    You can put about 4464 GB on a DVD5 disk any more than thet and you would be asking for trouble. The reason a lot of people lower there amount to 4300 GB is to make sure they get a good burn every time. This really helps if your using cheap media. You can bump it up and give it a try. Then play your disk near the end of the movie and see how everything turn's out. You shouldnt have a problem with Maxell those are usually top of the line disk's. You could just experiment between 4300 and 4464 GB to see what works best for you.

    Hope this helps you,
