You can't really do what you suggest. ASF and MPEG are completely different formats. The only way to shrink the size of a MPEG file is to lower the bit rate. If you converted a 200 MB ASF file to a 200 MB MPEG file, the final MPEG file would probably be unwatchable due to the low bit rate. has guides on converting video between formats which might help you.
