    Yea .. It can be confusing knowing which numbers are being used.

    A 4.3gb file just might fit in a 4.7gb DVD
    My Sonic Record Now software will tell me if it won't fit - before it burns it.

    Otherwise ... I might have to compress (zip) it .. and hope.

    EDIT .. The operating system in your profile might be important :D
