Converting files

Can someone please help

I have been trying to copy downloaded files on to dvd-r and am having problems converting the files. I am using TMPGEnc DVD Author to do this, is there a ‘best’ file type for dvd? When I have converted any files before (avi - mpeg) it increased the file length and file size. can anyone also give me an idea of the best software to use Thanks
