Nero Recode always exceeding disc size

I've been annoyed by this issue ever since Nero 6, and it still exists in 7. Everytime I use the DVD-5/9 preset when I trascode DVDs, the ending result will always exceed DVD-5/9 sizes, even with 2-pass. I have to set custom sizes (4400MB for DVD5, 8000MB for DVD9) at all times to prevent Recode over-sizing. Any ideas?

I've heard one or two others report, this, but I have not yet been able to duplicate this on any of my systems.

Are there others who are running into this? Or others who are not?

Updated to the latest version, the problem still there. Recoded DVDs are always a couple of megabytes (Ive seen 50MB more) more than the max size of DVD-5/9. On the bright side, if I limit the size (4400MB/8000MB for DVD-5/9 respectively), Recode now seems to match it real close, sometimes exact. Before, even limiting to 4400MB/8000MB sometimes still produced oversized DVDs.

I've observed this problem in all of my 3 PCs.
1. AXP 1700+, 768Mb RAM, WinXP home SP2, Nero 6
2. P4 2.6GHz HT, 1GB RAM, WinXP home SP2, Nero 6 & 7.
3. Core 2 6400, 1GB RAM, WinXP home SP2, Nero 7.

On many burning forums it is suggested to burn no more than 4360 to be sure the DVD 5 disc can handle movies. I use the newest Recode and have set my size to custom 4300 and have yet to have a problem. I have a Hitachi 52-inch widescreen and movies look good this way.

Our Engineers have been aware of this bug, and they believe they have been able to fix this issue. At least during the testing it is resolved. :D

The assure me that the next web update will include a fix for this issue in Nero Recode.
