While burning dvd's at 4x, would there be a relationship between megs and real minutes on a disc(DVD-R/RW?

Depends on what the type of dvd's you are using
Are they standard 4.7 gig or Dual layer 8 gig?
You will only get at max the total minutes allowed by the size.
Burning at any speed will usually not make a difference in the amount of data or minutes.

I am using a standard single layer 4.7 DVD-R. I am attempting to burn a VCR converted from a standalone VCR/DVD machine using Nero 7 Ultra but the VCR was originally on two tapes, which amount to about 4 hours in total time and I would like to put them on two discs but I would like to make an even split in the middle.

The question is how large is the file you are trying to convert to the dvd disc? Being 2 tapes and if you have converted the files then what are they converted as and how big are the files
