Burning a VIDEO_TS that is 4.3GB says "compressing"

Question

I have used so many versions of Roxio that I thought they would finally get the bugs out of 2010. It's a swiss army knife with all the gadgets open at once. After it went through a long process of compressing a 4.3GB VIDEO_TS folder to "fit" on a 4.7GB disc you can throw it in the trash. When inserted it's not recognized as even having a disc in the drive. When I go back to using CloneDVD2 you have to go into task manager (VISTA Ultimate) and stop all the processes that Roxio burn automatically loads before it will even let you use another program that works.

 

Q: WHY WOULD IT "COMPRESS" A 4.3GB VIDEO TO FIT ON A 4.7GB DVD+R ?

Forget 'size' completely with video DVDs and think 'time' instead

 

A good quality DVD is one hour video - the program will 'shrink to fit'

 

Also, bear in mind that a '4.7 GB' disc is 4,700,000,000 bytes (which is not the same as 4.7 GB in terms of windows - it's actually closer to 4.3 GB) and you also will have overheads for lead-in and lead-out on the disc

I don't think it actually compresses it. It is a false UI bug. I tested a DVD and no issues with playback either on computer or on a standalone player.
