Help needed - VHS tapes to DVD

    I have some 95 min VHS tapes which I wish to put on to DVD.
    I have Pinnacle DC10 plus.
    I can capture the video but Pinnacle tells me I can only fit 60 min of best quality video to a DVD. This I don't understand as a 120 min movie can be stored on a DVD.
    I did transfer one 90 min tape to DVD using Pinnacle (Studio 8) but it was reduced to 58% quality and views much worse than the original tape.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I hate to tell you some things. One pinnacle sucks for encoding....I recommend using TMPEG for encoding, then use what you need for burning your DVD. There are so much information out there, it is hard to nail it down even for me.
    My current project is trying to encode a 120min movie with TMPEG, and put it on a DVD.
    I too have problems, but also keep this in mind. You really cannot fit a true 4.7 gig of video on a dvd. Sorry, that i couldn't help you more.
