    None, this file is too large, a 4.7gb dvdr will only actually hold about 4.3. If it is a dvd movie you can compress it with dvd shrink or DVD2ONE

    If you are trying to burn it for data archive purposes, I would recommend trying to compress with programs like WinRAR or WinZip.

    If it is a movie, as brocher stated DVD Shrink will help you compress it so it can be burned to a single sided 4.7GB DVD

    Or, try finding the right media that will allow overburning without too much trouble and have to have the luck that you have a burner that allows overburning.

    Nero I think has overburn options now.
