Why do 4.700.359.022 bytes not fit on a DVD+R ?

Recommended Posts

I tried to burn a couple of files with a total size of 4.700.359.022 bytes on a DVD+R.

According to the spec the maximum possible capacity for a DVD+R is at least 4,700,372,992 bytes.

 

Furthermore I could burn the same files without any problems on the same burner, the same DVD+R

and the same WinXP with another burning software (Nero and CDburnerXP) WITHOUT problems.

 

However I am getting warnings and error when I try to burn these files with

ImgBurn (see attached snapshots).

 

So this must be a bug of ImgBurn.

 

Could you fix this in the next release ?

 

Thank you

Peter

You have to take into account the filesystem overhead. Try using only ISO9660 or UDF and it might fit in your disc.

This is not true.

 

Even when I burn with pure "UDF" the data on a DVD the error message popup appears.

 

With Nero or CDburnerXP they are burned without problems.

 

So again: this must be a bug of ImgBurn

It's not a bug.

 

Using UDF would make it bigger, plain old ISO9660 would produce the smallest filesystem overhead. Add Joliet so you get pretty (long) file names.
