Default Help needed please!

hello guys,
can you please help me with a problem that is giving me a REAL headache ?
i live in the uk,& have just joined BLOCKBUSTER to download movies.
now nearly all the movies are in AVI or DIVX,with some posted just as LOW QUALITY.
unfortunately for me my DVD PLAYER/RECORDER does not support these formats.
over here our system is PAL based not NTSC as in north america.
my burner is CYBERLINK POWER TO GO-6.
when i download the films,even though the total size is under 4.7 gb which is the maximum capacity for burning to dvd,my burner shows they are way off the scale to fit onto disc ???
i have tried saving them to various folders to no effect?
i have a conversion program called actusoft which is good for smaller files to burn which i have done ok.
with this program i converted a 700mb movie to PAL to burn to dvd,but it increased to size 5,2 GB??
im sure the download size is a lot bigger than stated??
i have tried dvd shrink which does not even recognise the films ???
i really am at a loss as to what to do next?
can any of you kind folk help me out please?

kind regards
