1. 8.5 GB DVDs are damn costly. I bought 3 from chennai recently for Rs. 300 a piece.

2. The actual size of a 4.7 DVD is 4.37.
ie 4.37 * 1024^3 bytes = 4.37 GB .
But the media producers just calculate with 1000 instead of 1024, for advertising reasons
ie 4.37* 1024^3/1000^3 = 4.7 GB

kuch movies are so high quality that 4.7 is not enough like the DVD 9 versions of movies are each about 7-8 GB.

Your writer needs to support DL for writing 8.5 GB DVDs. Almost all new writers supports that.

No probs still using 800 MB CDs.
