I have been trying to burn a DVD in i DVD and everytime it gets as far as encoding audio it stalls and does no more encoding.
I am trying to write to a DVD+R. My movie size is 7.51 gb. Is the reason for the stalling that the DVD is not large enough
to handle the size of the movie I am trying to burn?

Welcome to Bleeping Computer kentstm! :thumbsup:
You posted your problem in a wrong forum, this is Introductions forum, where you introduce yourself to other members. There are many other forums where you can post different problems, so this topic will probably be moved.

Yes, the problem is that one DVD has capacity of 4,7 GB and the movie is 7,51 GB, so it will not fit.
There is a dual layer DVD which has the capacity of 8 GB, so if your DVD/RW can write dual layer DVDs you can try to burn the movie to dual layer DVD.
