    You need to adjust the bitrate to make the content fit on a DVD. Vegas Pro Tools > Burn Disc does not give you a chance to change the bitrate, so you need to use the appropriate DVD Architect compliant templates in File > Render as. You can change the bitrate as needed in Customize Template.

    Use a bitrate calculator. A "trivial formula" is: Total bitrate = 600 / minutes. Subtract your audio bitrate (.2Mb/s for typical AC3), and you have your average video bitrate number. http://www.johncline.com/bitcalc110.zip

    The tutorial below shows what you need.

    And use only Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim (not the Life series) DVD blanks. May be a bit more expensive but generally considered to be the most reliable discs.
    Get a couple of rewritable DVD blanks while you practise.

    There's all that stuff that vkmast said which is right. BUT make sure you are rendering the video to a standard definition format. Use the DVD Architect mpeg2 template for your region. So long as the video isn't about 2hrs long you should be able to get it to fit on a DVD.

    Kenya is PAL

    Choose the PAL DVD Architect video stream (widescreen or not), then render the audio stream separately as an AC3 stream. Give both files the same name (before the .ac3 and .mpg extension) and DVD Architect will automatically pick up one when you specify the other.

    Then adjust the PAL DVD Architect template bit rate until you get something that fits (use the calculator mentioned above to get a rough idea)

    Tim, if you change the bitrate in DVD Architect instead of Vegas Pro/Movie Studio, doesn't the DVD Architect Fit to Disc recompress again?

    Yes it does. Sorry I was not at all clear - I meant change the bitrate in Vegas in the DVDA Template.

    Apologies for misleading.
