Unhappy need help with dvd too big to burn

i have been burning alot of dvds lately, but this one says i need to insert a disc with at least 7.80gb of free space. Even when i just try to copy the main movie without the trailers and other features, it still says the same thing. can anyone tell me why this is happening.

Welcome to the Digital Digest Video forum fanof8bud!

Perhaps you inadvertently changed the "Target DVD Size" in the "Preferences" settings.

It should be set at "DVD-5 (4.7GB)".
