    u cant write more than 4.3 GB on a DVD... coz,

    in manufacturing standards of hardisk 1 GB = 1000 MB.
    So, when multiplied 4.3 GB * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 = 4617089843.2 bytes or 4.7*10^9 bytes (approx).

    OK now divide (4.7 *10^9)/1024*1024*1024 = 4.3..

    So you get 4.3 GB on the DVD or 4.7 GB of data as said my manufactures.

    Refer to http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?p=320282#post320282

    But donno wats d prob wid cd...:(

    The 800 Mb Cd's which I've used usually have 100 MB Overburn so if you enable Disk Overburn though it'll show 700 MB but you should be able to burn 800 MB.

    I have read in certain forums that dvd overburning is possible upto 4.5 GB (mostly with Verbatim brand DVD+R) but I have been unable to do so with MoserBaer DVD-R . I asked if anyone in this forum knows the procedure but it seems no member has any actual experience of overburning DVDs :(

    Well you can use something like DVD Shrink to bring down the size of DVD to 4.3 GB and then burn it to DVD.
    It's a freeware available here: http://www.dvdshrink.org/what.html

    Do lemme know if this helps :)

    ^^^ True but if we can't increase the space maybe we can compress the data ? Has nyone done tried using something like DVD Shrink and then burn the DVD? I can't test it bcz I don't have a DVD Writer but it does shrinks the DVD thats confirmed ..

    Hmm.. Verbatim is obviously a *very* good brand, but you can also try MoserBaer. Do tell us how it goes! (I've never tried overburning a DVD :p )

    Yeah! Its available in Nehru Place commonly.. Dunno about your place! Anyway, a DVD+R is better than DVD-R.

    Actually i never inquired about the price, but there should not be much diff. DVD+R is a only a little more expensive than DVD-R.

    ^^^ Nopes DVD+R is about double the price of DVD-R here in B'lore. I'll be in Delhi next week so might buy it from NP if it's ny cheaper.

    I never went for it cuz generally i buy disks from near my place only (Not nehru place) and my local guy does not have DVD+R. Anyway, the price difference also matters cuz i burn in bulk! Anyway, i dont think there may be too much a difference between the price of a DVD-R and DVD+R.
