What is the maximum MPG file size that will fit on a 4.7 GB DVD?
NO SHRINK -- NO ISO CUTS -- NO conversion to different formats.
NO compression, no shrinking, no splitting, no quality reduction.
Amazing that NO ONE has answered this as far as I can find on Google.
Given Roxio (which I use) or Nero and a direct, no-loss, no-shrink conversion from MPEG2 to the DVD format, how small does the MPG have to be? I tried 4.1 GB, I tried 3.5 GB, and I tried 3.1 GB. They would not fit. Other people say they cannot even fit a 750MB MPG file onto a 4.7GB in DVD format.
The question is specific, I dont want it sidetracked on discussing drive, file or recording problems, or other programs, this is a question requiring a numerical answer -- the maximum GB size of an MPG2 file, that when converted to DVD, will fit on a 4.7GB DVD.
I will only award the answer to someone who has gone through this hassle, and knows the maximum size. Thank you, please only comment if you have done this and know the problem. And if you say a 4.1 to 4.3 MPG will fit onto a 4.7 GB disc when converted to DVD format, you do NOT know what I am talking about. Sorry....
