    After going thru all the posts on the best dvd writer i finally bought a sony 810A dvd writer .
    my problem is my blank dvds are of moserbaer with a capacity of 4.7 gb, the writer recognises this disc as 4,489 mb.
    i have installed the nero 6 provided on my win 98 se.
    why is there such a discrepany between the disc capacity and that shown by nero

    actualy storeage media manufacturers take
    1 GB = 1000 MB, 1 MB = 1000 KB, 1 KB = 1000 bytes

    but windows take
    1 GB = 1024 MB, 1MB=1024KB, 1KB=1024 bytes

    u will notice some less space in ur hard disk drive too
    in short nothing is wrong with ur writer or software
