    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

    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.

    You will get those at Palika Bazar or Nehru Place

    Getiing a bit off topic here but desertwind can u tell me how much u got 800 mb cd's for? I searched the whole lamington road in mumbai but didn't find them. I got them at one place near my house for Rs. 20 each but those were the last 3 he had in stock. They have been too difficult to find for me. And can you tell me which company please.
