In video, size means much less that time. 2 hours is about all you'll get on a standard DVD. I suggest you either go to a DL if you can with your equipment, or, split the file in two using Videowave then, turn those into an image file and burn each to disc.

Have you tried going into the MyDVD 'project settings' and uncheck 'fit to disc'. Then select EP. This setting will give you 3 hours and 1 minute which still would not fit your movie. Looks like the only option is what Paul suggested. Try a dual layer disc.

The other alternative if you don't object to losing quality is to output the file to hard drive as a .iso image - open that with Disc Copy and it will shrink to fit.

 

You WILL lose quality however

Your next post might be "Why; commercial disc can have more than that on a disc?" They use a different process to press the information onto the disc.

 

There are some formats like DivX that will allow long, good quality videos on a disc but you need a special player to play them. V9 will output to a DivX file.

 

Please, unless you have a visual handicap, turn off the caps.
