For everything related to VCDs and such, I STRONGLY recommend reading over the information found at www.vcdhelp.com.

An SVCD will fit about 800 MB of MPEG 2 video when burned specifically as an SVCD.

It really depends on the length of the video you need to store on the VCD.  And the burning Software - Adaptec cannot do a SVCD but it can do a VCD.  Nero does both.

Also, the file source must be in a specific format, both in terms of frame rate and resolution.

All VCDs are burned in MPEG1 format.  All SVCDs are burned in MPEG2 format.  Regardless of original format (DivX, etc).

By the way, you don't make an SVCD or VCD merely by burning the files to the disk.  They must be burned in a specific format that the burning software must support.
