When I rip a DVD using handbrake it rips into a mpeg4 format. then when it's down i use toast to burn the dvd, but when i start to burn the dvd, toast tells me that i need 5.5 gb in order to burn the dvd. am i doing something wrong or should i use another program to rip it in a different format?

Sounds like you need to increase the compression of the MPEG4 file. The total size should not exceed about 4.3GB for a single layer disk.

Handbrake has all the options you need (assuming you are using the full Handbrake and not Instant Handbrake). If you use the 'target size' option you can just set it to 4GB and it'll calculate the bit rate automatically to make it fit.
