How to reduce a DVD when there is not enough space

Depending on the DVD you use, it is possible to save a little more than 4.5 gigabytes of data on the disc. This, however, may not have enough space for all the files you want to store on the DVD. In order to increase the amount of available disk space it is possible to compress the data down to a closed format. This allows you to upload additional information to the DVD. Things You’ll Need
