I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
