Brian,

Can't point you to the setting in RecordNow, but you could try changing the file system from ISO to UDF or ISO/UDF.

Btw: A single layer DVD can't hold much more than 4GB. The Giga in "4.7GB" is decimal based (1,000,000,000 bytes), whereas the Gigabyte on a computer is binary based (1,073,741,824 bytes). This makes that a 4.7GB DVD has a storage capacity of about 4.37GB.

To avoid possible problems later, I would suggest to limit the size of a single file on a DVD to 4GB or less.
