    I'm trying to burn a couple of video clips I captured from my mini dv to 2 4.7gb DVD discs. I made sure to split the massive 9.08gb into two clips (4.46gb and 4.62gb) so they can fit in the DVD discs. But they won't burn. It says "Untitled DVD is too large to fit on the disc. Remove some files and try again." I'm using a 2.33ghz MBP, and Memorex DVD+R DVDs and I don't understand why it won't fit.

    Alot of the time, the DVDs end up having a real life capacity closer to 4.4GB. I can't explain why. Maybe someone else can. You're probably going to have to split that file into 3 pieces over 3 DVDs.
