    - having created several -R discs recently using the FR mode for stuff which exceeds the standard XP vs disc space.

    I have noticed when looking at the properties via a PC, that the discs are only infact 3.95GB used.

    Is this normal?

    I assume it is, and if it is then it's a great waste of space on recordable discs which could be beter utilised into providing better PQ.

    I believe the 4.1GB size is the maximum indivudual file size in the DVD -R file specification although the disk can actually hold 4.38GB.
    Authoring software such as Movifactory 2 from Ulead will , if the recording exceeds 4.1GB , generate a second contiguous file to make up the difference.

    I noticed the same thing. RAM also has an average 4GB limit

    I now record everything at least in SP mode and then edit on the computer. This is so I can use the full capacity of a +R/+RW.

    I use a combination of DVD Author, MPEG2VCR and DVD2DVD-R to get the best results.
