Videos are not compiled into "dates", they are just time-stamped. Yep, having duration displayed for each clip would be handy, I wonder why they don't do that. You can calculate amount of recorded video if you know memory card's size, bitrate of current recording mode and remaining time, the latter is displayed. Or just record onto 4GB cards, they will obviously fit onto 4.7GB disc.
BTW, I was archiving onto 4.7GB DVDs and stopped doing it, too many discs. I am using BDs now, 25GB, price per GB is about the same, but 5 times fewer discs.
