Best way to compress a bunch of avi files

I have a bunch of avi video files that are eating up a massive amount of my hard drive. What is the easiest/best way to compress them with the least amount of video quality loss?

Thanks.

Back them up on DVDs?

I say that because I just burned 50+ DVDs over the weekend with system backups that I had on hard drives. It freed up a lot of space!

I was considering that but I do like being able to pull one up easily without digging around for it. I may end up just doing that.

How big are they? What format are they encoded in now?

Put them on an external hard drive. Easy access, no compression needed, no loss of quality.
