    I found comments online about that though the maximum capacity of a DVD is 4.3GB, you should't burn it fully, but leave a small empty space. Is this correct? If yes, what is the recommended maximum amount I should burn?

    4480mb is the max, but if your worried about recovery etc do 4096mb and use multipar to make recovery info. That way in the event of a error you can get your files back...usually. I do this with pretty much all the dics I author with 5-10% redundancy. Just writing less really does nothing as a scratch is well a scratch at the end of the day
    if all else fails read the manual

    Anything over 4gb is suspect, as disc edges don't always burn well even on the best media.
    I generally stop at 4.25gb, never filling entire 4.37gb.
