Because there is a release of the dual layer dvds industry professionals didn't work hard to overburn dvds, wasn't worth of it, besides u can't overburn to much of a dvd, the pits (where information is stored) are much much smaller and numerous then the cd, and on a full burned dvd 4,7 all the pits are already full, Only few space still exist in the pits. that is because u can only overburner

U can overburn but probably future reading errors or mix information will happen, And if the goal to overburn is form movies, forget it because , has much u full the pits less quality u will obtain. There for encoding a dvd movie to each limit will result in less quality. That is why industry came with the double layered discs.

"It seems that BeAll has improved their production technology for DVD-R disks. According to eMediaLive, BeAll released a new, so called DVD-R EX (Extreme eXtended) with a recording capacity of 4.85 GB.

Compared to regular DVD-R disks with a capacity of 4.7GB is this new media "ideal for two-hour DV-tape video transfers, personal backup of DVD-videos, and especially for DVD games which are sometimes a little larger than regular 4.7GB disks", said BeAll's general manager Seong-Joom Kim."

I think aprox 4.85 GB is the max u can get, i'm affraid :-)

So the best way is to buy a dual layer DVD ;-)
