After copying DL DVD to ISO image, I initated a burn of ISO image to DL DVD. ImgBurn gave message: "Dual layer DVD not necessary, Do you wish to burn anyway"? I wondered if maybe the space didn't actually require a DL DVD. Therefore, I inserted a single layer DVD into drive. Then imgBurn told me that "There is not enough space on this DVD".

I replaced the original DL DVD blank and initiated the burn again, this time ignoring the message that a dual layer DVD was not necessary. The DVD burned and worked perfectly.

Just a small message problem that I wanted to report.

Can you post the logs of those two attempts?

The checks are done using predefined values (sizes of discs).

If your drive reports a lower capacity than the predefined values, that could be why you were having the problem.

Also note that sometimes it'll tell you the image can fit on a DVD-R disc. That doesn't mean a DVD+R disc will work too - it might not as they come up slightly smaller.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!
