Unhappy file too large

I have tried two comercial programs. Powerdirector and Ulead DVD. Both programs tell me that my file is too large, I even recompressed file down to 800mb. I am trying to put it on a dvd. I can do it all manually with programs from the internet, but sometimes these dvds won't work and all players. Is there some movie lenght limitation in comercial programs?

(Although you don't say, I'm assuming that your "file" is a DivX [or otherwise]-compressed .AVI)

Note: If either Powerdirector and Ulead DVD allow you to save a full DVD "package" (.IFOs, .BUPs, .VOBs) to your hard drive, despite the "too large" message, you can skip Step 1).

One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) Use "TMPGEnc" to convert the .AVI (DivX-compressed or otherwise) to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" v. (a different program than "TMPGEnc) to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)

**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress

If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")

Let us know of your success ;>}
