Toast is writing to essentially the full capacity of the DVD.

The actual capacity of a 4.7 GB disc is 4.4 GB. The reason for the difference is that a kilobyte in computer terms is 1024 bytes; but the 4.7 GB number was calculated on a kilbyte equalling 1000 bytes. It is the same reason an 80 GB hard drive doesn't hold nearly that much. The math used for calculating the size for marketing purposes is different from the math used by a computer.
