    I searched for an answer to this but no one answered my exact question.

    Can I burn a dual layered DVD to a 4.7g DVD-R if I use IFOedit and get rid of what I don't want, or just burn one of the layers? I realize I can't burn both layers, way too big...so can I just choose one of those layers?_X_X_X_X_X_[small]Current Resistance[/small]

    You can't have searched that hard

    The answer is yes you can, and actually sometimes both layers will fit on one disc if you strip out all the extras. I think the film companies deliberately split it to two layers to make copying it more difficult, or they crank up the bitrate so that it doesn't fit on a single disc even if the film is only an hour and 40 minutes long or whatever.

    Typically you can get a 90 min. movie from a DVD-9 to a DVD-5 if you get rid of everything else. Extra's, subtitles, commentary, all audio except for 1 5.1 channel or 2.0. You can keep the menu but some animated menus can be half a gig. And yes they do crank up the bitrate.
