How much space on a 4.75gb -r

Ok, I have just started editing using Pinnacle 9. What I want to do initially is archive off my footage from my tapes so I can reuse those.

I am capturing the video and doing a rough cut and creating an avi file and saving this down on a dvd with the intention of bringing it back later and making a movie.

My question is just how much big a file can I save on a 4.75b disk. Pinnacle usefully tells you how big the avi will be but I certainly can't get anywhere near 4.75bgb, somewhere nearer 4gb. Is this me or is it normal.
Oh, and is this the most efficient way to archive stuff.

Regards Mike

You can get 4.7 billion bytes or about 4.37GB on the disk.

Thanks, kdaves, I will make my avi files just under that to make sure. I thought it may have been my imagination that I couldn't use the full 4.75
