flick, FAVC etc..
