¿why Toast Limit The Recording To 4,36Gb?

Question

Hello,

 

I'm trying to burn a DVD of 4.7 GB but Toast only lets me burn up to 4.36 GB, ¿do you know why?

 

Regards

 

 

(Toast Titanium 10 - Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.5)

A 4.7 GB disc is actually 4.38 GB in size. It has to do with how bits and bytes are added up to gigabytes. The marketers of discs think there is are 1,000 kilobytes to a megabyte when there are actually 1024. You'll see the same thing in how the sizes of hard drives are marketed.
