I have a wedding I record for 2 1/2 hours on Vhs and am trying to put on a DVD. I had tried to do this twice and it only recorded a portion. It told me the dic ran out of space. Is there a way to put it all on one dvd???

What I normally do with mine is oversize the picture (drag handles) a little to allow for that.


Yes but no one will want to watch it…


This is what DVD's can be expected to hold:



HQ = 1:06

SP = 1:37

LP = 2:22

ELP = 3:04


8.5 Gb:

HQ = 2:00

SP = 2:57

LP = 4:19

ELP = 5:35



You best bet would be to see if you can edit it to 2 hours then split it over 2 DVD's. Otherwise 3 will be needed to maintain quality.


If you have some RW discs, you can try short segments at the various qualities and decide how they look to you.
