How can I compress/resize thousands of jpgs to fit exactly
into the space of a DVD automatically?

I have about 10,000 scanned notebook pages saved as jpgs. The average size per file is 1.5mb and the average resolution in 2000px x 3000px. Is there some way to automatically compress the images so that they will all fit exactly on a DVD? The images are largely handwritten notebook pages. I am on a mac and I have Photoshop and Toast but would be willing to buy software to do exactly this thing. This is an ongoing project and the number of files will increase at some point (Think dvd version 1, version 1.1 etc). Ideally I would be able to compress/resize the images from the masters and produce a disk image that I could then burn on to multiple DVDs. These DVDs will then be given to people for viewing on regular home computers. The files are organized in to folders based on notebook volume with an average of 100 files per folder. What is the best way to do this?
