Default file size when converting mpeg to DVD

Could someone explain to me why the file size of mpeg file increases when I try to convert it to dvd format and burn it to dvd disc. I use Ulead Video Studio 6. When I insert mpeg2 file into the program and use option "create iso image to hard disc" the size bar shows over 6 Gb although the original size of mpeg file is 2.5 Gb. I was expecting that the sizes would be equal. What is the reason?

"I was expecting that the sizes would be equal. What is the reason?"

Probably because the bitrate set in Ulead Video Studio 6 was very high. Try and determine the bitrate, and resolution of the "Original" mpeg file. Download GSpot in order to check.

It could be the resolution. Nero 6 always tries to calculate the resolution to iiix576. So if your mpeg file got 480x480 (SVCD) Nero makes it to 480x576! That increase the file size.
