I use DVDFab Gold, it costs money but you can get a 30 day free trial...it automatically degradates quality to fit on 1 4.7GB DVD that or you can do a split DVD or... you can go buy some DL assuming your Burner can burn DL

Yeah, I use dvd shrink as well. It even lets you cut out the stuff you don't need like the subtitles for different languages so that you won't have as much to burn on the dvd and it will make it slightly better quality. I use it all the time, it's a great program, and free.

yup, dvdshrink ftw. if you get a "cyclic redudancy check" download Ripit4me and that will get you on the right track, just make sure you download current versions of fixvts and dvd decryptor, it has links in the program.
