Hello,

 

A DVD will hold about 4,707,320,000 bytes which some people call 4.7 Gigabytes. A sort of 'decimal' Gigabyte? It's popular among drive manufacturers, bit it's not correct.

 

Since a KB is actually 1024 bytes, a MB is 1,048,576, and a GB is 1,073,741,824 bytes, that makes the capacity of a DVD actually equal to 4.3 'real' Gigabytes.

 

I hope that helps clear up the confusion. Your software may be rejecting your attempts to put 4.7 'real' GB onto a disc.
