How can I get the full 4.7 GB of data on a disc?
The total usable disc space available on 4.7GB DVD-R/RW media is approximately 4.37
Gigabytes. The apparent discrepancy is because DVD formats use one billion bytes
(1000 x 1000 x 1000) to represent a gigabyte, whereas traditional data storage
calculations use a 1024 x 1024 x 1024 value. This amounts to an apparent 7% difference
in the total number of bytes when DVD capacities are compared with the traditional
calculation; in other words, 4.37 GB = 4.7 billion bytes.
