comment What is the most common word in use to describe 'DVD' and what is its measure word
DVD 5 or 9 are the most common DVD disc types I have come across in China. DVD 5 refers to a 4.7gb single-sided single layer disc and DVD 9 is a 8.5gb single sided dual-layer disc. In practice something on a DVD 9 disc will normally be of higher quality.

comment What is the correct way to say: “I thought you were somebody else.”
Yes I agree, but I was trying to get as close to a direct translation of the phrase in the question, i.e. saying i thought you were someone else and not just that that I got the wrong person, otherwise I'd go with Terry's answer.

I think you could say that, although I haven't heard it much. It would probably be better without the 的 - as in this case apparently it just sounds better. Am not sure why, but hopefully a native speaker can clear this up.
