I am trying to copy family videos from VHS to DVD. Previously I have used
MovieMaker2 and CyberLink Disc Wizard to successfully burn much smaller DVDs.


Using an external VCR I copied the video (120 minutes...originally taped in
SP mode) to a miniDV tape on my Canon ZR80 (because the miniDV tapes only
hold 90 minutes I used 2 tapes). Next I imported the video into MovieMaker2
on my home computer (WindowsXP SP2). In MM2 I did minor editing (added one
title, one transition, and re-split the different parts of the video) to the
2 hour video and then saved it as a DV-AVI file (24.4 GB).

Currently, to burn the DVD I can either use, CyberLink Disc Wizard or
Sonic's My DVD, and have Sony DVD+Rs (120min/4.7 GBG). Using this set up is
there any way to get the entire video onto one DVD+R? If not, are there
other options for getting this video onto one DVD?

Some video capture/edit programs will have options to fit the video onto
the DVD--it compresses it more with a reduction in quality that may or
may not be noticeable. For example, when I use Roxio EasyMediaCreator 7
if the file is too large it offers to shrink the file to fit before burning.
