    good question. I'm guessing over two hours since the dvd-r drive speeds are still slow and running at, what? 8x? 4.7gb is a a lot compared to a 700mb cd-r.

    yeah, you do need 2 know how fast your write/re-write seed is. for example, my CD/RW drive is an old 4x Write 4x RE-Write 24x Read. (don't laugh!) it takes 15 min for me to record a full 80 min (700MB) CD but i can start it and leave it. that is wot i do

    On the New Imac they have at school i belive it is like 3hours for 3.5GB at 2x if you dont verify it. but you can NOT get 4.7 on a blank dvd period, they mesure them differntly and there is the required information on them, 4.3 is i belive how big the Dvd-r's are, one sided on layered.
