Converting an IPV6 address to ipV4 address is easy. You can write IPV4 address in IPV6 format by two ways. First one is very easy; just use an online converter like this http://www.subnetonline.com/pages/subnet-calculators/ipv4-to-ipv6-converter.php and http://ipv6.ztsoftware.net
The second one is, you may learn and do it manually after performing some steps on a sheet. Manual process:  http://routing-bits.com/2009/03/19/converting-ipv4-to-ipv6/

The deployment of the newer version of the protocol will not happen all at once because of the significance of the Internet Protocol and the impact of the changes made in IPv6. Instead, a transition or conversion from IPv4 to IPv6 is necessary which requires careful planning. The migration from IPv4 to IPv6 was predicted to take many years.

IPv6 is backward compatible with IPv4, provided that special techniques are used. For example, to enable communication between "islands" of IPv6 devices connected by IPv4 networks, tunneling may be employed. To support IPv4/IPv6 compatibility, a scheme was developed to allow IPv4 addresses to be embedded within the IPv6 address structure. This method takes regular IPv4 addresses and puts them in a special IPv6 format so they are recognized as being IPv4 addresses by certain IPv6 devices.
