Default confused about the real DVD5 capacity.

I am confused about the real DVD5 capacity.
Is it 4.7gb, or 4.38gb of actual data storage?

Using BurnAware, set to UDF, I got 4,366mb total
size on disk;However, it says 117mb free.
huh? Is this a software error?

4.7 - 4.366 = 0.334
But, 4.38 - 4.366 = 0.014
Therefore, either 334mb or 14mb are really left on disk, not 117mb.
