Limitation: Zen V Plus Video Size Increased Tremendously After Convert

Problem: This happens to me and will also happen to anyone using Zen V Plus. I usually transfer .avi and .mpeg videos. Their size is about 140x130, more or less,and are 14 Mbs, more or less. When I convert them with the video converter, to DIB, (or this is what it says) it's 90 mbs. How is this possible? Is there anyway to make them smaller?

Limitation: I searched for solutions and answers and this is what I found. No solution for this issue. The Zen V Plus doesn't support any video decompression codecs, so when you convert a video (say an AVI) to the Zen V Plus it actually converts the video to a DIB data stream AVI file. DIB stands for "Device Independent Bitmap". Since there is no compression being used on the DIB images in the video stream, a 14mpg divx AVI file at 320x240 can end up being a 92mb 140x130 DIB Avi file when its converted. It can't handle compressed video so the Creative video converter converts to the AVI format with no video compression. Well Zen V Plus is meant for viewing small video clips I guess, so if you want to watch movies, got to use Zen Vision.
