You need dual layer - make sure your DVD writer can handle them. If it can't new DVD writers aren't expensive. I always use Verbatim Dual layer discs

dvd shrinkYou cant unless you get a dual layer which is a bit dearer. If this is for video you could compress with dvd shrink which is free with little or no noticeable loss in quality

Ok the film on tape are you using a combi Tape/dvd recorder or just tape to dvd recorder and not to PC first? If so shrink cant help. You would need to use dual layer discs or choose a lower quality on the dvd recorder settings. Or put it on a couple of standard dvd RW's then you can use the pc and combine to one dvd using shrink. Shrink would make a better job of compressing than your recorder as it will only compress by the amount neede as opposed to most recorders which have afixed compression ( some do have a variable) even if you were a few minutes over the standard 2hours let us know the method and we'll see what can be done
