Can't fit 4.7gb on DVD-R using OEM Nero 6

Hi,

I'm making data disks with Nero 6 OEM edition. It seems like I can
only fit 4.5gb of data on the disk, what's happening with the other
200mb's? Is this normal? Is there any setting I can adjust so I can
fit more on one DVD-R disk?

My DVD burner is the NEC-2500A and my pc has XP Pro.

Thanks.

-MH

Like hard drive, DVD blanks are measured using 1 GB = 1000 MB and 1 MB
= 1000 KB.

4.5 GB is the correct amount that's useable unless you try to
overburn.

You can actually only fit 4.38GB on a disks. 4.7GB capacity is based on the
simpler 1000 instead of the actual 1024 number, just like hd manufacturers
now use....
