Hi monimala, welcome to CMX. Any files you download using BitTorrent (open source Linux distributions, etc) will be downloaded to your computer. Most operating systems will have some sort of inbuilt functionality to burn to a disk. Whether you can fit multiple files on a disk depends on the type of disk (ie. a CD normally holds 700MB while a DVD I think is 4.7GB), and the size of the files. If you are using Windows, the file size can be found in Windows Explorer to the far right of the file name :)

I might also add that in order to be able to play back what you burn to CD or DVD on a regular DVD player must be in the proper format...

Using a program like Nero, Roxio, or if you're running Windows 7, Windows DVD Maker, will be able to produce a DVD in a standard DVD format, just dragging and dropping the videos onto the disc (such as Windows Explorer) will make a Data DVD which only a few DVD players will accept.

If you're looking to burn more than 1 movie per disc you might use a DVD over a CD, most movies (in standard definition) are at the very least 500 MB and can be as large a 2 GB, meaning there's no way you can get more than one movie to a disc.

If you're still around and would like to revisit this, what is your objective? to watch on TV? or your computer? Backup?
