Burning dvds, make the file smaller?

Twice in the last month or so, when I go to burn a disk, it says that there is not enough space. What can I do to resolve the program? Any free worthwhile programs out there ? Or should I just buy double layer dvd's ? And is so anyone know any good deals on then ?

What are you trying to burn? File type wise

I just use convertxtodvd, always makes it fit (although sometimes compromising quality)
#2
Trying to burn a movie using dvd videosoft, I have never had this problem before though.

Does this happen when you copy disc to hard drive first? (If so you don't have enough space on hard drive)

If this is burning the contents to the disc. If the file size is bigger then the disc size you have to shrink it, or convert it into another format.

Try using a software called Shrink it's free and still the best out there.

Here is another Shrink software you can try for 7 days

Most DVD-Rs are 4.7GB single layed discs, while most original DVDs are dual layer 9.4GB.

Athough the film companies rarely use up all this space, once menus, deleted scenes, making ofs, foreign subs etc are included most DVD's will struggle to fit onto a single layer without being compressed.

I use DVD Shrink (as suggested above by Ascot above). You can manage the compression so that the main movie is less compressed than less important things like deleted scenes or reauthor so you only end up with the main movie. It copes with most discs although once in a while it will struggle to open a disc (this is very rare though).

DVDShrink + Anydvd together will open any disk without fail though.
