I was trying to burn Conker today, and it is 4.5GB
I put a 4.7GB dvd-r in the dvd-writer, and it said not enough space, and i found that there are only 4.38GB space avaliable......
I test two brand, memorx and yamakawa and both are same result......

how can I use all the 4.7GB??

extract the iso with qwix or whatever xiso app,

then delete the update.xbe and dashupdate.xbe ,

now create new xiso without those files ,

now you can burn it to a dvd-r,

by the way

DVD-5 holds around 4 700 000 000 bytes and that is 4.37GB
1 kbyte = 1024 bytes,

its a misleading way of companies trying to bullshit the unaware customers

same thing as with the isp's which tell you you are getting lets say a 3mbs connection but its 3mbit not 3 mbyte , so roughly 300kBs download speed not 3MBs ...which most people will think

Thanks Bob, you actually just fixed my problem with burning Halo2.

And just enlightened me and internet connections.

256 MegaBit (My internet connection) / 8 = 32 (My download speed)
i just wish it was 256MegaBytes. Very Happy

It's the evil dvd monkeys with their powerful black magic that got to your dvd's and made it 4.379 gigs instead of 4.69 gigs. They have been working with the government to cause mass chaos upon the public even though you can't see them, they're there just waiting! Crap the monkeys found out that I told the truth and now they're out to kill me this might be my last message farewell everyone for I don't think I can last the night so pray for me!!! PRAY!!!! Arrrrrggggg........
