File too large for DVD conversion

Been tryin to burn single play dvd's from files specified for such but can't seem to get it to fit on one. The file is set up for 2 single play dvd's but when I go to convert and burn it always ends up wanting to create 2 or 3 saying the files are too large for one. any thoughts?

Re: File too large for DVD conversion

I think you're talking about Roger Waters DVD. As you can see there are 2 folders there. You need to burn them separately. You'll need 2 DVDs.

Re: File too large for DVD conversion

I am, and I have the folders separate. I try to burn disc one files but when it sets up for conversion (using AVS converter) it says the files are too large for single play and wants to split them into two discs. I have dual layer but seems a waste to use those

Re: File too large for DVD conversion

Could be the software, seems to do this with most of the dvds, what should fit on one keeps splitting into 2 or 3. Can't get the menus to work either.... any ideas on better software?

Just burn each disc as data, using NERO, or Ones, etc.

no need for any conversions just burn each dvd folder's files to disc (assuming the 6 gb is for both folders)

Re: File too large for DVD conversion

Doesn't matter what software you use to burn; I'm presuming that the files are VOB - each folder should burn on a single disk.

No need to convert or play with the files.
