View Full Version : File sizes?

Why does the SageRecorder software report one file size for the resulting capture, while Windows reports a totally different file size? Which one needs to be less than 4.7Gb to fit on a DVD?
depend on how Jeff set it up he could be real bits of 1000 that CD use in stead of 1024bit that harddisk use

I use MB=1000000 bytes which is simliar to how hard disks are sized; for hard drives GB=1000000000
In Windows; it uses MB=1048576=2^20
That's why you see different sizes.

It should really be less than 4.6GB as Lead In and Lead Out on the DVD usually eat around 100 MB of space between them.
If I'm rigth it should be a round 4.3GB just be on the safe side, beware that 4.7GB is unformat disk

Ok, but which one needs to be below 4.3Gb, the SageRecorder file size, or the Windows file size?
