I just got my dvd-writer and started burning everything and then it was the movies next! But when I put in couple dvd's into my dvd rom, they were all like 4.8gb, 4.78gb right over my dvd-r media limit...Is there anyway I can still burn these movies?

Like can I overburn ? How/with what program? I have no clue on how to overburn, explain :)  or is there a way to lower their video/audio quality a tad bit so they'll be a less in size for me to burn them....Some help would really be greatly appreciated

I believe DVD X-Copy by 321 Studios will let you select just the info. you want to burn. So, you could skip all the extras (like featurettes, director's commentary...) and maybe that would get it down size for you.

Sorry, those DVDs aren't quite "right over your dvd-r media limit". Your DVD-R disc is only about 4.3 gigs. DL a program called DVD Shrink and it will transcode the movie to fit on one disc.
