    Hi mindyjohn, The 4.7 gig listed on blank media is misleading. Actual capacity of blank media is 4.36 gig. So you have to shrink that 4.5 gig you have down to about 4.3 gig so it will fit. The manufacturers of blank media calculate free space a different way. Thats why they say 4.7 gig. Hope this helps.
