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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
