    How long you can record on them at SP (normal) setting. It's more for use on
    the home consumer recorders, rather than computer DVD writers. The disks i
    have (Verbatim) list 5.1Mbps as the average recording compression, so your
    time will vary according to the quality that you record at. I usually record
    at 6Mbps, and can fit a rugby match onto a single disk - usually comes in
    about 95mins or so.

    The higher the compression, the less you can record. For example EP will let
    you record 240 mins on a disk, but only at 2.5Mbps.
