As Manty says, not quite. One GB is measured in 2^30 bytes, the other in 10^9 bytes. The images we have now are taking up 4686704640 and 4428851200 bytes, adding up to 9115555840 bytes. The maximum that can safely be written on a DL DVD is just over 8500000000 bytes. >> The main reason I was trying to do the DL DVD was for commercial >> distributors, but in the end the interested people all said they'd >> prefer to use 2 DVDs instead. > >I'm interested because of the cost of courier fees.
