DVD Capacity compared to CD (for data storage)

Hi all,

What I would like to do is create a historical database for containing as many records as possible stored on a removable drive.

Is there any quick answer regarding DVD capacity compared to regular CD for storing data? If the answer is complicated (as I suspect) I would really appreciate if you could point me to the right links.
