...and with the typical behavior he should be out in less than a week, they'd be glad to get rid of him. :teehee:

So it's:

2,297,888 Sectors

= 4706074624 Bytes

= 4595776 KB

= 4488.0625 MB <-- being less than 4531 MB and hence too small.

= 4.38287353515625 GB

Excellent post LUK!.

May I ask where you got those figures?

In all honesty through all the years that I've been burning DVDs I have seen lots of different figures posted/written all over the internet.

For instance, if you take wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD you will read 2,298,496 sectors for DVD-R SL (4,707,319,808bytes) and 2,295,104 sectors for DVD+R SL (4,700,372,992bytes).

I'm just curious because I'm thinking about coding a small tool that calculates single pass video encoding (of legit video contents) and I would really like to know the exact amount of sectors.

Not that a difference of 608 sectors can screw my calculations but I thought, if I'm gonna try to do something useful I might as well do it properly with accurate figures ;-).

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Put a disc in your drive and read it from the info panel on the right.

 

Drives do seem to jump between 1 of 2 numbers when they initialise the discs though - and of course DVD+R is different to DVD-R.
