You can usually fit about 70 minutes of video on a standard DVD and about 140 minutes on a dual layer disc -- although the program can squeeze your video and reduce quality to fit a bit more on if you need to.
How much video are you trying to squeeze onto a disc?
There could be a number of other problems at work here, including a lack of defragmented hard drive space, source video that doesn't match the project settings, a bad burner driver, etc. So it's hard to even speculate what's up without a lot more information.

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below

Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information... and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline, which indicates a mismatch between video and project
