    Quality is in the eye of the beholder, but you cannot put three full length movies on a 4.7 GB DVD and have full resolution and high quality and multiple multi-channel audio tracks. It cannot be done. Period.

    On a DVD9 reasonable quality can be achieved if the movies are around the 90 minute mark each. Rip the movies, author a new disc that will be oversized, then use something like DVD Rebuilder to re-encode them for DVD9 using HCEnc, then burn with Imgburn. But they will not be original quality.

    Most standard length movies require 5 - 6 GB for full quality, with longer movies needing over 7 GB. It can be done with less, and a 90 minute movie can look good on a single layer disc, but put 2 movies in the space and the quality is noticeably lower.

    It continually baffles me how many people want to put unrealistic amounts of material on a DVD-R. What is up with that? Whats the point, really, of having the five "Saw"movies on one DVD unless you're a cheap-ass Chinese pirate distributor looking for a marketing gimmick? Is it so inconvenient to have a separate disc for each movie? I often wonder if the people who ask these questions are too young to remember VHS: compared to tape, a single movie on a single DVD takes up one twelfth the space and weight. I have entire runs of old TV dramas like "Mission: Impossible" stored 3 episodes to a DVD-R: all 170+ hours of it fit in less space than three VHS T-120s. I'm delighted with that, so I don't try to push the envelope any further. Its also worth noting, the more data you cram onto one disc, the greater your risk of a minor scratch or surface making the disc unplayable.

    If these are downloaded AVIs, are you wanting to keep the same quality that already exists in the AVI? You can't add quality where it doesn't exist, so if you're expecting to get full DVD quality and full 5:1 sound from a DVD created from a few downloaded AVIs... well, it's not going to happen, as guns1inger and orsetto have already said. But you can try to minimize the quality loss you'll get from the original AVIs when you reencode.
