    I am trying to burn a 4.7GB data DVD and when I attempt to burn it I can't because it says the DVD can only hold 4,483MB of data instead of 4,700MB which it should be able to hold. So my question is HOW can i get Nero to burn that much data onto a DVD, I would like to get all of this onto 1 DVD so I don't have extra discs laying around. I am using the latest version of nero and I have a digital research dvd burner. My discs are Fuji 4.7GB DVD-R. Any help would be appreciated.

    4.5GB is all you can physically fit on a DVDR despite the 4.7GB rating. It's down to different ways of measuring capacity kinda like hard drives.

    4,483MB is quite a bit anyway. Im one fo the few who set theirs as high as 4,480MB, if its too high you will get disappointing results near the end...

    actually, its 4.37gigs.

    4.7gb as advertised = 4.7 billion bytes
    = 4483MB
    = 4.37gigs
