What is the ratio of time to MB/s (or KB/s)

E.G. How much space on a CD/DVD for a 2 hour film. Can anyone help please?

If you are using Nero if you click on your way to Trans-coding to DVD format it gives you the option to fit on disk, if you choose this option it will automatically choose its own bitrates’.

Sorry I forgot to add even if your movie is say three hours in length. Just click on fit to disk, and it will fit it to the two hour disk.

I`ll use Nero when I understand what I`m doing, but in this instance all I want is a ball park figure. Thanks for the quick answer.

As you`ll have gathered by now I`m new to this type of transfer, but I think I understand from what you`ve said that a, say, 3 hour film won`t fit on a CD but that I can get it, and possibly another one, to fit on a DVD.

You can put a couple of say 3 hour films onto one DVD, but the more you put on the poorer the quality becomes. For example I have all the four Alien Films on one DVD, but saying that the picture quality is poor. But I do have the first three on VHS Video so I intend to copy them to DVD using my DVD recorder hooked up to my Video recorder/player, and the fourth one is on Sky at the moment so I'll get it there.

Thanks for your input. I`ve had a mate of mine here who thinks this forum is a little overstated and now he`s gone home to have a "really good look" at it.
I`ve learned a lot from what you`ve said. Thank you.
