DVD's are supposed to be 4.7GBs... are you sure those DVDs you are using are new or blanks?

Kinda obvious that the disc isn't big enough for the game to be burned onto. If you'll look at the size comparison, it's a couple hundred KB too small.

These are dual layer disks, they're about 8GB

That being said, maybe different DVD-DLs have slightly different capacity? I don't think they should though...

or try making an ISO the same size as the disk, and copy the contents over?

The iso is too large, you would have to compress it but then i'm not even sure it would be enough plus it would degrade the quality.
