How do I shrink VOB files if DVD shrink is not recognizing the files?

I am using Dazzles VHS to DVD converter, but it is creating the files as VOB files and they are larger than a DVD. How do I shrink them? I have tried DVD Shrink but it says that it does not recognize the file and that it is an invalid DVD navigation structure. I have tried to convert them to avi files and MPEG files so that I could try shrinking them through DVD shrink that way but it did not work either.

Please help! I have ran out of ideas. Also detail to the answer is greatly appreciated as I am not that computer savy. Thanks!

    Feed the avi file to DVDFlick - http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvdflick/ It'll convert them to the right structure (as vob files) and shrink them if necessary. It's not fast, but it is free and open source.

    I think DVDshrink is a program for ripping dvd, not good for dvd burning, if you want to fit/burn large vob files into a normal DVD, you need to use a right software to rauthor DVD from your large vob files, you can try RZ DVD Creator, it can directly create video DVD from standard vob files without re-encode, it can fit/burn large videos into one video dvd, it can fit\burn multiple videos into one video DVD, it can auto fit the size, it can easy convert any formats videos to video DVD and burn to any DVD disc(DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, etc), such as burn large VOB files to dvd. You can yahoo or google search RZ DVD Creator and download it, easy to use, hope it can help you.

    If the files are under 8.5 GB, burn them to a dual layer disk.
