Only 4.3gb on dvd+r?

on the box of my maxell dvd+rs, it saids 4.7gb.

but nero refuse to burn anything above 4.3gb to the dvd+r, why?

i heard about overburning, but i fear of it damaging my drive, duel layer disc cost as much as 10dvd+rs here in my country, so that’s not an option.

please help, i own winxp sp2 with liteon 1693s
