Cannot burn large media files

Specs: Windows XP
I have problems while trying to burn video files to my DVD (4.7). The burner reports that the space available on the DVD is lesser than the size of the media file (4.39gb). Burning other files lesser in size is not a problem and I usually burn in data dvd mode.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

The largest file you can burn on a DVD has to be 4.38 GB or smaller.

As XPUser describes, the "dirty little secret" of the computer world is that most media (beyond floppy disks) is advertised as being a factor of 1,000,000,000 bytes (10^9), when in actuality the real computer world looks at 1GB as being 2^30 bytes. That means that 4.7GB is actually only 93.1% of the advertised value ((1,000,000,000/(2^30))*4.7GB=4.377GB). For the same reason that 1TB drive you buy will never hold more than 909 to 931GB:
