I think it's because Divx is a format for compressing video. The compression on dvd standard is not so good.

When you have your 5gb file, try using something like DVDshrink, this may get it down to a size that will fit on a DVD.

I'm no expert mind.

yeah but the .divX file is 1Gb so why would it make such a drastic change its confuddleing!

Yes divx is a well known compression format for video,normally a 700mb avi when converted to a dvd format uncompresses to around 2.5 gb,why nero makes it into a 5gb file i do not know?
What are you using just nerovision to reencode the file an burn it to dvd?
Tasselhoff solution to use dvd shrink will work as the program shrinks the file to fit on the dvd but this isnt ideal in your case,you are using a compressed file,uncompressing it to a dvd format then compressing it again using dvd shrink,loss of quality using all those processes.
Suggest you try one of the trial versions of vso divx to dvd or maybe winavi 7.1 and see what size the file outputs at using those programs.
Nero is a good suite but the reencoding side isnt always reliable and it takes forever to reencode.
Hope this helps you some what

my p4 2.4 with 1gb ddr takes approx 30mins to encode an divx 700mb file to dvd format,if your takes longer,its the file size or your pc spec

good luck
