Obviously,your DVD rewriter has to be able to write to DVD dual layer.

You cannot even put 4.7 on a dvd you need to compreess to about 4.2 As for shrink yes but only providing it is and ordinary Movie in either Is0 image or Video _TS if it is it will doit automatically for you

Try compressing it with Winzip or Winrar, DVD Shrink is only for compressing video.
